The northern leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance in tackling insecurity.

Speaking on Sunday in Kaduna, the secretary-general of the association in the 19 northern states and the FCT, Sunday Oibe, charged the President to live up to his constitutional responsibility by protecting Nigerians and defending the sovereignty of the country.

The association revealed that they were worried about the security crisis in the country.

Oibe said: “Nigeria is under siege by terrorists who are unleashing mayhem on the citizens and crippling economic and social activities across the country, particularly in states like Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara, Niger, Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Kebbi, Sokoto and even Abuja, the seat of power.

“The continuous brazen and commando-like style, with which these terrorists operate unchallenged, even to the extent of issuing a threat to kidnap the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is worrisome.”

Oibe urged Buhari and the the national assembly to stop living in denial, insisting that nowhere is safe in Nigeria.

He insisted that necessary measures have to be put in place to stop the activities of terrorists and other criminal elements across the country.
