The Kano State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle Nigeria’s Security architecture.
The state chairman of CAN, Rev Samuel Adeyemo, made this known while speaking at the “Pastors Solemn Assembly for the Peace and Security of the Church” in Kano held at the Believers Fellowship Baptist Church.
Rev Adeyemo urged President Buhari to review the structure in the face of the numerous security challenges in the land.
He cited insurgents’ attacks in the Northeast as well as the wave of banditry, kidnapping and armed robbery on the highways in other parts of the country as a basis for the appeal and the prayers.
“The wave of kidnapping, herdsmen killings, armed robbery attacks on our highways and the insecurity in nation prompted us to call for these prayers. Muslims and Christians must rise up and pray.
“Secondly, let the security apparatus of the nation, that is the Federal Government needs to reshuffle the security apparatus; let them review it because we have the expertise; we have the materials to restore the nation’s security,” he said.
He commended Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and other security agencies for their roles in keeping the state safe.
