CAN Calls for Dissolution of Boko Haram Amnesty Committee
Following the declaration of a state of emergency in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe, the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has called for the dissolution of the amnesty committee saying it was no longer relevant.
President of the umbrella body of Christians in Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media and Public Affairs, Kenny Ashaka, declaring its support for the declaration of a state of emergency in the the three northern states maintained that “with the declaration of a state of emergency in the three states, the Amnesty Committee was no longer relevant and should be dissolved.
According to him, “we are being vindicated that no reasonable agreement can be reached with terrorists. Not dissolving the political structures coupled with the retention of the office of the governors, are signposts that President Goodluck Jonathan is a democrat, and that, the action of the President is also an indication that he is primarily concerned with the issue of human rights abuses and the need to secure the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
The CAN President then called on the three governors to reciprocate the kind gesture by cooperating with those charged with the responsibility of bringing down the insurgency.
