National Christian Elders Forum

To: The President
Thro: The General Secretary
Christian Association of Nigeria

Dear Sirs,


NCEF wishes to notify the leadership of CAN that in view of the moribund CAN Trust Fund, National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has called on Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN) to establish a Lay Faithful Trust Fund.


The Lay Faithful Trust Fund shall commence operations immediately bearing in mind the escalation of attacks on Christianity and Democracy in the country.

In the meantime, NCEF wishes to register its amazement at the way the issues that led to CAN Trust Fund becoming moribund was handled. It is hoped that such mishandling of issues shall never occur again in the body of Christ.

Kindly find under the cover of this letter the following documents in support of the need to establish the Lay Faithful Trust Fund:

  1. Born to Rule to the Graveyard;
  2. Nigeria is not a Mistake: it Requires Re-inventing
  3. Nigeria: Unfolding Genocide? An Inquiry by the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief;
  4. ‘Your Land or Your Blood’ The Escalating Persecution and Displacement of Christians in Northern and Central Nigeria; and
  5. Fulani Militias’ Terror: Compilation of news (2017 - 2020)

Please accept my sincere gratitude for your kind cooperation.

Yours in Christ,

Elder Solomon Asemota, SAN
