Christian Association of Nigeria calls for a reflection of ethnic and religious balance in the appointment of principal officers


The Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), has called on the National Assembly to reflect ethnic and religious balance in the appointment of new principal officers for the 9th parliament.

The Christian body said this was necessary to address the imbalance in appointments in the executive and judicial arms and to remove any apprehension and suspicion.

The CAN spokesman, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, in a statement in Abuja, cautioned against the domination of the leadership position in NASS by any ethnic or religious group.

The association further called on the 9th National Assembly members to address both the religious and ethnic gulfs between the North and South regions in the interest of equity, justice and fair play.
