Christian Association of Nigeria Frowns At President Buhari's Statistics on Boko Haram

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has debunked President Muhammad Buhari's claim that 90% of Boko Haram targets are Muslims and not Christians.

This is according to a statement issued by CAN's Director of legal and public affairs, Kwamkur Samuel.

Recall that President Muhammad in an Op-Ed published in a United States-based magazine, in tribute to late pastor Lawal Andi, disagreed with the statement that Christians were the target of Boko Haram.

The president says his administration, since inception in 2015, has not relented in fighting insurgents and urged Nigerians to see the insurgency as a common enemy that Nigerians must team up to fight collectively.

In reaction to the president's statement, CAN urged the president not to play international politics with the lives of his citizens. The association emphasized that the Federal Government should be concerned about the insurgency and not the statistics of victims.

The Christians' body went further to state that it was disappointing to hear the number one citizen of the country justifying which of the two major religions was suffering more from the terrorists' attacks.
