CAN Protests Moves to List Nigeria among Muslim Nations

The Christian Association of Nigeria has protested the attempt by the current administration to enlist Nigeria among Muslim nations to fight ISIS.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia announced the formation of a coalition of 34 predominately Muslim nations to fight terrorism.

The nations includes Arab countries such as Qatar and the UAE, as well as Middle Eastern, Asian and African states including Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia and Nigeria.

In a statement by the General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake, CAN said “This singular gesture of the Buhari government betrays so much, and tends to confirm our fears that underneath everything this government is doing, there is an agenda with strong Islamic undertones, aimed at undermining Nigeria’s pluralistic character and neutrality regarding government’s affiliation to any one religion.


“While joining hands with other countries to fight ISIS is something good, our country must not be tagged as a Muslim or Arab nation. Christians must make a public statement showing their discontent on this development which portends great danger to national unity and integration.”
