Boko Haram: CAN Demands NSA, Defence Minister’s Resignation

Aliyu Gusau-DasukiThe Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has decried recent violent attacks carried out by members of the Boko Haram sect on Christians and churches in Adamawa and a motor park in Gombe State and called for the resignation of the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) and Minister of Defence, Gen. Aliyu Gusau (retd).

While the attack in Adamawa State was said to have also affected civilians, police stations, prisons and military formations in different parts of the state, the bomb explosion at the Gombe Motor Park reportedly killed over 30 persons and left several others injured.

CAN, therefore, wondered why Messrs Dasuki and Gusau “have not voluntarily resigned their appointments for poor coordination of relevant agencies to tackle the security challenges in the North East region of the country despite the huge budgetary allocations for the purpose”.

The General Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake, in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja, stressed that the recent insurgency in the North Eastern part of the country had avidly confirmed the association’s position all along that “the Islamic group has no other mission than to annihilate all Christians in the region and install an Islamic regime”.

Northern muslim should not be incharge of any soldiers again. they are Boko helpers. Nigeria must b one. instead of allowing them to remove u n used the oil money to sponsor jihad all over the world. use that money to keep Nigeria one. no amount of money spent to cube terrorism that is too much. boko haram are still in few states ,do this now b4 they escalate to other states. God b with u PDP and NIGERIA. that is my observation ,I am not a politician .if Igbos could not tear Nigeria Northerners will not tear it likewise. we are Brothers. a word 4 u.
