President Goodluck Jonathan
The North-east chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has dissociated itself from the call by the northern leadership of the association to President Goodluck Jonathan to resign for his inability to address the endemic security challenges posed by the Boko Haram sect in the country.
Speaking yesterday in an interview in Bauchi, the North-east CAN Chairman. Rev. Shuaibu Byal, said the zonal leadership of the association was shocked over the development because “we have never met or been consulted by anybody on the issue.
So the North -ast Christians are not parts of the request for the president to resign over the Boko Haram insurgency.’’ Byal, who lamented that though christians in the region are worried over the spate of killings and attacks on innocent people by the sect, they will keep on praying rather than making such comments that can over heat the polity in this critical period.
