The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has said it has become apparent that the Federal Government has become helpless even as the nation’s security architecture is collapsing.
The apex Christian body said this on Thursday in reaction to the claim by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, that though the government was battling insecurity in one corner of the country, it does not make Nigeria failed state.
However, the CAN President, Most Reverend Samson Ayokunle, in a response sent to Our Correspondent through his media aide, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, maintained that insecurity in any part of the country remained a threat to the nation’s entire corporate existence.

He said, “If a collapsed security architecture is not a sign of a failed state, let the Federal government tell us what makes a failed state? If kidnapping of students in their hundreds with impunity is not a sign of a failed state, let them tell us what it is?
“If terrorists are kidnapping, killing, maiming and destroying property and this government is not moved, then, the country is in trouble.
“This is the first time we are witnessing mass burials every other week in the country. Everyone in the country is not happy with what has become the security architecture under this government.”
