The National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Ayokunle Olasupo, has accused the President Mohammadu Buhari administration of incompetency in the handling of the insecurity situation in the country.

The Christian Association President made this known at the Holy Convocation organised by the Victory Life Bible Church, in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

Rev. Olasupo who spoke on the theme, ‘The State Of The Nation: The Way Forward’, hinted that the present administration is religiously biased.

The CAN president added that insecurity and other vices being witnessed in the country was as a result of negligence on the part of the Buhari’s administration.

He noted that the current administration had taken time, faulting the past administration whereas it has failed in bringing different ethic and religious groups in the country in unison.

Rev. Olasupo who also worried about the spate of insecurity and criminality in the country, lamented that criminals are being more professional than various security outfits in Nigeria.

He said “We put you there to secure the nation, we didn’t put you there to be complaining about bad leaders.

“The criminals are behaving more professional than the regular law enforcement agents. You were complaining about past leaders, we knew that the past leaders didn’t do well and we approach you to make change.

“Who’s is afraid and for what are you afraid of, especially when we have seen you do it at the national level and you are incompetent. We cannot continue like this” He concluded

He pointed in the Buhari’s administration is what he describes as “lopsided appointment of security heads.

The CAN president informed that the recent appointments of security heads by the President was lopsided along ethnic and religious group.

He also described the appointment as a deliberate attempt by the government to put a particular ethnic and religious group in an important position of decision making while others would be subjected.

“The appointment was lopsided along ethnic and religious group and each time we accuse the Government, they will say we are attacking Muslims. We are only accusing the government. I wonder if they are working with the government not they are collaborators. The Muslims have always disrespected us by attacking us. We have never ever accused the Muslim group of anything.

“The appointment is also a deliberate attempt by the government to put a particular ethnic and religious group in an important position of decision making while others will be put under them” He concluded
