The President of Tarayyar Ekklisiyoyin Kristi a Nijeriya, (TEKAN) which has a fellowship of about 30million members from over 15 denominational Churches Rev. Dr. Caleb Ahima has warn that the defenseless Nigerian Christians may be tempted to use whatever means to defend themselves since the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari has fails to fulfill it responsibility and chooses to turn the blind eye on the atrocities of herdsmen killing innocent Christians.
“It is the duty of President Buhari to preserve the lives of the citizenry. It is the responsibility of Federal Government to maintain law and order and that is what this government has fail to do”.
Ahima said President Buhari must be reminded of his Constitutional responsibility of protecting all Nigerians lives and property without any regards to creed or ethnicity.
“TEKAN Leadership will always speak out without fear where Christians are being attacked. We must call on President Buhari to fulfill his constitutional responsibility to all Citizens”.
The TEKAN President stated this while delivering his speech during the 63rd General Assembly of TEKAN with the theme; “The Church in times like this, 2 Timothy 3:1-5”. Relocated from Jos Headquarters and Held at the Headquarters of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ ERCC Akwanga.
“The so called herdsmen have traumatized innocent and defenseless Nigerians Christians, the killings of innocent blood in Adamawa, Southern Kaduna, Taraba and Benue States recently is satanic, barbaric and condemnable. the world is appalled and watching keenly, expecting to see justice delivered to the perpetrators of this evil, who unfortunately seem to have defied even the country’s law enforcement Agencies even with recorded bravery in surmounting certain enemies out her own territory”.
He advised President Muhammadu Buhari as the head of the Federal Government to be reminded of his constitutional responsibility of protecting all Nigerian lives and property and this without any regards to creed or ethnicity.
“Where Government either fails to fulfil her responsibility of chooses to turn the blind eye toward these atrocities, the danger is that defenseless Nigerians may be tempted to use whatever means to defend themselves, with the attending possibility of degenerating into anarchy”.
According to him Nigerian government must not forget that it was largely the same kind of situation that created warlords and the sad and bloody tells of war and death in Somalia.
” Nigerians are yet to have records of arrest and prosecution of these marauding and devastating attackers, even with the out-cries that keep ringing out from innocent blood Nigerians”.
The clergy however appeal to all Christians Leaders of TEKAN to ensure that all their members of eligible age are registered and issued their voters card, saying it is a step for actualizing the dreams of the church in putting God Fearing government that will enthrone Christ as lord over the Nation.
