The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Tuesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop complaining about the non-performance of ex-leaders, but rather to make a change while he is still in office.
The call was made by Samson Ayokunle, President of CAN while speaking at the Holy Convocation organised by the Victory Life Bible Church in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Ayokunle, who delivered a speech on the theme of the convocation: ‘The state of the nation: The way forward’, said the reason for the spate of insecurity, criminality and other vices being witnessed in the country is as a result of the inability of the president’s administration to handle the situation.
He expressed worries that criminals were being more professional than various security outfits in Nigeria.
He said: “We put you there to secure the nation; we didn’t put you there to be complaining about bad leaders.
“The criminals are behaving more professional than the regular law enforcement agents. You were complaining about past leaders; we knew that the past leaders didn’t do well and we approach you to make change.”
The country on Monday witnessed separate attacks and destruction on the facilities of law enforcement agencies as gunmen broke into the Custodial Centre in Owerri, Imo State, and freed over 1,844 inmates.
The hoodlums also burnt down police headquarters building in the state, followed by pockets of killing in the northern part of the country by armed bandits on Tuesday.
