Name Clerics Paraded At Shettima’s Unveiling, CAN Fires APC

2023: What CAN Said On Bishops Who Attended Shettima's Unveiling As Tinubu’s Running Mate

The Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) has challenged the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) to mention the names of its officials who were at the official unveiling ceremony of the 2023 Vice Presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima.

Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media and Communication to the President of CAN, Samson Ayokunle, threw the challenge in his reaction sent to journalists in Abuja, Wednesday.

According to Oladeji, “Let them name the CAN officials at the programme and their offices. If they could use 2017 photos to claim that some Pastors visited Shettima and lied that Pastor E. A Adeboye has endorsed them, they could do anything.

“Our position on Muslim-Muslim ticket is irreversible. Anybody can claim anything but one thing is clear, CAN was not part of the unveiling programme of Shettima.”

This comes after Rev. Joseph John Hayab, Vice President of CAN (19 Northern States and Abuja), in an interview with journalists, on Wednesday, said Tinubu is free to hire mechanics and other artisans and sew clerical garments for them.

According to him, 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.
