Boko Haram: CAN Seeks Defence Chief’s Resignation



The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on
Saturday called for the resignation of the
National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo
Dasuki and the Defence minister, Gen. Aliyu
Gusau, over the Boko Haram crisis.
A statement signed by the General Secretary
of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake, argued, “The
President appointed a Muslim, Col. Sambo
Dasuki to replace Gen. Azazi (former NSA)
who was a Christian and later appointed
another Muslim, Gen. Aliyu Gasau as Defence
minister with a pledge to deal ruthlessly with
the Boko Haram Islamic terrorists.
“The major task handed down to Col. Dasuki
and Gen. Gusau is to tackle Boko Haram
insurgency, which was already threatening to
spread into other regions of the country. But
the question in the lips of every Nigerian
Christians today is: “What changes have these
two military tacticians brought to bear since
they were appointed? What is the wisdom of
entrusting the nation’s security in the hands
of two relations from the North West? Why
have these two relations from Sokoto and
Zamfara states not changed their tactics in
accordance with the presidential mandate
given to them to root out the insurgents in
the North East geo-political zone? Is this a
game plan to eliminate people in that region
and put them in perpetual subjugation?”
According to the CAN general secretary,
Nigerian Christians are no longer comfortable
with the continued inclusion of these two
individuals in the cabinet even as the Islamic
terrorists have not only changed tactics
several times but have conquered more
territories and established more caliphates in
the North East during their regime than at
any other period.
“CAN therefore wondered why the NSA and
the Defence minister have not voluntarily
resigned their appointments for poor
coordination of relevant agencies to tackle the
security challenges in the North East region of
the country despite the huge budgetary
allocations for the purpose.”
