CAN says FG should ensure improved security for all Nigerians.
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on Friday in Ibadan called on the Federal Government to ensure improved security for all Nigerians in 2013.
The Chairman of Oyo State Chapter of the Association, Ayo Olabisi, said government should put in place measures to check bombings, killings and kidnappings.
Mr. Olabisi said efforts to re-brand the nation’s image would amount to nothing if Nigerians do not allow peace to reign.
He said a stable economy further engenders development.
“We are expecting new things come year 2013. We stand with the government to condemn the killings, bombings and kidnappings of this year which should change next year.
“The security of this nation is of a high priority, we must therefore come together to support government in ensuring peace reigns in 2013,” he said.
Reacting to Nigeria’s rating as the 35th most corrupt nation in the world by Transparency International, Mr. Olabisi said it was “ saddening and regrettable.’’
He appealed to government to step up the fight against corruption and ensure that all those linked to corrupt practices are arrested and prosecuted.
