CAN Cautions On Girl-Child Marriage

By Tony Nwanne

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to warn traditional rulers against child marriage.

Some executive committee members of CAN from 19 northern states who met with Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, made this known on Thursday November 3, 2016.

They said it is gradually becoming a trend and its gathering ‘a cloud crisis’ and this would cause a serious one if not checked.

They also told the president that Christians were facing difficulties in practising their faith in Northern Nigeria.
The chairman of the body, Yakubu Pam, later told State House reporters that they visited Aso Rock to inform the president about some of the challenges confronting Christians in the north.
