Only ‘dependable’ Tinubu can end terrorism in Nigeria- CAN



The Lagos State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says only the enthronement of a good leader like Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will end terrorism in the country.

The association’s chairman, Stephen Adegbite, spoke to journalists on the sidelines of the state’s Christmas Carol at the Christ the Light Chapel, Alausa, on Wednesday.

According to him, citizens want peace in Nigeria and it is somebody of the calibre of Mr Tinubu that can muster the political will to fight terrorism to stand still.

“His antecedents over the years as a public officer and freedom fighter had portrayed him to be patriotic and dependable nationalist,” he said.

Mr Adegbite added, “We need a leader that is capable of using other means, aside from military, to quell the crises that had resulted in human carnage in parts of the country.”

He said Nigerians had an ample opportunity in the coming election to put in the position of authority, leaders that could bring Nigeria of their dreams to reality.

The bishop, who had led teams to offer palliatives to the Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps in the northern part of the country where terrorist attacks were a regular feature, expressed dismay at the havoc in the area.

The Lagos preacher described terrorism and insurgency as whirlwinds that blew no one any good and called on Nigerians to come out en masse to vote for credible persons at the polls.

The CAN boss, sympathetic to the APC’s presidential candidate, said Christians in Lagos supported the ruling party’s standard bearer.

He called on the Nigerian youths to make their voice heard in the elections by partaking in the process.

Mr Adegbite advised the younger ones not to stand aloof but allow those that could create the needed job to absorb them into the position of authority.

He said that Lagos CAN had been vocal in matters affecting the people and would continue to do so to lead the people well.
