Confusion As CAN Distances Itself From Bishops Present At Shettima’s Unveiling



Tinubu Speaks On Hiring Fake Bishops

The Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Wednesday disassociated itself from the bishops who were at the Shehu Yar’adua Centre for the official unveiling of Senator Kashim Shettima as the running mate of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress(APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Vice President of CAN and its chairman in Kaduna State, Rev. Joseph John Hayab, stated this in an interview with journalists in Abuja shortly after the former governor of Borno State was unveiled.

Hayab who maintained that those at the event were not its member, wondered why the ruling party could go to such length to hire misfits in order to impersonate the Christian body despite all its warnings over a Muslim-Muslim ticket. He added that such desperation would eventually lead to nothing if the ruling party fails to take counsel.

“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 Progressives 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.”

“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 Baptist World Alliance Conference which he is the Vice President,” he said.

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

“If Christians are not important why the desperation? The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate is free to hire machanics 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.”

“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 off the occasion more than the candidate that was unveiled.What an irony.”

“Nigerians should  vote credible candidates in the 2023 general elections. That is the only way the country could be restored and take its place in the comity of nations,” he said.
