We support CAN on Muslim/Muslim ticket — Catholic Knights

The Knight of Saint Mulumba (KSM), Nigeria, has said that it is supporting the decision of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) against the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

It will be recalled that the presidential and vice presidential candidate of the APC are of the same faith and this has caused several reactions among the people since the party made the decision.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Worthy Metropolitan Grand Knight, KSM, Michael Aule, said, “We encourage our brothers to join politics. Many of our brothers are politicians and have been elected into positions.

“The issue is that we don’t regulate the activities of brothers who are in politics but we support 100 percent the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria. We are members of CAN and we stand with what decision they have taken.

“On this issue of Muslim/Muslim ticket, we are also standing for what CAN has taken. The decision of the Christian Association of Nigeria is the decision of the Knight of Saint Mulumba.”

Furthermore, he said that KSM would hold its conference next week and it would centre on the Christian Church in Nigeria and the increasing challenges of assisting Christians in the country. Also, it will focus on the issues in chaotic regions in Nigeria.

The Metropolitan Grand Knight of Abuja Metropolitan Council also said that the Order depended on its members who can fight a good cause because of their social position, education and material resources; and also achieve success.

He added that the aim is to achieve success for the Church and the country using their 3Ts which are time, talent and treasures.

In his words: “The Supreme Convention of KSM Nigeria is a platform for the promotion of the values of the Order through open discussions on vital issues such as the Christian faith, religious harmony, good governance, sustainable development, peace, unity, and equity as they affect our beloved country.”
