Worried by the alleged Islamisation agenda, the Christian Association of Nigeria has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to the meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, a day after his inauguration, noting that it was unconstitutional and confirmed.
CAN added that as Buhari began his second term in office, he should have a blueprint for the security challenges facing the country as well as avoid lopsided appointments in every facet of the government, “especially in the appointment chief security officers.”
In a release on Saturday by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, the Special Assistant on Media and Communications to CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, the Christian body noted that Nigeria was “smuggled into OIC during the military”, and wondered if the President would be ready to attend the meeting of the World Council of Churches or ask the Vice President to represent him whenever the members meet.
CAN said, “With all the cries we have made about the unconstitutionality of Nigeria’s membership of OIC, going for such conference was still the first assignment of President Buhari after being sworn in. Are the government officials listening to those who voted them into power at all? Is the government not heating up the polity? We wonder if the President is ready to attend the meeting of the World Council of Churches or be asking the Vice President to represent him whenever the members meet” CAN said.
