What exactly is wrong with the Christian Association of Nigeria “CAN” today? Their verbal hostility and paranoia keeps escalate every passing day. It is like an army of demons have ceased its leadership.
Everyday that passes, they invent something silly and sinister to accused Muslims of. This time they are accusing Justice Kutigi of religious bias because he appointed a catholic Bishop (Felix Ajakaiye) to co-chair the committee on religion. Their argument is that only a CAN delegates should represent Christians and Kutigi is bias against Christians for appointing a Bishop instead of their anointed trouble marker. If a Bishop is not eligible to speak for Christians, who then can?
In a National Conference where about 70% of delegates are Christians, CAN is still screaming Islamic bias. If CAN could scream blue murder because of membership of a sub-committee, I am sure they would have gone to war had it been the delegation of Muslims where even up to 40%.
Blackmail is a typical Oritsejafor’s CAN MO.
Few weeks ago, CAN accused Vice President Sambo of wanting to Islamise Nigeria because he chaired a meeting where it was RECOMMENDED that cattle grazing route be created for Fulani herdsmen to prevent future crisis with farmers. He said it was a grand plan to create Islamic emirates across southern Nigeria. He uncovered this grand “evil” design from just a recommendation.
The following week, the same CAN accused the Sultan and NSCIA Leaders of attempting to polarise the country across religious line and undermine the National Conference because the Muslim Leaders complained to the President that Muslims are not fairly represented in the conference.
Tomorrow is another week, I wonder who they will blackmail.
Oritsejafor should stop giving us the impression that CAN is being run from a beer parlour. And he should be admonished and reminded that CAN is suppose to be a religious body and we expect a certain level of decency from them.
We admonish Oritsejafor to stop causing problems with his uneducated accusations that lacks merits. Jesus Christ taught tolerance, humility and goodness and he wasn’t the type that goes to the market place to shout like Oritsejafor and co are doing today with their series of unfounded accusations.
