I had the honor of receiving Rev. Musa Asake, the Sec. Gen. of CAN, in my home a few days before Christmas.
He is a courageous and truly wonderful man and I was struck by his extraordinary humility. We discussed the situation in the country and particularly the marginalisation, persecution, slaughter and genocide that Christians are being subjected to in our nation today with particular reference to Kaduna state and the north.
Two days later Southern Kaduna, which is where he comes from, was attacked by the Fulani militants and herdsmen and many innocent people were butchered. He spoke about it in the interview that I posted below.
May God guide and protect him. He is one of the few men of God in this country that has the courage of his convictions and that is prepared to risk all for the Body of Christ. Onward Christian soldier....
I had the privilage of hosting a delegation of Christian Pastors and leaders from Southern Kaduna in my home two days ago. They came to brief me on the situation in Kafanchan. These are very brave and wonderful people who are are living in the lions den. They have been through hell and have witnessed all manner of horrors. Despite that their faith in the Lord remains unshakeable. May God be with them all.
A delegation of Shiite Muslim leaders from the Sheik El Zakzaky group came to brief me on the situation in Kaduna and what they have been subjected to by the military and the Nigerian authorities over the last one year. I was horrified by what I heard. These are very patriotic and courageus men whose colleagues have been through so much and whose leader is still in custody. May God free El Zak Zaky at the soonest and may He deliver us all.
