Northern CAN Condemns 3-Month Ultimatum On Igbos


BY AMOS TAUNA, KADUNA – The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in 19 Northern States and Abuja, on Wednesday expressed shock with the recent press conference organized by Northern youths urging Igbos to leave the region within three months.

A statement signed and issued to newsmen in Kaduna  by its Publicity Secretary,  Rev. Joseph John Hayab, noted, “It is very to read what some shortsighted and ignorant group from our region are calling on Igbos to leave the North before October. Such call is evil and a threat to national security and unity.

“Leaders of this group and their sponsors should be arrested and prosecuted immediately. If we may ask, Which North do they claimed to be speaking for and making these evil threat? We are Northerners and cannot recall any meeting where such decision was taken and we will never support or encourage anyone to champion such evil idea.

“What our country need today is unity for progress not threat from people who don’t know and understand the positive contributions and sacrifice our parents and many people have made to keep this country united to this level. The police should arrest them now without delay. They are not representing the North but some enemies of Nigeria.

“We are appealing to peace loving Northerners irrespective of tribe and religion to come out to condemn and disassociate themselves from this group that want to plunge this nation into confusion.

“CAN in the 19 Northern States and Abuja is calling on her members not to accept this evil calls but be loving to all Nigerians from all regions and faith as enjoin from the Bible “Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be call sons of God.”
