‘CAN Leaders Display Lack Of Readiness To Coexist With Nigerian Muslims’, Says Muslim Group
A group, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has accused the leadership of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), of displaying attitudes that disagree with the coexistence of Nigerian muslims in the country.
In a press statement signed by its President, Professor Ishaq Akintola, the group alleged that the leadership of CAN want the country for themselves only.
“They have refused to listen to the voice of reason. The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, himself a pastor, told CAN that the allegation of Islamisation is an illusion. CAN refused to listen. Femi Falana asked CAN to Christianise Nigeria instead of alleging Islamisation everyday but CAN will not listen,” the statement read.
Reacting to CAN’s latest demand that National Assembly should compile a list of all organizations that Nigeria belongs to and all the treaties signed with a view to dropping the religious ones, MURIC describes it as “hallucinating. It is laughable, untenable, kindergarten and quixotic.”
According to the group, “CAN is manifesting symptoms of orubebemantis.”
MURIC however warned the National Assembly to ignore CAN’s call for its intervention.
“Nonetheless, should the NASS show any interest in CAN’s demand, it should beam its floodlight on all Western oriented international organizations like the United Nations (UN) as they have always been used as tools in the hands of Western crusaders while their religious bias is always hidden,” MURIC said.
