How Christians cause persecution of churches in Nigeria – CAN

Amadin Ogbewe



The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed disappointment in Christians for their part in the continued persecution of churches in Nigeria. 

The CAN President Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, made this known at a breakfast meeting with the Christian Press Association of Nigeria (CPAN) with the theme ‘Christian response to global persecution’ in Lagos.

Ayokunle said that Christians now lacked the boldness of Esther from the Bible who fight for her faith, claiming that this was also responsible for the persecution. 

According to him, 

“Most ‘Christians’ in politics places political advantages above the spiritual and that have contributed to the continued persecution of the church in Nigeria.”

Ayokunle also lamented Churches inability to get Certificate of Occupancy (CofO) in some parts of the north, which according to him is against the constitution of Nigeria.

He also spoke about reducing civil unrest if the Government would reduce unemployment thereby engaging the idle young population whom he said were tools for the devil. 

Ayokunle also berated the lack of unity among Christians to speak and pursue a common objective.

“The Church is so rich but cannot put resources together for a single purpose,” he said.
