CAN Distances Self From ‘Bishops’ At Shettima’s Unveiling

The Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) has distanced itself from Bishops who attended the unveiling of the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress,(APC) Kashim Shettima, describing them as desperados.

The Vice President of CAN (19 Northern States and Abuja) and its chairman in Kaduna State,Rev. Joseph Hayab, made this known on Wednesday in Abuja.

TheFact Daily recalled that CAN had kicked against the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Someone prominent Nigerians and religious groups have accused APC and Tinubu of being insensitive to the religious diversity of the country by presenting a single faith ticket for the 2023 presidential election.

The Christian body said those men spotted in religious garbs were mechanics and other artisans allegedly hired and sewn clerical garments by the APC Presidential candidate.

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

“CAN wonders why the desperation. First, a story was out claiming to have come from the Chairman of CAN Borno state only to be refuted. Secondly, there was another lie that BAT (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 of which he is the Vice President.

“Another desperation story was that they met Papa Adeboye which the RCCG later refuted. If Christians are not important why the desperation?

“BAT is free to hire mechanics and other artisans and sew clerical garments for them. An effort that will only add to their many ropes when the political exercise is over but will not change the need for fairness and justice that CAN is calling for.

“CAN appreciate that we are in a democracy, no need to do funny and dubious things just to prove a point because it will in the end bounce back. BAT team should simply do what is right and stop the drama.”
