Nigeria’s Problem Is That Citizens Don’t Fear God – Oritsejafor

Post by SKOOKID on Tue Aug 06, 2013 9:28 pm

The National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Ayo Oritsejafor, has appealed to political office holders in Nigeria to desist from overheating the polity so as to achieve peaceful coexistence and national development for the benefit of humanity.

The CAN President, Mr. Oritsejafor, made the plea
on Tuesday at the Assemblies Of God Church in Jos,
Plateau State, as he toured the six geopolitical zones
of the country to urge Christians and leaders to pray
harder for harmonious co-existence of Nigerians
irrespective of religious and (geo)political difference.

"I urge the church to pray for Nigeria. Let's raise the
standard for this country. The Church needs to
remain one so that its prayer can be effective," said
Mr. Oritsejafor.

The CAN President attributed most predicaments and challenges in Nigeria to absence of the fear of

"The problem with Nigeria is that, we don't fear
God….you can't take another man's life if you fear
God," he said.

He decried the level of corruption in Nigeria, and
touched on various levels of decadence in the

"There is money you mustn't touch. How do you
seize a pensioner's money and be able to go home
and sleep. Some people are dying of malaria, in
childbirth and people are jetting abroad to check
for headache," he said.

The cleric urged Nigerians not to be discouraged in
spite of terrorist attacks and political troubles facing
the country.

"Don't be discouraged' don't judge. God has ability
to perform what no one can expect… God who
brings water out of rock is still alive, and can heal
Nigeria of its problems," he said.

On the section 29 (4b) of the constitution which
pegs females who are married to be adults
regardless of their age and the ongoing child
marriage debate that has generated a furore across
the country, Mr. Oritsejafor said that CAN was not in
support of the clause as voted by some senators .

"CAN is totally against child marriage, it must be
reversed," said the cleric.

The CAN president, while speaking with journalists
shortly after the church service, expressed worry
over unabated attacks on innocent Nigerians by
suspected Boko-Haram terrorist.

"When I see what happens to the Church, especially
in the North, I'm troubled," he said.

He, however, commended the efforts of Nigerian
security officials for restoring relative peace in some
part of the country.

Mr. Oritsejafor paid a courtesy visit on the Governor
of Plateau State, Jonah Jang. And despite the
increasing waves of attacks in Jos, the CAN
administrator said Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau
State had done well as regard calming the storm in
his troubled Plateau State.

"Governor Jonah Jang has done well. May God
continue to be with him so that he can keep uniting
this state," he said.

The cleric also sympathized with residents of
Plateau State for the series of civil unrest that
bedevils the state leading to death of thousands in
the past few years.
