ICAC- GEN Knocks CAN Over Standing Committee of Church

The International Coalition Against Christian Genocide in Nigeria (ICAC-GEN) has condemned Primate Henry Ndukuba and the Standing Committee of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) while commending the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN).

The ICAC-GEN in a statement by its President, Dr Nwankwo T Nwaezeigwe raised concerns over the current crumbling state of Nigeria and called on all Nigerian Christian leaders to reflect on Proverbs 29:2, Ezekiel 3:17 and 18, and Hosea 8:4 in their actions concerning economic, political, and security situations.

Commending the CBCN’s resolute stance on insecurity as stated in its recent conference held at Abuja, the group extended praises to Ibadan and Lagos Ecclesiastical Province expressed its revulsion against current politics issues as he sympathized with victims affected by insecurity.

The group noted that called for practical actions as speech alone cannot solve national issues according to James 2:17; practical action is needed.

The ICAC-Gen urged church leaders to speak out against slaughtering of Christians in Nigeria adding that Anglican leadership led by Most Reverend Henry Ndukuba proved insensitive to Nigerians’ suffering caused by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s election.

”In its statement on the “State of the Nation”, the Anglican Standing Committee stated with outrageous apostasy:

“The Standing Committee meeting of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) notes that the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is gradually putting in place its plans and policy drive. The Standing Committee meeting therefore calls on the President and government to rise to the occasion of the challenging issues facing the nation.”

On the vexatious issue of insecurity and mass killings, the Standing Committee in its watery and Federal Government interest-serving position stated:

“The Standing Committee meeting decries the constant attacks in Plateau, Zamfara, Ekiti, Ondo, Benue, parts of Imo and Anambra States and other parts of the country. It therefore calls on the government and statutory security agencies to rise to their responsibilities of protection of the lives and property of the citizenry, giving heed to the call for effective community policing.”

The above reprehensible position of Anglican leadership was in fact a window-dressing of Most Reverend Henry Ndukuba’s earlier position eulogizing the punitive Government of Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu and telling Nigerians to wait till the next twenty years to be free from their current heinous state of suffering. It should be recalled that Primate Ndukuba had on February 11, 2024 at Abuja told Nigerians in his own words:

“I want to appeal to Nigerians to exercise patience by giving this government more time to do what they said they would do. With the problem that we have, it’s not something that can be solved within a day, one month or one year. The magnitude of our problems will take us another 10 to 20 years for us to deal with them.”

”The Anglican Standing Committee informed us that the theme of its conference which was founded on Exodus 32: 25-29 was “WHO IS ON THE LORD’S SIDE: Contending with Apostasy in our Generation.” The question here is who can be more apostate than the Anglican Church leadership, putting into consideration its insensitivity to the plight of the Nigerian masses and rebellious grandstanding against those it is ordained by God to shepherd?

They also sold their birthrights as leaders of the Christian faith in Nigeria for a pot of porridge in the spirit of Esau when they supported Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu— another Muslim fundamentalist who not only ignominiously degraded the status of Nigerian Christians as second-class citizens by appointing another Muslim as his Vice President, but insulted the sacred tradition of Christian leadership in Nigeria by dressing street urchins in the garb of Bishops to attend the unveiling his Vice President Alhaji Kashim Shettima. Up till today the leaders of Nigerian Christendom have not considered that episode as the highest point of abuse and desecration of the sanctity of divine leadership in the Church of Christ. Can such act be taken against the Muslim tradition of leadership by a Christian Presidential candidate?” he said.

The group explained that the fundamental problem facing Nigeria is not Muslim or Fulani oligarchy but rather a rebellious church that thrives more on Ahithophel’s counsel than divine commission leading to disobedience adding that the Church needs internal convulsion to boldly defend Christians since over ninety-five percent are victims of kidnappings, devilish extortions killings displacements from ancestral lands caused by Muslim jihadists.

”Our Conclusion:

The fundamental problem of Nigeria is not the Muslim or Fulani oligarchy who wants to maintain their grip on power by every means both possible and impossible; it is not the armed Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen and bandits or Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) kidnapping, devilishly extorting, killing, maiming and displacing our people from their ancestral lands. A problem becomes no problem to a people when they boldly apply equal or greater force to the problem.

The fundamental problem of Nigeria is a rebellious Church. A Church constructed on the condemnable spirits of Esau, King Saul and Judas Iscariot; a Church that thrives more on the counsel of Ahithophel; a Church of disobedience to its divine commission. A problem becomes a problem to a people only when their leaders reap from the same problem, consider their personal wellbeing above those of their people, and consequently see no reason to bring the problem to order.

This explains why in both the communiqués by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria and the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) Standing Committee, there was no specific mention of spiraling cases of Christian persecution or the fact that over nine-five (95) percent of the victims of these kidnappings, devilish extortions, killings and displacements from ancestral lands are Christians. The Church in Nigeria needs internal convulsion to boldly defend the Christians of this nation. ” ICAC-Gen Concluded.
