Kerry’s Nigeria visit ‘fuelled religious divisions’

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has accused the US secretary of state of fuelling ethnic and religious divisions during his recent visit to the country.
John Kerry had acted in a divisive and discriminatory way by visiting the Muslim north of the country, and meeting the Sultan of Sokoto and other northern leaders, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) said.
His “lack of respect for the heterogeneous nature of Nigeria, amounted to favouring northern Nigeria and Muslims to the detriment of the Christian community”, Supo Ayokunle, CAN President, said.
So far, there has been no response from the US about the comments.
