CAN Hails Recorded Successes Against Boko Haram, Urges Christians To Back Buhari With Prayers


The Plateau State chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari on recorded successes in the fight against insurgency and called on all Christians to support his efforts with prayers.

The Plateau CAN Chairman, Soja Bewarang, who gave the commendation when he visited some internally displaced persons (IDPs) at the Zang Commercial Secondary School in Bukuru, Jos, on Monday, said the success against insurgency, if sustained, will encourage all the displaced persons to return to their homes.

Bewarang, however, said the federal government must not rely on guns to win the war but find ways of de-radicalising and educating the insurgents against violence.

The CAN chairman, who sympathised with the Muslim Ummah in Plateau State over the recent fire outbreak at the Jos Central Mosque, prayed that God would provide the funds to rebuilt the burnt sections.
