Just In: CAN supports Obasanjo over letter to Buhari

The Christian Association of Nigeria has endorsed the open letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari, describing it as “timely”.

The  body said  Buhari  should  curb the insecurity in the country.

Responding to questions during a news conference in Abuja on Thursday, CAN President, Rev Supo  Ayokunle, urged  Buhari to treat the letter “with all sense of responsibility and accountability”.

He said, “CAN is interested in the letter being  treated with all sense of responsibility and accountability as a country because of the issues raised in it. I think the aim of the writer is to call the attention of the nation to things that are capable of setting  the nation on fire.

“We think that every Nigerian has the right to caution  the leaders.”

Citing the security situation in Taraba State,  he  said  his deputy, Rev Caleb Ahima, could not travel out of his parish without military protection,  saying  the state was under siege.
