The Youth Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria, (YOWICAN) has expressed disappointment with President Goodluck Jonathan over his inability to halt the daily killing of Nigerians in the North-Eastern part of the country by members of the Boko Haram sect.
Chairman of the association in the North-central zone, Engr. Dan Kadzai made the assertion while answering questions from newsmen in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital at the weekend.
Kadzai, who berated the President for shifting his attention to the 2015 general election while the country is on fire, maintained that those engaged in electioneering campaigns this mournful moment for helpless and innocent Nigerians, were heartless politicians who must account for every live lost as a result of their actions or inactions in the hereafter.
He warned that the youths would resist further political campaigns by politicians especially in the North-Eastern part of the country, declaring that there would be no election if efforts were not intensified by concerned authorities to restore permanent peace in the affected areas before 2015.
“The President had, on several occasions assured of his commitment to bring an end to activities of insurgents but unfortunately, it has been an empty promise. He has sinned against God and humanity because the Holy Bible tells us that promise and fail is a sin. Jonathan has failed this country.”
The youth CAN chairman was dismayed that several months after the abduction of Chibok girls in Borno State by insurgents, the innocent students were yet to be rescued as consistently promised by the President, pointing out that more towns were rather being captured by the enemies on the watchful eyes of the federal government.
He declared that Nigeria was no longer safe for any activities despite Jonathan’s pledge to make it a country that the future generation would be proud of, questioning that “If an internal problem can hold the country to ransom, what becomes of it if it is an external problem?”
According to him, “As I speak to you, about six local government areas of Adamawa, that is; Madagali, Michika, Mubi, Maiha, Hong and Gombi have been taken over by these insurgents and our politicians are busy campaigning for 2015. This is disheartening and unacceptable” Kadzai maintained.
