YOWICAN Counters National Leadership

The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has disagreed with its national leadership’s claim that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), compelled candidates to write Arabic as a subject in the recently conducted police recruitment examination.

In a statement issued on Monday, the president of YOWICAN, Daniel Kadzai, said their fact-finding mission to know the truth regarding the inclusion of Arabic from JAMB was very revealing, “as we saw the fairness, transparent and equitable way a public agency should be managed”.

“In as much as we came with complaints, as Christians whose Bible teaches love and truth, we must equally promote love for one another and also say things the way we see them. I know a lot of people will antagonise this statement but this is the truth,” he said.

He however said it is important for the registrar to use his influence as a strategic personality to help address government policies and appointments that seem to favour one side of the religion “which is building up unimaginable mutual suspision in the country”.

“Most of the directors in JAMB are Christians, some are also deacons in their respective churches and they told us in confidence that they set the examination.”
