Rev. Samson Ayokunle, President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has called on the Federal Government to overhaul the security apparatus in the country.
Lamenting over the killing of 14 members of a Baptist Church in Kogi State, Rev. Ayokunle said there was no need for any more excuses and sympathies from the government.
The CAN president made the call at a wedding ceremony in Abuja on Sunday, stating that the citizens deserve to live their lives in maximum security.
“Just a week ago, 14 members of a Baptist Church in Kogi State were slaughtered overnight. Nobody is safe. These radicals can attack from any angle. The people of this nation deserve to live their lives in maximum security,” he said.
“The government has to up its game. No more excuses and no more sympathies for people that have died. We can’t allow more people to keep dying.”
Also at the event, Archbishop John Praise, the Founder of Dominion Chapel International Church, urged Christians to keep their faith alive and pray for God to reposition the country towards the right part.
“We have to keep our faith alive and keep trusting the Lord. We shouldn’t be weary. I believe our faith will keep us afloat regardless of what is happening currently,” he said.
