The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said that Nigeria should await the repercussions of joining the Saudi Arabia-led coalition against terrorism, saying that it had earlier warned that such plans had ulterior Islamic motive.
Sunday Oibe of the youth wing of Northern CAN, said that Nigerians and church were warned about the negative impact of joining such a coalition but jettisoned it.
He spoke at Iffe in Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State during the enthronement of Rt Rev Jacob Ibikunle as the Bishop of Okun Diocese.
“So, what do you want CAN to do in this circumstances? Every choice we make in life has a reward. When the Israelites wanted a king despite all warning, they went ahead and made a choice and so we have made a choice; may we enjoy the sweetness of our choice”, he stated.
Only on Sunday, Prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Uche, alleged ‘grand plan’ by President Muhammadu Buhari to turn Nigeria into an Islamic state.
“We are closely watching this government because we are aware there is a game plan to islamise Nigeria and they are using the Fulani herdsmen to initiate it before they fully launch it out.
“But I tell you there is going to be serious resistance from Christians. If they think they can use the Fulanis to exterminate us, then they have failed. Look at what is happening in Benue State and all over Nigeria, the herdsmen will just invade a community and wipe out every living creature there before they set the place ablaze. In fact, the issue of Fulani herdsmen is now worse than Boko Haram”, he stated.
