Ayokunle tasks Nigerian leaders to ensure security of lives, properties

0 80

The President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle has asked Nigerian government at all levels to restore peace to the nation.

Ayokunle, in its New Year message to Nigerians personal signed, advised Nigerian leaders not to jettison efforts to address the numerous challenges facing the country in their selfish bid to secure positions for the 2023 general elections.

He lamented that criminal activities of the bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and other unscrupulous elements have made most parts of Nigeria largely unsafe.

The CAN President said that criminals have taken over the country, invading communities, markets, churches and schools killing, maiming and destroying property without much resistance or hindrance.

He enjoined all to use the opportunity of the New Year for fasting and prayers to ask God to rescue Nigeria from those who are hell bent on destroying it.

 “2021 was one year too many as a result of the ways and manners these criminals have been operating with impunity as if this is not the country we have been all these years.

“They have turned our roads into death traps where they now kidnap for money, apparently due to the poor conditions of our roads and all of a sudden kidnapping has become a big business as the innocent people are being kidnapped and ransom in millions are being demanded and paid. Families of kidnapped people are at the mercy of the criminals! Some were not even fortunate as they were killed after the ransom had been paid!

“Our security agencies have been overstretched and the best done by our government is far from being enough if we must say the truth without deceiving ourselves. The police have been parading the arrested kidnappers on the television but surprisingly, it appears as if they are too busy with their investigations to prosecute them!

“We have cried in vain for help from the developed world and the United Nations. They seem to be more occupied and busy with COVID-19 than pay attention to the daily destruction of lives going on in Nigeria.

“At this juncture, I call on all Nigerians, irrespective of their religious affiliations, to rise up and cry for the mercy of God that can preserve us and bring an end to all these pains. It appears as if our governments have got to their wit end over the menace of insecurity. Their major focus now is on the 2023 general election. Can 2023 election happen if the nation is over-run by criminals? Our nation must survive first and be at peace before election can take place.

“Except for the mercy of God to intervene divinely and miraculously, we would be like Sodom and Gomorrah. It is only God who can make the 2023 general election a reality. It is only God in His own way who can teach our leaders the right step to take. It is only God who can send us help from above. Because of the desperate situation we are in, some governors are already calling for self-defence and declaration of state of emergency! This is unprecedented.

“I call on all our denominational and church leaders to use the opportunity of the New Year fasting and prayers programme of our churches to rescue Nigeria from those who are hell bent on destroying it by deliberately praying for the mercy of God over our unfortunate situation. For the Lord our God is a merciful God. He will not leave us or allow these heartless criminals to destroy us,” Ayokunle said.
