THE Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), in Northern Nigeria, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide, Lauretta Onochie as a prodigal child over her comment on CAN.
Onochie on a Facebook post, attacked the Christian apex body, accusing them of hating President Buhari.
CAN while reacting to her, said she is misguided and a serial liar who is seeking attention by denigrating religious leaders.
In a statement signed Rev John Hayab, (Public Relations Officer), Northern CAN, it said “our attention has been drawn to a terrifying misguided outburst of the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, against the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
Since this is the second time this low character would be attacking CAN Leadership over its position against the unconstitutionality of the Federal Government, we are convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that she is under instruction to insult the leadership of CAN.”
CAN said “we would have ignored this attention-seeking presidential aide that has gone demented in her attempt to denigrate religious leaders who are doing everything to ensure peace amongst our people across religious divide but the need to set the record straight.
“Onochie’s misadventure into the corridors of power brings to mind the parable of the prodigal son in the Bible. It is the desire of every parent to have a well-nurtured child, but when a child is arrogant, blind and misguided, such a child can then end up in destruction.
