‘They tried to prevent us from visiting the president’ – CAN Leader, Samson Ayokunle

CAN talks meeting wit Buhari

Rev. Samson Ayokunle, the President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has revealed how people who tagged as saboteurs attempted to prevent the association from visiting the President to congratulate him.

While speaking with State House correspondents Ayokunle said;

“Saboteurs didn’t want us to come here (Aso Rock); we are old enough to know what to do and what not to do. If somebody like me after 60 years of age will be under pressure, then it means that my life will never have meaning again.

But by the grace of God we have a meaningful life, I know what to do. By God’s grace, He has prepared me well for this assignment. So, those detractors and politicians in cassock should go and find better job to do.’’ He said.

The CAN leader revealed that CAN leadership was in the villa, to congratulate the president and remind him of what Nigerians were yearning for, which is to perform better.

He, therefore, advised the president to consider only the best Nigerians while constituting his new cabinet, stressing that he should do more to address socio-economic challenges facing the citizens.

“Now, he has mastered the job; he has mustered enough strength to be able to go full swing into action. We want him to do more on security- kidnappings almost everywhere and the issue of insurgency in the northeast; the insurgents should be silenced once and for all.

“These ethnic militias that have now moved to the northwest which used to be peaceful and they are now causing violence there – before they grow wings, their wings should be clipped completely,’’ he said.
