The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on Sunday claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has foiled every attempt by the leadership of the body to dialogue to proffer solutions to religious killings and crisis happening in parts of the country.
CAN faulted the belief in some quarters that it has not been pragmatic enough in responding to issues that concerned Christians in the country.
President of the Youth Wing of CAN, Daniel Kadzai, who made the disclosure noted that while the association had been standing up for the defence of Christianity, “the government’s disposition to some of the issues affecting Christians are not encouraging”.
He said the leadership of CAN “has been denied audience with the President to brainstorm on how best to solve some challenges in the country”.
According to Kadzai “The Ayokunle-led leadership is poised to ensure that all Christians worship without fear or intimidation throughout the country.
“The man (Ayokunle) just took over the mantle of leadership and he met crisis on the ground. He is up and doing to stabilize the system to be able to address the common problems we are facing as a body.
“He has made several attempts to see the President of this country to table some challenges that have been bedeviling the nation and the challenges facing the Christendom.
“Unfortunately, the Federal Government of Nigeria is not willing to see the CAN President because of one reason or the others.
“CAN is not in contention with anybody. CAN is focusing on ensuring the liberty and freedom for its members to worship across the country.
“If CAN is coming out in the media to take a position on an issue, we are not addressing the media to incite our members, but only addressing the media to voice out the challenges facing our members throughout the country”, he stated.
