CAN distances self from Tinubu’s bishops

The assumed bishops

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna state chapter, has distanced itself from the Bishops who were at the official unveiling of the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Kashim Shettima.

Shettima, who is a former Governor of Borno state, will be running alongside the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu.

The Kaduna state CAN Chairman, Rev. John Hayab, described the attitude of the bishops as a Nollywood movie who were unable to dress properly.

Hayab is also the CAN chairman of 19 Northern states and federal capital territory (FCT).

Hayab said, “The people we saw at the unveiling of Shettima as the presidential running mate to Bola Tinubu paraded as Bishops are people who did not have enough time to learn how to wear Bishop’s garments. Take a closer look at their photo and you will see another Nollywood movie.

“CAN wonders why the desperation of the All Progressive Congress , firstly, there was a story claiming to have come from the Chairman of CAN Borno state identifying with Kashim Shettima, only for the story to be refuted by the same source.

”Christians in the country remain focused in conducting themselves in accordance with the laid down constitution of the country by casting their votes to credible candidates in the 2023 general elections.”

He also spoke of previous cases where Tinubu’s group spread false claims that had a meeting with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and CAN president on another occasion.

He continued, “There was another lie that Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate were on their way to meet CAN president one night. A meeting that was not true and was on a night that the CAN president was in Alabama USA attending the Baptist World Alliance Conference where he is the Vice President.

“It was alleged that the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate met with Papa Adeboye, which the RCCG later refuted, saying that there is nothing in it but an act of desperation in the story that they met Papa Adeboye.

“If Christians are not important, why the desperation? The All Progressive Congress presidential candidate is free to hire mechanics and other artisans and sew clerical garments for them. It is an effort that will not change the need for fairness and justice that CAN is calling for.”

He also admonished Tinubu’s team to do what is right and stop the drama. He said, “CAN appreciates that we are in a democracy, no need to do funny and dubious things just to prove a point because it will at the end bounce back.

“Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s team should simply do what is right and stop the drama. Because of desperation, the newly robed Bishops took the shine of the occasion more than the candidate that was unveiled. What an irony.”
