The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has disclosed that the association will vehemently resist all forms of oppressive policies against the Christian faith and Nigerians at large.
The president of CAN, Rev. Samson Ayokunle disclosed this during the interdenominational service of songs and tribute in honour of late Rev. Musa Asake, the secretary general of CAN, yesterday.
Ayokunle decried that Nigeria is bedeviled with myriads of problems and decried that the church that ought to represent heaven and put things in order needs to be put in order first.
According to him, “We will vehemently resist anything that will lead to religious persecution in Nigeria. We shall do what we are called to do and do it well.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria will oppose anything that is oppressive to the Christian faith and Nigerians at large.
“So many things are wrong in the country. The wave of violence in the country presently is unprecedented and it needs to stop.”
In his sermon, Old Time Revival Hour, Bro Mathew Owojaiye said Nigerians are facing a hostile environment nay a hostile government.
“Christian in the middle belt and in the North East are being battered, villages and farms are ransacked and burnt down, children, women are brutally murdered,” he said.
He decried that Nigeria belongs to several Islamic organisations while appointments, developmental projects and government policies are skewed to favour Muslims.
“Either the government does not have the political will to stop it or the murderers are the agents of government.
“Nigeria is bedeviled with myriads of problems. The church that is supposed to represent heaven and put things in order needs to be put in order.
“It is either our Christian politicians who should protect our interest have been compromised or too afraid to speak.”
