- Police stop CAN protest in Adamawa
The special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, has said peace will return to Nigeria despite the prevailing insecurity in some parts of the country.
The presidential aide made the statement on Tuesday, July 31, when he received members of the Junior Chamber International (JCI), Ikoyi and Orji Kalu Foundation, who were in the state house, Abuja, as part of a peace rally, Daily Trust reports.
Adesina who was quoted in a statement by deputy director, state house media department, Abiodun Oladunjoye, said those working against peace in the country will never win.
“For those working against peace in our country, I have news for them. They will never win. Nigeria will have peace, and if the evildoers don’t settle for peace, that peace will be attained without them. Whether they like it or not, peace will return to Nigeria, despite the difficult times we are passing through now,” Adesina said.
The protest called by the CAN chairman, Adamawa state, Bishop Stephen Mamza, on Wednesday, August 1, drew a large turnout from Christians who trooped to St Theresa Catholic Church, the venue initially planned for the take-off of the procession.
But shortly before the take-off of the protest scheduled for 9am, Mamza told the congregants who had turned up for the protest that the police had canceled it.
CAN said the protest was to draw the government’s attention to the protection of human lives whether Christian, Muslim or Fulani.
