More reactions are still trailing the former President Obasanjo’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, on the current security situation in the country, with the Christian Association of Nigeria describing the action as timely.
President of the Association, Reverend Samson Ayokunle, at a news conference in Abuja, advised President Buhari to scrutinise the contents of the letter and curb the insecurity in the country, which he said informed the letter in the first place.
Reverend Ayokunle cited the security situation in Taraba state, for instance where the Vice President of CAN, Reverend Caleb Ahima, could not travel out of his parish without military protection, noting that the state was under siege.
He dismissed alleged demonisation of the Fulani ethnic group by other Nigerians, noting that the average Fulani man had always lived in peace with other citizens.
