Nigeria: CAN Calls On Federal Government To Address The Demands Of The Youths


The Christian Association of Nigeria has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the agitations of the youth demanding good governance in the country.

Recall that a few weeks ago, the youths marched out into the streets to demand better governance and an end to police brutality, leading to the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police.

CAN National President, Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, who spoke in Akure,Ondo capital said the youth remained the pillar of the country.

Ayokunle also added that the youth have also woken up to the reality that the country is in need of good leadership to restore the economy and provide employment opportunities.

He said, “I want the government not to trivialise the voice of the youth but to ensure and work assiduously and make concrete plans for them in the developmental program of the country especially in creating an enabling environment for employment for the youth”

“With the way they have spoken, I also want to advise the youth to be patient because Rome was not built in a day. They also need to allow the government to have space to rejigged things and make plans for them.”

While encouraging the nation to be steadfast in their prayers for a better country, Ayokunle said, “If any year is good, we need to praise Him and if otherwise, we need to talk to Him the more on the need to make the year better for us.

“The situation of the country has shown to us that power belongs to Him and not to us. Any good we receive is not because we merit it.”
