Christian Association In Northern Nigeria Calls For Resignation Of President Jonathan

By SaharaReporters

Goodluck Jonathan For his inability to contain Boko Haram, and statements indicating his inability, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Northern Nigeria today described President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as a failure and asked him to resign.

In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Elder Sunday Oibe, CAN said it would no longer trust any commitment expressed by President Jonathan, citing his inept leadership.

It pointed out that Mr. Jonathan’s recent positions portray him as soft and that he cannot overcome the daily insurgency and killings of security operatives, civilians and foreigners in the country.

“Are those being killed by the Islamic sect, particularly Christians not members of the Nigerian family the President is talking about?” the association asked, querying whether members of Boko Haram are now sacred cows.

“What he is telling us now is that there is nothing he can do about it, but we know that the federal government has the capacity to stop the madness being unleashed on Nigerians, however, it is now obvious that the President would rather shield criminal.”

Turning to the federal government’s justification of its opposition to Boko Haram being branded a terrorist group, namely that Nigeria may come under sanctions which will hurt Nigerians as well as scare away investors, CAN asked: “Are we not hurt already? Are Nigerians not suffering? How many investors are coming to invest?”

It pointed out that many business premises in Yobe, Maiduguri, Kano, Kaduna and Jos have already shut down.

“Nobody is coming up north to set up any business,” the association said. “People are selling off their houses and relocating from the north. Our churches are being close down on a daily basis. So what investor is the government talking about?”

    it is cowardice for most of u to be bearing names like south north, kk etc. Jonathan should resign for his inability to curtail scurity chalenges which is the priority of any goverment and for shielding BH boys after the former NSA and Buhari has given us clue to their sponsors. rather he appointed Okupe to be defending his lapses.
