Northern CAN expresses fear over insecurity, looming food crisis CAN-1

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in 19 Northern states and Abuja, have said they have nothing to celebrate on Nigeria’s democracy day as a result of the excruciating pain and hardship in the country.

CAN explained that democracy is about recognising and guaranteeing the fundamental human rights of citizens, saying that it is about allowing the will of the people to take preeminence in matters of public concern.

The Public Relations Officer of Northern CAN, Rev Jechonia Albert, in a statement titled; “Democracy Day, Insecurity and the looming food crisis”, made available to Press in Kaduna on Monday lamented that the larger majority of Nigerian People cannot breathe because of certain undemocratic tendencies of their leaders.

The group urged President Muhammadu Buhari to go beyond rhetorics and match his words with action this time around to inspire confidence among Nigerian People.

”These attacks, if not checked, many parents and children would be forced to abstain from school, given the recent cases in Kaduna, Zamfara, Katsina and Niger States, where parents of abducted schoolchildren paid hundreds of millions of naira to bandits for the release of their children.

CAN called on the federal government to urgently address the security situation once and for all to liberate Nigerian People from criminal gangs and their reign of terror while appreciating the efforts of security agencies despite the challenges they also face in protecting Nigerian People.
