The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday warned state governments and concerned authorities scheming to stop prayers and assembly devotion in primary and secondary schools across the country to have a rethink because such thoughts were “evil and must not prevail.”

It issued the warning in a communique signed by its General Secretary, Rev. (Dr) Musa Asake, issued at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Abuja.

CAN commended Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, for reversing what it described “a wrong directive of an ambitious Permanent Secretary on this matter.” It advised other state governments “involved in this ungodly directive” to take a cue.

According to CAN, implementing the suggestion for the establishment of grazing reserves for Fulani herdsmen in all parts of the country portends “very grave danger to our national peace and security.”
