CAN faces El-Rufai over threat to demolish Dunamis Church in Kaduna

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State Chapter has tackled Governor Nasir El-Rufai over his threat to bring down the structure of Dunamis church in the state.

Dr. Sunday Ibrahim, who is the state secretary of CAN, stated yesterday that Christians will go against any attempt to persecute them.

CAN’s decision was clear after an official letter from the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KAPSUDA) asking the church to provide details of its operation in the state.

Fatima Bambale, who is the Acting general manager of KAPSUDA, in a letter No. PS/14/PP/ZIII/20, 624/ VOL.I/0 entitled ‘Update of Religious Institutions within the State’, stated: “I have been directed to to ask you to provide the agency with your full details through the attached form.

“You are expected to reply within seven days of receiving this letter.”

CAN while reacting pointed out that KAPSUDA’s letter was part of government’s plan to embark on the persecution of Christians in the state.

In a letter of reaction from CAN to the agency, stated, “We write to express how dissatisfied with the content of your letter and to remind the agency that it is a government agency and not individual establishment.

“Where the government, via the agency, finds it necessary to update religious institutions within the state, we strongly believe that the agency knows the right and proper channel to follow which is through CAN or Interfaith.

“It is found offensive, and inappropriate that the agency should write the individual church directly disregarding CAN, which is the head of Christian organizations.

“This is provoking, with also a sense of suspicion that KASUPDA as a government agency is being used as a tool to persecute the Dunamis International Gospel Centre Churches in Kaduna State.”

It was earlier reported that there had been an altercation between Governor El-Rufai and the General Overseer of Dunamis, Pastor Paul Enenche, after the kidnap and death of a paramount chief of Adara in 2018.
