You’re blind to Christians’ persecution, 25 groups tackle President’s spokesperson

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.
