The Kaduna state chapter of the Christian
Association of Nigeria, CAN, has cautioned Kaduna
State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, over what it
described as unguarded and unverified comments
made by the governor in a recent interview with
Channels TV. According to Leadership, El-Rufai, in the interview said that Muslims make up 70% of
the population in the state and Christians 30%.

He said this while speaking on the controversial
Religious Regulatory Bill he has sent to the state
house of assembly.

Describing his comments as an unverified one that
can further divide the state along religious lines,
the Secretary of CAN in Kaduna State, Rev. Sunday
Ibrahim, who spoke to journalists in Kaduna state
yesterday April 6th, said

“It is very surprising to hear that coming
out from the Governor. What I know is that
there are data that could be made available
to whoever that cares to see. We are very
surprised that a leader could come out to
say what he says because the Christian and Muslim population is about 50/50. Some
data show that Christians are 55 per cent
and Muslim are 45 per cent in terms of
population. We are surprised that the
governor could come out to say Muslims
have 70 per cent population of Kaduna State while Christians have 30 per cent. He
should have verified his fact before coming
out to make the statement on a national
television. We stand to say no to that very
pronouncement from the governor. We
don’t accept that to be true. The statement by the governor has the tendency of
further dividing the State along religious
line. Such statements could bring ignite
problems in the State. As a governor he
should try to verify issue that are very
sensitive before voicing it out to the public,” he said
