CAN Voices Out, Don’t Make Nigeria A Muslim/Arab Nation

Umbrella body of Christians in
Nigeria, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, last night protested the
attempt by the current All Progressives Congress, APC, government to subtly
enlist Nigeria among Arab nations to fight ISIS.
It was reported on foreign news
last night that Saudi Arabia was building a coalition of 34 Muslim/Arab
countries to fight ISIS and Nigeria was named among the 34.
A statement late last night by the
General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake, said: “This singular gesture of the
Buhari government betrays so much, and tends to confirm our fears that
underneath everything this government is doing, there is an agenda with strong
Islamic undertones, aimed at undermining Nigeria’s pluralistic character and
neutrality regarding government’s affiliation to any one religion.

“While joining hands with other
countries to fight ISIS is something good, our country must not be tagged as a
Muslim or Arab nation. Christians must make a public statement showing their
discontent on this development which portends great danger to national unity
and integration.”
