The Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Methodist Church Nigeria, Most Reverend (Dr.) Sunday Agwu, has revealed what Christians must do following incessant killings in different parts of the country.
The cleric said Christians in the country must come together and have one agenda both nationally and at the state level.
Fielding questions from the Sun at the weekend, Agwu recalled that cases such as what currently obtains led to the formation of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the 1970s. According to him, “Christians should come together and have an agenda. I repeat, Christians must have an agenda both at the national and state levels.
“I don’t know whether you are aware how Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) was formed? It was because the Muslims were lording it over us in the 1970s. “That was what led to the birth of CAN. So, we decided then that we should have a body called Christian Association of Nigeria that would be the mouthpiece of Christians in Nigeria. So, I am calling on Christians because I have seen that Christians are not together.”
The Archbishop further stated that the Muslim has an agenda which, according to him, was to Islamise the country.
He added, “And because they are not together, we don’t have an agenda. The Muslims have an agenda. And whether we like it or not, this issue of Islamization of the nation is true. It is true.
“We are only safe because God is there to fight for us. God is there to fight for us. Apart from that, these Muslims would have cleared us as Christians in this country.
“So, if Christians can come together, it would help us to have an agenda, to help us to say to ourselves ‘what do we do?”
