2019: Nigeria Christians Deny Endorsing Buhari

LAGOS JUNE 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has debunk the claim that it has endorsed the candidacy of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office.
A political movement, Change Advocates of Nigeria (CAN) had last week issued a statement endorsing President Buhari for a second term in office.
In a press release signed by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant (Media and Communications) to CAN President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, CAN said “after reading the report, we have come to realise that the statement was issued by a political movement with the same acronym, CAN.”
The christian body reiterated that it has not endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari or any other presidential aspirant for election and urged the general public to discountenance the claim because it did not emanate from the Christian body.
“CAN recognises the right of political groups to perform their activities and also endorse whoever they deem fit in support of their political aspirations. We wish to therefore disassociate ourselves from the political group making this claim using our acronym ‘CAN,” it said in the statement.
The body said “while we are presently making enquiries to determine the circumstances behind a group deploying our acronym for political mileage, we call on Nigerians once again to dismiss the alleged report as coming from CAN”.
“We pray for all that are contesting for one position or the other including the incumbent President that the will of the Lord will come to pass in their lives and that the best person in the mind of God would emerge victorious in the name of Jesus,” CAN further stated.
