CAN warns FG over grazing reserves



Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria in Ondo state Reverend Ayo Oladapo has asked the federal government to desist from pressuring states to accept grazing reserves.


Oladapo said this in Akure at a prayer summit organized to round off the 2018 Universal Week of Prayers. He said: “Most of our state governors are lame and helpless in this situation. They are been coerced to accept grazing colonies in their states.” While pleading with the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu not to accept the proposal, the cleric said: “God forbid this will not see the light of the day; the Lord will fight for us. In Ondo State, we pray this will never happen.”

He added “We pray God will give our government the boldness to say no to this and the courage to defend the people from the hands of the oppressors”,

The Christians Association of Nigeria CAN have earlier accused the Federal Government of coercing state governors to accept the establishment of grazing reserves in their states despite objection.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Bishops of the Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province; Ilorin, Ondo, Ekiti, Oyo and Osogbo Dioceses, maintained that the nation might face an uncertain future if the Federal Government is not decisive in tackling the social, economic and political ills in the country. While urging the government to find a lasting solution to the various problems bedeviling the country, they warned of looming dangers ahead, adding that the government should be more responsive to numerous crime and mischiefs confronting the country.
