CAN, Lalong Met Buhari Over Sharibu, Others (theNation)

The planned Peaceful protest match to come up for 11 July, 2018 have been postponed by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) due to some circumstances beyond its control.

This is contented in a statement released by the Special Assistant, (Media & Communications) to His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle and made available to Naija News

However, the scheduled 3-days fasting and prayer meant to come up in July 9-11, 2018 in all churches and state chapters of CAN will still hold.

He added that church/denominational leaders would still be meeting at the National Christian Center with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of CAN on the 11th of July at 10am to cry to God for our land.

CAN had declared July 9-11, 2018 as NATIONAL DAYS OF PRAYERS AND FASTING AGAINST UNWARRANTED KILLINGS IN THE LAND and called on all well-meaning Nigerians, both within and outside the country, to join Christians on July 11, 2018 for a PEACEFUL PROTEST AGAINST THE KILLINGS.

CAN had hinged its decision on willful and persistent killings of fellow citizens in general and Christians in particular nationwide, and mostly in Plateau and Benue where mass burial has become the norm without any positive response from the country’s security agencies.

CAN had expressed gross concern and grave disappointment over the continuous killings despite al clarion calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to re-organise his security team by replacing all the security chiefs.
