A coalition of 25 Christian non-governmental organisations has claimed the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, has made himself “the stumbling stone each time the Christian Association of Nigeria raises and re-echoes godly concerns of Nigerian Christians”.
Adesina had accused CAN of “sounding too long like a political party” in his reaction to the body’s statement on the execution of its chairman in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Lawan Andimi, by Boko Haram.
But the coalition in a statement on Saturday by its National Coordinator, Isaac Okonkwo, and National Secretary, Garba Yohanna, asked Adesina to stop using his office to attack CAN leaders.
The statement read, “It is an open knowledge that terrorists and their kinsmen, Fulani herdsmen, have turned many predominantly Christian communities into killing fields.
“This is too obvious to be disputed except to the insincere and mischievous minds like Adesina.
