Group Frowns At CAN Over Attempt to Undermine DSS, Urges Clerics To Promote Peace Among Nigerians

Save Nigeria Movement (SNM)  has enjoined CAN to immediately offer apologies to Nigerians over attempt by its vice president North to undermine the DSS just as it urged Nigerians to remain focused and determined to abide by the way of peace and unity at all times

The group in a statement, expressed concern over the conduct of some religious leaders who aimed at breaching the peace in the country.

The Civil Society  group particularly frowned at a statement credited to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and signed by it's Vice President (North) , which casted aspersions on DSS for alerting Nigerians on the ploy by certain elements to create crisis using religious platforms ahead of 2023 politics.

It noted: "We can excuse individual religious leaders for holding their views, even if they do so with obvious reasons that threaten national security, but we can not excuse same when it becomes obvious that it's an agenda for a certain group to cause civil disorder using established platforms such as CAN. I am afraid ladies and gentlemen, this is what CAN is doing at the moment.
"The body of Christ in Nigeria has never been muzzled. If there was any urge to do that, a lot of religious leaders would not be free today.  we expect that religious leaders would use their platforms to preach and promote peace rather than inflame passions and discredit security agencies."
