Leaders of the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) today gave a final warning to President Goodluck Jonathan put an end to the insecurity in the country or face down the the consequences.

Speaking through its president, Reverend Ayo Oristejafor at a press briefing after a high level meeting of the body in Abuja, CAN charged Mr. Jonathan to find a lasting solution to the senseless killings and bombings in the country.


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) – the umbrella body of all Christians in Nigeria – has since its inception embraced dialogue as the primary form of resolution to disruptions in general and religious crisis in particular. Historical records will show that CAN has taken its stand at the forefront of the platforms of religious dialogue to promote peaceful conflict resolution from the inception of our nation. This position was stoically maintained at great costs to the Christian community as we chose to bear the burden of being the victimized rather than stoke the fires of disaffection in Nigeria.
