Russia-Ukraine War: Nothing Must Happen To Nigerians, Says CAN

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Friday, urged the Federal Government to provide adequate cover for Nigerians caught in the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine vanguard reported.

The Chairman of CAN’s Youth Wing (YOWICAN), Belusochukwu Enwere, in a statement titled, ‘Between Russia and Ukraine: Nothing must happen to Nigerians’, urged the authorities to do everything within their power to evacuate Nigerians, especially the youths from the war-ridden nations.

While condemning the ongoing war, the religious body described the war as “dangerous, expensive, disastrous and life consuming” and warned that the two European nations could have themselves to blame, especially if citizens of other nations resident within their borders suffer collateral damages.

Enwere said, “The attention of the Youth Wing Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has been drawn to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. This is not the best for these two countries because many citizens of other countries are residents in their territories, both students and those looking for greener pastures. It is therefore a case of when two elephants fight, the grasses suffer for it.

War is dangerous, expensive, disastrous and life consuming. No nation should ever think of war. Nothing must happen to Nigerians in Ukraine and Russia. If anything happens to any Nigerian citizen in Russia and Ukraine, both countries must have themselves to blame. We’ll use everything at our disposal to, within the diplomatic community, get back. A word is enough for the wise.

“The Federal Government should do everything within its power to evacuate our citizens, especially our youths from these war-ridden countries.
