Christian groups under the auspices of Conclave of Christian Organizations have lamented that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is at war with the Church, owing to targeted killings and lop-sided appointments.
The emotions of the groups were conveyed in a press release signed by its Coordinator, Rev. Ayuba Kantiok over the weekend in Abuja, after an amalgamated meeting held at the National Ecumenical Centre.
Highlighting Leah Sharibu’s continuous captivity, the group said the teenager has been left in the hands of terrorists because she is a Christian.
“Today the government is saying nothing about her. The Buhari Regime and the Yobe State Government who have interacted with the terrorists and secured the release of the Muslim girls continue to insult our sensitivity and dignity by doing nothing to secure the release of Leah.
“There is no single Christian heading any of the Federal Security Forces. The Chief of Army Staff is a Muslim, Chief of Naval Staff, a Muslim, Chief of Air Staff, Muslim, the Inspector General of Police, a Muslim, Controller General of Custom, a Muslim, Controller General of Immigration, a Muslims, Controller General of Prison, a Muslim, Commandant General of Civil Defense, a Muslim, Director General of National Intelligent Agency, a Muslim, National Security Adviser, a Muslim, Director General of Department of State Security (DSS), a Muslim, the Minister of Defence, Muslim Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), a Muslim. Also, the Controller General of Fire Service and the Director General of National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) are all Muslims,” it added.
The group further lamented that “machinery of governance in Nigeria have been practically handed over to Jihadist who decides the suitability of those to be employed or be appointed into federal services. The criteria and prerequisite is you must be a Muslim who will support the Fulani agenda”.
Going forward, the groups urged president Buhari to ensure “the reorganization of the security forces of Nigeria to reflect equal appointment of Christians and Muslims as service chiefs and heads of security organization.
“The removal of Sheik. Ali Pantami as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria he lacks the moral requirement to continue to serve as a minister because of his link with the American terrorism watch list.
“The termination of the appointment of the acting Inspector general of Police which further contradicts the federal character provision of the 1999 constitution of Nigeria.
“The national peace committee under the chairmanship of General Abdulsalami Abubakar should as matter of urgency called general Buhari government to order so that he can balance his appointments by incorporating Christians into the security leadership of the country. Because this is causing serious tension fear and suspicion in the country.
