Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has responded to claims by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, that the association failed to cite clear cases of abuse of constitution allegedly committed by the Muhammadu Buhari administration. The association urged Nigerians to pity Mr. Shehu, whom it said was constrained to defend ‘a bad product,’ an apparent reference to President Buhari. Reacting to comments made by CAN, through its Secretary General, Musa Asake, at a press conference on January 16, Mr. Shehu had denied claims that the current administration was enmeshed in acts tantamount to destroying Nigeria’s democracy.

In a similar development, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam JNI also in a statement by its Secretary General, Khalid Aliyu, accused CAN of destroying the cordial relationship between Christians and Muslims by persisting in its purported allegations, aimed at “destabilising the polity ahead of the 2019 general elections”. Reacting to both statements, Mr. Asake listed sections of the constitution the association believes has been abused by the administration. “Frankly speaking, Garba Shehu should be pitied with his current position because he is trying to sell a bad product and as a result he cannot do without being sycophantic. Unfortunately for him, in his bid to defend President Muhammadu Buhari, whose government’s record for nepotism, favoritism and discrimination is second to none, Shehu goofed by claiming that he could not cite any valid cases of constitutional violations. “It is apparently clear that Shehu did not read the full text of my address at the Press Conference before kicking against it otherwise, he would have kept quiet. Because in my address, I said inter alia, “…By failing to curb the attacks of the Fulani herdsmen President Buhari has failed to uphold Section 14, Para. 2 (b) in the Constitution which reads, “the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.
