Zamfara Massacre – CAN Blast Buhari for Failing to Protect Citizens.
The northern chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for the killing of more than 200 persons in Zamfara State last week, claiming that the administration had failed to safeguard Nigerians in the region.
During a national prayer session organized by Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Saturday, Buhari expressed his condemnation for the Zamfara massacre and stated that the government was unwavering in its efforts to address the challenges.
He also stated that Nigeria required divine intervention to put an end to the Boko Haram insurgency, banditry, and other social vices that were attacking the nation.

“There is a need to seek divine intervention for the Almighty to bring an end to the challenges, ” the President said.
According to a statement issued on Sunday by Rev. Joseph Hayab, CAN Vice- President for the Northern area, Buhari has failed to live up to his pledges, and the organization questions whether such promises were made solely to appease Nigerians with no expectation of them being kept.
The group said, ” Between January and December 2021, about 9, 196 people were killed, 3, 857 Nigerians were kidnapped. Of these, about 70 per cent of the victims are from the North including the President’s home state of Katsina where the governor has asked citizens to buy arms to protect themselves. This is an admission of failure.

“The call for a state of emergency in the North- East cannot be over emphasized.
“But sadly, the body language of Mr President and those surrounding him does not show they care and expecting them to declare a state of emergency is a wasted appeal because nothing about them shows they care, “the statement said.

“It is sad that this is what Nigerians now face daily. We commiserate with the victims. The Buhari government lacks the capacity to do anything. There are terror apologists in the APC and the government knows them. In 2015, they imported foreign terrorists into the country for the purpose of gaining power. “
He continued, that “Governance has fallen in many states today in northern Nigeria and the Federal Government needs to do something urgently before the worst will happen. “
