The Advocates for Freedom and Democracy wishes to draw the attention of well-meaning Nigerians, Diplomatic agencies and global community to the activities of frontline Islamic leaders and organizations, who seek opportunities, to ignite sectarian strife in Nigeria. It is saddening to recall how past activities and utterances emboldened and compounded Boko haram and rendered efforts at national consensus difficult. Indeed, it berthed the Fulani herdsmen phenomenon. These leaders had justified and ascribed the hate-induced ideologically-inspired activities of Boko haram religious deviants as poverty induced.


The Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) is worried at the resurfacing of long queues at filling stations in Nigeria  after several increase in fuel price to ensure the availability of the product to all citizens in recent past.

 

We are not only so concerned that this seeming artificial scarcity is happening mostly during Christmas period but we are disturbed that everything is looking like an attempt to deliberately sabotage the celebration of Christmas by the Christians. 

The Attack by Fulani herdsmen yesterday was a reprisal attack to what happened last two weeks in Shafaron Village of Numan Adamawa State. Last week information came to the people about the incoming of several Fulani and foreigners into the state and believed to have been camped around Mayo Belwa.

It is now clear that if Christians do not organize to actively participate in Governance, the instrument of the State shall be used to progressively decimate the Church until Christianity is eventually “eradicated in all its forms and ramifications” in Nigeria. To avoid this calamity from coming to pass, the NCEF advises all Christians as follows:
