CAN backs prayers, not separatist calls
Written by MaryGift Sunday on April 5, 2021
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged agitators for secession to pray and await God’s divine intervention for the country instead of demanding the separation of the country along ethnic lines.
The Chairman of Katsina State branch of CAN, Reverend Nelson Onyekachuku, made the appeal after officiating the mass at St. There’s Catholic Church in Katsina.
The cleric told reporters on the sidelines of the religious event that what the state and the country need are prayers and not “unnecessary agitations and promotion of ethnic agendas”.
He added: “The time calls for sober reflection, humility and sacrifice, as exemplified in the lives and times of our Lord Saviour Jesus Christ.
“Our country is passing through difficult times characterised by insecurity, threats of kidnapping and others.
“We must pray for those in government and support them for the good of them land.”
The CAN chairman hailed Governor Aminu Bello Masari for rebuilding the state’s infrastructure.
