The Kaduna chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has passed a no confidence vote in President Muhammadu Buhari, saying his administration had failed to decisively tackle the herdsmen’s pogrom currently threatening the corporate existence of the nation.

The body also opposed the establishment of cattle colonies across the federation, pointing out that the move was tantamount to creating the colonies for the “foreigners to continue to wage unrelenting war against innocent Nigerians.

The chapter secretary, Rev. (Dr.) Sunday Ibrahim, during a briefing yesterday in Kaduna, called on the electorate to vote credible persons at the 2019 elections. Speaking while receiving the leadership of the state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ibrahim said government had failed in delivering governance.

His words: “The Federal Government has consistently told us that these Fulani herdsmen attackers are foreigners. They said the attackers are members of the Islamic State of West Africa (ISWA), who are on a jihad mission. If that is true, it then means that the government of Nigeria has failed us. But we are saying that enough of this bloodshed in our land.”

According to him, the 2019 polls should be based on individual Performances, noting: “Nigerians must be prepared to vote credible people and not people that will continue to tell us lies when they get there. Voting pattern this time around should be based on individual performances and not on party platform. Again, politicians must learn from the 2015 experience. Whoever wins should be allowed to lead and whoever loses must accept defeat in good faith.

“Today we have a lot of hunger in the land, Nigerians are suffering and our leaders seem to be comfortable with what is happening. What we need in 2019 is a complete shift from what we are having now and the only way to do it is for Nigerians to obtain the Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) and use it appropriately when the time comes.”

On the clashes between herdsmen and farmers nationwide, Ibrahim condemned the attitude of the federal and state governments in the handling of the situation, adding that the nation had shared enough blood to bring the pogrom to an end. (The Guardian)
