2. Security

In Nigeria, rising insecurity has become the order of the day. In fact, no day passes without reports of kidnapping, banditry, robbery, murder and wanton killings.

More worrying is the fact that the Buhari-led APC government is yet to tackle rising insecurity in spite of huge resources being injected into the defense sector.

The leadership of CAN is worried hence they are demanding the security of lives and properties of not only Christians but all Nigerians, going forward.

3. Opportunities for Citizens

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria is seeking greater opportunities for Nigerians so as to curb the rising case of unemployment in the country and also tackle the high level of poverty and crime rate in Nigeria.

This is one of the demands the Christain leadership tabled before Atiku in Abuja today.
