CAN urges Buhari to declare state of emergency on federal roads

CAN Chairman, Bishop John Ibenu


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency on federal roads, especially those linking North Central to southern states that have become death traps and ambush for kidnappers and armed robbers to torment Nigerians.

Chairman of CAN, Kogi State Chapter, Bishop John Ibenu, said this yesterday in his speech at the plenary meeting of the association at the Chapel of Freedom International Church in Adankolo, Lokoja.

Ibenu, who also frowned at the recent irregularities in the Mainagate and other cases even as he called on the Federal Government to make the war against corruption more holistic without any sacred cows, said the insecurity in the country had remained a worrisome on the minds of the people of Kogi State and Nigeria in general.

He said though Nigeria is said to be out of recession, the common man is yet to feel the impact.He, therefore, called on the President to make it translate to the day-to-day life of Nigerians.

The Kogi State CAN chairman, who called for prayers for the will of God to prevail for peace and unity during the forthcoming 2019 general elections, the heat of which is already being felt, implored all Christians to register to enable them collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC).“All Christians are to join any viable political party of their choice and seek for political offices they wish,” he said.
