Human right lawyer, Femi Falana, has challenged the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, to “Christianise” Nigeria by setting up interest-free banks.
He gave the challenge while reacting to claims by CAN that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government intended to Islamise Nigeria through the N100 billion Sukuk bond.
Speaking at a strategic dialogue roundtable organised by the Social Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), Falana insisted that the Sukuk bond was legitimate.
Falana explained that the Sukuk bond was a legitimate means through which government could generate funds and that it was a normal practice all over the world.
Challenging religious leaders to be careful in their handling of issues, Falana noted that billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, had clerics who worked for him.
According to Falana,“I am challenging CAN to Christianise Nigerians. Christianise us by setting up interest-free banks.
“Evans has a pastor, a Muslim cleric and traditional priest… because all the prayers are needed.
“Religious leaders should stop confusing our people. Our churches and traditional rulers should stop praying for thieves. This is how low we have sunk.
“What are we as individuals doing to stop these politicians, let’s start with Lagos, let’s start asking our legislators how much they are being paid for doing what?
“Let our church stop conferring honours on criminals. Also our universities should be encouraged to join in the fight.”
