From Lawal Sa’idu Funtua, Katsina
The Katsina state Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Nelson Onyekachukwu, yesterday blamed disgruntled politicians for the country’s insecurity.
Onyekachukwu stated this during his sermon at the Church of Resurrection in Nigeria, in Katsina.
According to him, the security challenge threatening the country is not a religious affair as it affects both Muslims and Christians.
“It is not the issue of a Muslim or Christian that is behind the inhuman act.
“The insecurity is caused by some people who are aggrieved and have not satisfied their selfish interests,’’ he said.
The chairman said that the unwanted senseless killings are being sponsored by the aggrieved people, but nobody knows where they came from.
Onyekachukwu called on Christians to embark on prayer sessions for the senseless killings to end.
“We believe in the power of prayers to solve problems and we believe that anything that has a beginning will have an end,” he said.
He noted that Christians were celebrating Christmas so as to remember the birth of Jesus Christ.
“It is a day set aside for all Christians all over the world to remember the birth of Jesus Christ.
“The Christians have been directed to celebrate the Christmas, by sharing gifts and assisting the less-privileged,” he said.
