We are in a period where people give it back to you when they do not agree with your point of view. Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has slammed Noble Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka for saying that Religion will destroy Nigeria if not tamed.

He made this statement during a book presentation in Abuja where he said that he would like to transfer that cry by President Muhammadu Buhari on corruption from the moral zone to the terrain of religion. If we do not tame religion in this nation, religion will kill us.

But unfortunately the CAN did not take it lightly as the association spoke through its National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Samuel that religion was not responsible for Nigeria’s problems.

“With due respect to Prof. Soyinka, it is not true that religion is the bane of Nigeria’s stability. No genuine religion promotes killings and destruction of lives and property.

“It is unfair for the Nobel laureate to project religion as a problem when it is the faithful believers that are praying and sacrificing to keep the nation moving,” Samuel said.

“Christianity preaches peace in all its ramifications. I challenge the professor to identify one attack on any community in Nigeria that was reported to have been carried out by Christians. Let him show any terrorist group by whatever name that shouts the name of Jesus before attacks or claim they are fighting for Jesus.

“We are sad that the so-called religious killing is persisting because our prominent leaders are not ready to call a spade by its real name”, he stated further.
