The Katsina state Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Nelson Onyekachukwu has blamed insecurity in Nigeria on disgruntled politicians.
In his sermon at the Church of Resurrection in Nigeria in Katsina, Onyekachukwu said that the security challenge threatening the country has nothing to do with religion.
“It is not the issue of a Muslim or Christian that is behind the inhuman act.
“The insecurity is caused by some people who are aggrieved and have not satisfied their selfish interests,’’ he claimed.
He therefore called on Christians to embark on prayer sessions for the senseless killings to end.
“We believe in the power of prayers to solve problems and we believe that anything that has a beginning will have an end,” he said.
Explaining the essence of Christmas, the CAN chairman said that Christians were celebrating Christmas so as to remember the birth of Jesus Christ.
“It is a day set aside for all Christians all over the world to remember the birth of Jesus Christ.
“The Christians have been directed to celebrate the Christmas by sharing gifts and assisting the less privileged,” he explained.
