Whereas accusing President Buhari of main an anti-christian agenda in Nigeria, a bunch of Christian leaders beneath the aegis of Nationwide Christian Elders Discussion board NCEF, headed by former Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), and Solomon Asemota (SAN), has warned that Christianity might turn out to be extinct in Nigeria in 2043 if the Christian physique in Nigeria is just not restructured to sort out the silent conflict being waged towards the religion on this current administration.

In line with the Christian elders, the current era of Christians faces the danger of being the final set of Christians in Nigeria. Secretary of NCEF, Bosun Emmanuel, expressed these fears in his paper entitled: “Impact of lack of unity in CAN as threat to Christian faith”, delivered through the annual convention of Catholic Males’s Guild, held on the Catholic Church of Assumption, Ikoyi in Lagos.

Within the paper made out there to newsmen, Emmanuel in his paper on behalf of Christian Elders stated the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in Nigeria “is openly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in countless murders of Christians all over the nation and destruction of vulnerable Christian communities.”

“As a result of incapacity of CAN to forge Christians into one indivisible military of the Lord, the Church has been weakened and unable to face earlier than its enemies. Realistically talking, Christianity is on the point of extinction in Nigeria. The ascendancy of Sharia ideology in Nigeria rings the dying toll for the Nigerian Church.

“It’s due to this fact crucial that CAN have to be restructured, as a matter of urgency, if Christianity is to outlive. CAN belongs to each Christian in Nigeria and there may be nothing mistaken with the affiliation. It’s the administration that ought to be revisited and restructured” he stated.

In line with Emmanuel, disunity has crept into Christendom in Nigeria due to the deviation from the norms for which CAN was based in 1976.

He stated, “The Catholic Church ought to be ready to return fully into the fold of CAN and take part absolutely in offering management in these troublous occasions. God warned in 2013 that we weren’t cautious, in 30 to 40 years, Nigeria could be like Turkey.

“In 2018, we will say in 25 years from now, we face the danger of being the final Christians in Nigeria. Subsequently, Christians ought to be within the frontline of defending democracy in Nigeria. The Church is the bastion of democracy. A divided CAN can’t defend democracy and promote justice, fairness, and equity. Consequently, Sharia will develop stronger. As Sharia grows stronger, democracy will turn out to be weaker and the Church shall be emasculated out of existence.

“The present Federal Authorities in Nigeria is overtly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in numerous murders of Christians all around the nation and destruction of weak Christian communities. Only recently, Elder Statesman, Gen. T. Y. Danjuma raised the alarm that Christians ought to take steps to defend themselves.”
