ONITSHA – Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged the Federal Government to implore dialogue in the current cases of agitation in the country.
Anambra state chapter of CAN called on the Federal Government to give a fair hearing to the different agitators for self-determination like Nnamdi Kalu and Sunday Igboho, insisting that dialogue is the best approach towards unity and justice.
Reacting to the security situation of the country, the association frowned at the activities of the Security Agencies who mount on roadblocks where they extort money and intimidate the populace and appealed to the Federal Government to look into this situation for a better society.
CAN expresses dismay over the gruesome murder of many innocent Nigerians, occasioned by the incessant attacks of Fulani herdsmen and unknown gunmen in various locations across the country.
It stated this in their communique during their State Executive meeting, which was held on Wednesday, August 11 at Emmanuel Anglican Church, Onitsha, Anambra State.
Signed by CAN state chairman, Ven. Joseph Nweke, the communique urges the chief security officers of the federation and at the state level to step up efforts in taming the tide.
