The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Wednesday, September 9, lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari’s revelation of his conversation with the United States President, Donald Trump.
In a statement issued by the Vice President, CAN, Kaduna Chapter, John Hayab, je said, “Buhari and his government will never stop amusing us with their tales by moonlight; because what is happening in Zamfara; Sokoto; Katsina; Birnin Gwari; Southern Kaduna; Taraba; Plateau; as well as others cannot be described as a cultural thing.
“President Buhari’s weak story about his conversation with President Donald Trump further confirms why his government does not care about the killings in our country by calling them cultural things
“Just this (Tuesday) evening, I received a report from the Kaduna Baptist Conference President about the number of their members that have been killed by bandits in Kaduna State from January 2020 to date to be 105 and our President will call it a cultural thing? All we can say is may God save our Nigeria.”
Buhari revealed that at the heat of the bloody clashes between herdsmen as well as farmers in Nigeria; the United States President, Donald Trump once asked him why he was killing Christians.
He said he managed to explain to the American leader that the clashes were not about ethnicity or religion.
Buhari further revealed, “I believe I was about the only African among the less developed countries the President of United States invited.
“When I was in his office, only myself and himself, only God is my witness; he looked at me in the face, he asked, ‘why are you killing Christians?’
“So, I tried and explained to him (Trump) that this has got nothing to do with ethnicity or religion. It is a cultural thing.”
