CAN President Attacks Buhari Over Mecca Trip

CAN President Attacks Buhari Over Mecca Trip

The Christian Association of Nigeria has condemned the trip of President Muhammadu Buhari to Saudi Arabia for a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation a day after his inauguration.

In a statement made on Saturday by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, who's the Special Assistant on Media and Communications to the CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, the large Christian body wondered if the President of Nigeria would be ready to attend the meeting of the World Council of Churches or ask his deputy to represent him whenever the members met.

CAN also made it known that President Muhammad Buhari began his second term in office, he should have a blueprint for the security challenges facing the country as well as avoid lopsided appointments in every facet of the government, "especially in the appointment of chief security officers."

The report added, "With all the cries we have made about the unconstitutionality of Nigeria's membership of the OIC, going for such conference was still the first assignment of President Buhari after being sworn in. 
"Are the government officials listening to those who voted them into power at all?"


"The likes of Obasanjo are treated as honourable statesmen in the United States and the United Kingdom, but here, we abuse our former leaders whenever their thoughts are critical of the government's actions or policies.
