National President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor

As a result of the rampant attacks being suffered by innocent Nigerians especially in the Northern states (particularly in Jos) and the seeming inability of the law enforcement agencies to either bring the murderers to book or to provide citizens with the necessary protection and security. The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Presidency to allow every man arm themselves.
The statement made by the national president of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor read:

“we urge the president, as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, to stop the orgy of ethnic cleansing or accede to recent calls for all Nigerians to carry arms.”

Stating that the killing of innocent villagers could not assuage electoral disadvantages, Oritsejafor added that if the president could no longer guarantee the safety of life and property of Nigerians, in accordance with the oath he took, then the National Assembly should immediately enact a law that would make every Nigerian to carry arms for their own protection.

“As a nation, we cannot continue like this. There has to be a genuine demonstration of commitment to the collective development of the country, through honesty of purpose. The current orgy of violent ethnic crises has continued unabated for several days, just a few days after the president had identified the people behind the growing spate of terrorism in the country,” the statement said.

Have you ever found CAN to be reasonable? But you'd be surprised the kind of support this idea would receive from Nigerians, both Muslims and Christians. The people are tired of the government's inability to protect them.

I have never; and it seems they will (or can?) never be reasonable. This, in particular, sounds too un-Christianly than any other comment made to the public by them. And yes, there are a lot of praising remarks from some deluded Christians after this gaffe. I am yet to see any fellow Muslim doing the same, sincerely.

This call is akin to calling for the breakage of the country as one. May God have mercy on us.
