State of Nation: Group slams CAN, PFN over stance on Adeboye

State of Nation: Group slams CAN, PFN over stance on Adeboye

A group, Impact Future Nigeria, has slammed the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) for what it termed shielding the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, from blame in the killings of Christians and general insecurity in the country.

In a statement, Thursday, signed by Convener of Impact Future Nigeria, May Ubeku, the group alleged that CAN kept mute over an alleged attack the group suffered when they staged a peaceful protest to RCCG’s headquarters in Lagos on Monday.

According to the group, the Christian bodies, rather than condemn the act, focused on exonerating Adeboye that CAN itself had accused of being silent on the plight of Nigerian Christians under the current administration.

The group frowned at both CAN and PFN for not condemning Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) mounted to block the protesters, adding that the more than 30 heavily armed mobile policemen deployed to stop the protesters during the peaceful  match should have rather being the focus and source of condemnation than a knee jerks press release that amounted to doublespeak.

“Very unfortunate that people protesting against the current state of heightened insecurity and uncertainty with regards to the Islamization of Nigeria , RUGA and general killings could rather be described as ‘secular’ (by CAN) as if they have no legitimate right to call out people complicit in the current sorry state of affairs.

“The nation at large is in trouble today looking at the fact that survival and existence as humans is at stake. The lives of our children, loved ones and those of generations yet unborn, are currently being threatened by the current Islamization threats and killings.

“This current circumstance has raised concerns and gotten everyone, including State Governors, Traditional Rulers various socio-political groups including Ohaneze Ndigbo, Afenifere, PANDEF and other groups condemning the government’s poor handling of various national tragedies,” the statement read.

The group reminded both CAN and PFN of its press statement issued by Dr. Joseph Ajujungwa, Secretary of CAN, in the 17 Southern States with an instruction for everyone to defend himself, saying, “As CAN, we will preach it from our pulpit, every Imam should peach from the mosque and the traditionalists should stand against it; nobody should relent; no land should be given; any traditional ruler that does that should be dethroned.”

The group pointed out that the same “Adeboye who in 2014 planned a one million man match against the then President Goodluck Jonathan would now say he has been praying and CAN would fall for such cheap gimmick.”
It accused both CAN and PFN of “politicizing insecurity and the plight of Christians alleging that “because something must have exchanged hands”. It noted that “the Vice President is a senior pastor in RCCG meaning Adeboye can now eat his words.”
The group enjoined both CAN and PFN to suspend Adeboye from being a member of the two groups and all Christian bodies.

It could be recalled some Christian groups had last Monday staged peaceful protest to RCCG’s redemption camp where they delivered a letter to Adeboye.
The protest was attended by PFN and members such as Charles Oputa popularly called Charley Boy, Baba Fryo, Pastor Goodie Goodie, Eadris Aldukareem and students in solidarity support with the Christian groups.
