- CAN has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari's response to Donald Trump on the killing of Christians in Nigeria
- Speaking in Kaduna, CAN vice president John Hayab described Buhari's statement as weak and not reflective of Nigeria's security reality
- Hayab also scolded the current government, saying it lacks the will to stop killings in southern Kaduna and other parts of the country
The Christians Associaton of Nigeria (CAN) has described as weak and insincere the response of President Muhammadu Buhari to Donald Trump when being confronted with the killing of Christians in Nigeria.
CAN’s vice president, John Hayab, made the declaration on Tuesday, September 8, in Kaduna state, adding that Buhari and his government is full of amusing "tales by moonlight."
Hayab said Buhari's response to the United States president's question was weak and a lie flying in the face of facts. He added that the crisis is not a cultural thing as claimed.
According to him, the Nigerian leader's statement was not, whatsoever, reflective of what is happening in Zamafara, Kaduna, Katsina and other parts of the country boiling with the blood of the innocent.
“Buhari and his government will never stop from amusing us with their tales by moonlight because what is happening in Zamfara, Sokoto, Katsina, Birnin Gwari, Southern Kaduna, Taraba, Plateau and others cannot be described as a cultural thing.
“President Buhari’s weak story about his conversation with President Donald Trump further confirms why his government does not care about the killings in our country by calling them cultural things.
“Just this (Tuesday) evening, I received a report from the Kaduna Baptist Conference President about the number of their members that have been killed by bandits in Kaduna State from January 2020 to date to be 105 and our President will call it a cultural thing? All we can say is may God save our Nigeria,” Hayab said.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that President Buhari lifted the lids on his response to Trump after the United States president accused his government of treating the killing Christians in Nigeria with soft gloves.
Speaking on Tuesday, September 8, during the second day of the one year retreat for ministers and top government officials, Buhari said he told Trump that the crisis between the herdsmen and farmers in Nigeria is not religious but cultural.
