We have two govts in Kaduna – CAN Chairman



STATE Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, has alleged that Nigerians, particularly the people in the state were battling with the government of bandits and the government legitimately elected by the citizens.

  He said the government of the bandits were terrorising the state and causing fear among residents while the elected government appear not to be bothered by the situation.

  Speaking in an interview in TV on the release of the 28 abducted students of Bethel Baptist High School, in Kaduna, Rev Hyab said the state government was not involved in the release of the kidnapped school children.

  “For these children going through these ordeals, how will they grow to be patriotic and want to serve the nation? How will they grow to be proud that they belong to this country because if they have passed through this pain and their governments are not there for them, it just shows that they have a government but the government is sleeping. I hope that the government wakes up soon before it is too late.”

  “As the state chairman of CAN and member of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, to my knowledge, I am not aware of any government involvement, what I know is that we have been telling the state government to step up measures to secure the lives and properties of the people of the state.”

  He expressed confidence that as the bandits have started releasing the students, the state government would help them ensure the release of the 87 students still in the hands of their abductors.

  He lamented that the released 28 students looked very weak and tired, hoping that with proper medical treatment; they would become strong and healthy.

  He assured that arrangements have been concluded with Global Peace Foundation with the help of others to rehabilitate the children for them to come back to life.

  Rev. Hayab explained that for now, CAN was still concentrating on the remaining 87 students praying and appealing to the bandits to see the need to release them to their parents.

  He also appealed to the parents whose children are still with the kidnappers to have faith in God and believe that their children would soon join them.

  He further appealed to the government to rise to its responsibilities of doing the needful to ensure the remaining students and other kidnapped people regain freedom.

  He commended the JTF and other security agencies for standing with them since the students were kidnapped but asked other security agencies to do the needful and avoid taking directives from leaders especially when it does not benefit the populace.
