The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the 19 Northern states and Abuja have expressed misgivings over the prevailing harsh economy and incessant insecurity, while declaring that the suffering in the country had become unbearable to ordinary Nigerians.

CAN especially lamented the increasing security challenge.

Expressing its views, on Friday, in its statement entitled, “The Federal Government Should Urgently Address The Escalating Insecurity And Hunger In The Country,” and released by its Secretary-General, Elder Sunday Oibe, in Kaduna, Northern CAN, called on the Federal Government to urgently address the depressing economic and escalating security situation in the country.

The organisation said that the suffering being experienced by citizens was becoming unbearable for ordinary Nigerians as the high cost of foodstuffs, transportation, goods, and services had made life difficult for many Nigerians.

According to CAN, the situation was compounded by the escalating insecurity occasioned by rampant killings and kidnapping for ransom.

He also said the Christian body was sad over the continued attack on Plateau State, where no fewer than 300 people were killed.

CAN called on the government to do everything possible to halt the killings in Plateau and all across the country.

It said, “The Christian Association of Nigeria in the 19 Northern States and the Federal Capital Territory wishes to express its deep concern over the prevailing economic hardship and the increasing security challenges across the country.

“The suffering in the country is becoming unbearable for ordinary Nigerians. The high cost of foodstuffs, transportation, goods, and services has made life difficult for many Nigerians.

“The epileptic power supply has led to the collapse of many small businesses.

“The continued decline in the value of the naira and the seeming inability of the government to address the situation has completely weakened the purchasing power of ordinary Nigerians.

“The situation is further compounded by escalating insecurity occasioned by rampant killings and kidnapping for ransom.

“Unless justice is done, by ensuring that the perpetrators and whoever are the sponsors are brought to book, all the talks about peace may be mere rhetorics.

“Government must take urgent steps to address the depressing economic and escalating security situation in the country.

“We called on governments at all levels to support our security agencies with all that is required to fight these criminals.

“We also called on Nigerians to cooperate with security personnel and pray for them as they confront these enemies of the nation.”
