The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State Chapter has stated that Nigeria has not shown decisive commitments for the genuine development of the country in all spheres of life, even at age 60.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Kaduna CAN Chairman, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, on Thursday, October 1, 2020.
His words, “We have poor leadership. The government is using nepotism in appointments and elections to offices.”
“We are still burying our citizens because of bad roads. Others are being buried on a daily basis as a result of the activities of Boko Haram, kidnapping, banditry, Fulani/farmer clashes and many other vices that have made the lives of Nigerians most vulnerable.”
The CAN Chairman, while appraising Nigeria’s 60 years of independence, stressed that the Federal Government had a lot to still do.
“They are governing without accountability while followers are living in a state of discontentment.”
He lamented that unemployment had risen to a terrifying level, making graduates roam the streets of the country aimlessly, and in so doing, have become vulnerable to all sorts of temptations in the society.
He said, “Leaders at all levels of government have woefully failed on their mandate to show true commitment to the welfare of the people.”
“Our foreign policies are not consistent with current realities. Nations having a bilateral relationship with us are not sure what we will say or do tomorrow.”
