Resign for Nigeria to move forward, CAN, PFN tell Buhari



Resign for Nig to move forward, CAN, PFN tell Buhari

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) on Thursday suggested that President Muhammadu Buhari resigns for the country to move forward.

The South-South chapters of CAN and PFN stated this at a joint briefing in Warri, Delta State.

Bemoaning the present situation of things in Nigeria since Buhari became president, the two Christian bodies said, “The economy is dying. When Jonathan handed over to Buhari, the exchange rate was between N170 to N190 to a dollar. Today, it is N550 to a dollar. Imagine how things had gone bad? … if he (Buhari) cannot save the country, let him resign for the country to move to where God wants it to be.”

They frowned that President Buhari has been indifferent to the killings of Christians in Northern Nigeria and said that the situation has got to the point where self-help becomes the compelling option for Christians to protect themselves.

Bishop Simeon Okah, national vice president of PFN (South-South), said during the briefing which took place after a closed door meeting of the groups, that the “number one issue, is this Fulani herdsmen in our bushes. We are no longer going to fold our hands and watch while they kill our people. Some governors are saying they are not from the North. That claim is an insult to us.

“Today our children are now being deported from America and here we have people from outside our country killing people and raping our daughters, mother and wives. Our farmers no longer have farmlands to farm. I think it’s high time we started defending ourselves if the government cannot help us.”

The clergy further said that the Christian body remains in full support of Apostle Johnson Suleiman, adding that his recent comment was the mind of Christians in Nigeria.

    Yes, buhari should step down for Osinbajo. Osinbajo can rule this country well. Since he began acting as president, so many things are fallen in shape. Buhari should resign and that is if he is not dead yet.

      Insha Allahu, baba buhari won’t die. It is you that will die. Osinbajo won’t be northern president but may be urs.
      Foolish and indecent girl you are.

      Osinbajo should be our president for now why buhari should keep staying in London and never to think of coming back because if he does that means he will now die the second death and never to come back

    Just imagine how insensitive these people are, Buhari should resign? Were they not among those who voted him to power? If they cannot endure till 2019, they should gather themselves to Abuja and force him to resign. Rubbish talk

      Bros, 2019 is looking too far to everyone at the moment. We cannot blame CAN and PFN for whatever they have to say. We are all facing the issues in its all-time high in this country, and if resigning is the key to sought it out, let the President kindly do so.

    Things may not be going well in the country today, but as Christians, they don’t need to start condemning the government out of frustration, they should pray for the government instead. If Buhari should resign, it will take more time for the another person to figure out what the problems of Nigeria are.

    This sprout out as vegenance on mr president refusal to act on southern kaduna killing . CAN and PFN are messing up big times. These were the same people who revealed so many prophecies that “buhari will change Nigeria” , “Buhari will be the best president” and so many praises on buhari as at then, so what happen to their fake prophecies?
    CAN and PFN are nothing other than bodies of corrupt pastors who are denting the images of true pastors .
