Put an end to abduction of Christian girls by Emirs, CAN tells Buhari

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday asked President Buhari to help put an end to the abduction and marriage of young Christian girls to traditional rulers and Emirs in the North.

The religious leaders made the call during a visit to the pr‎esidential villa. Speaking to state house correspondents after the visit, the Northern CAN Chairman, Yakubu Pam‎ said;


 “We came to present ourselves as the Northern CAN chapter to the President and to tell him some of the challenges that Northern Christians are passing through. One of those challenges is that we are having difficulties in expressing our faith in the northern part of the country. We have also told him some of the difficulties we are passing through with the Fulani herdsmen. The farmers need to be protected and in fact, we told the President that we have been encouraging our youths to go into farming and they need to be protected and when they come into the city, there is no employment; that is why farmers must be protected. We also talked on the issue of girl child abduction in the North. In some Northern states, some young girls and children are being abducted at 12 years old and the parents will just hear that the girls have been married to traditional rulers and emirs. This is gathering a cloud of crisis already and if that is not taken care of it will lead to a serious crisis. These are the issues we told the President. We congratulated him on the wedding of his daughter, the fight against corruption and Boko Haram war as people have started returning to their homes; as well on the return of the Chibok girls” he said

Religious intolerance,fulani herdsmen attack are ripe in the north, that I know but this abduction of Christian girls to be married off to emirs is news to me.Theres a limit where patience will reach and anarchy sets in.
Was thinking Buhari would use his victory at the polls to unite the nation and put the "religious bigot" name he's earned from haters to rest. But nah! He keeps proving em right
2019 is so pregnant with possibilities

Finally, the unveiling of missing? Chibok girls solved.Have they all being hidden in these Emirs palaces. If so, those who said the girls were not missing? could be right. I weep for Nigeria.
