News and Events

The Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) is worried at the resurfacing of long queues at filling stations in Nigeria  after several increase in fuel price to ensure the availability of the product to all citizens in recent past.

 

We are not only so concerned that this seeming artificial scarcity is happening mostly during Christmas period but we are disturbed that everything is looking like an attempt to deliberately sabotage the celebration of Christmas by the Christians. 

The Attack by Fulani herdsmen yesterday was a reprisal attack to what happened last two weeks in Shafaron Village of Numan Adamawa State. Last week information came to the people about the incoming of several Fulani and foreigners into the state and believed to have been camped around Mayo Belwa.

It is now clear that if Christians do not organize to actively participate in Governance, the instrument of the State shall be used to progressively decimate the Church until Christianity is eventually “eradicated in all its forms and ramifications” in Nigeria. To avoid this calamity from coming to pass, the NCEF advises all Christians as follows:

On Tuesday morning of 7th. November, 2017, an unusual impressive gathering of Christian elders and leaders in Nigeria packed full the Shepherdhill Baptist Church, Obanikoro, Lagos where they all in one accord gathered for a special event to deliberate on the challenges facing the Church in the country. After special opening prayer and the rendition of the national anthem by Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the CAN president  delivered the keynote speech at the gracious and  auspicious occasion. The Nigerian  Church  has been through storms over time, and especially  in recent years.

...Islamisation agenda is real
...Decries non payment of wages to workers
...Calls on Govts to repair roads, stop medical tourism
...Asks FG to revive the Interreligious Council

Christian leaders in the country Tuesday called on the National Assembly to list all international organisations that Nigeria belongs to with a view to withdrawing her membership from those that are religious.

I think I have to speak at last in response to what His Excellency, the VP, Prof Oshinbajo said which seemed to be a misunderstanding of CAN leadership's position on the collaborative grand plan to Islamize Nigeria.

First of all, his statement may be based on his lack of enough facts on the subject matter of the grand plan of Islamization of Africa and Nigeria in particular in which the government of Nigeria has been collaborating with OIC & Islam in Africa Organization. 

1. The takeover agenda


The takeover agenda of the Benue valley and the entire Nigeria nation by the Fulani has been there since the time of Othman Dan Fodio. They did not succeed through war, so they fight now through politics and cattle business. The expansionist drive is embedded in their major religion, politics, and their everyday life. They understand their game and are good at it. Unfortunately, most of even our educated folks in the Benue valley seem not to fully understand their plan.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Thursday stated that the letter reportedly endorsing the Governor of Ekiti State,  Ayo Fayose, for the 2019 presidential election by Rev Dr. Musa Asake, was done in his personal capacity and not as its General Secretary. 

Since the letter was leaked to the media, for whatever reasons, some prominent Christian stakeholders have been making calls to CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, asking for the clarifications since there was never a time the matter was discussed by the leadership of the Association. Hence the need for this statement.
