The Christian Association of Nigeria has warned the Federal Government not to ignore the security alert issued by the United States and the United Kingdom Governments.
CAN made this known in a statement signed by the Executive Secretary of the religious body, Reverend Yakubu Pam. in Gombe State on Monday.
He said that the association might not have access to such a high-level security report as the President, Major Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), but as a concerned citizen, CAN is also worried about the warning from the U.S. government.
“I am not a security expert, my job is to ensure peaceful coexistence however you can not do this without listening to security experts and intelligence of different communities in the world. Whatever they have said is subject to consideration by the Nigerian Government and they should make sure that they take certain actions on what they have said,” he said.
As the general election in 2023 draws near, Yakubu acknowledged that the nation is facing some serious challenges and called Christians to pray for the country and be more security-conscious.
