The northern chaptr of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the federal government to re-double its efforts to solving the myriad challenges facing the country and stop the blame game it had embarked upon since coming into power in May 2015.
They said the current socio-economic hardship in the land calls for pragmatic action and not blaming past administration for the economic woes that has bedevilled the country.
The spokesman of the Northern CAN, Rev John Joseph Hayab, who spoke to our correspondent in Kaduna after its emergency meeting held in Jos, the Plateau State capital, noted that the President Muhammadu Buhari – led government must seat up to the realty of the moment.
CAN further called on the president and his team, to, as a matter of urgency, find measures to cushion the effects of the sufferings in the country.
According to the spokesman, “We feel strongly that there is never a time in Nigeria that we need to join hands to unite with all section of Nigeria to address the challenges of Nigeria. Nigerians are suffering. There is hunger all over the country. There is pain in everywhere.”
“Government must live up to her responsibility and do what is right because if government do not do that, then she is putting her citizenry in danger.
“So, we are calling on government to find measures to cushion the effects of the suffering in the country.
“We also call on government to stop the blame game. All we realise today is that government does not tackle issues but dwell on blame game. This blame game cannot solve the problem. Government should sit up and address issues,” they said.
