CAN Angry Over Lauretta Onochie's Incendiary Statement

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, of the 19 northern states and Abuja has noted with dismay a statement credited to a presidential spokesperson, Lauretta Onochie, that CAN is a “CAN of Worms.”

The association’s Public Relations Officer, Rev. Joseph John Hayab in a statement said, “Never in the history of Nigeria has a Presidential spokesperson displayed ignorance and greed for opportunity by
insulting an entire religion and its organised association as demonstrated by the irresponsible remarks by presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie that called the Christian Association of Nigeria a “CAN of Worms”, simply because we insist that the Federal Government should rescue Leah Sharibu and stop the killings of Nigerians.
