CAN to investigate inclusion of some outgoing officials of the Christian body in APC's Presidential Campaign Council list

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has announced its plan to probe some of its members’ alleged overt partisanship ahead of the 2023 general election.

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Archbishop Daniel Okoh who has now distanced himself from a revised list of members of the Tinubu/Shettima 2023 President Campaign Council, has announced that the Christian body will be investigating the inclusion of some outgoing officials of the Christian body in the APC Presidential Campaign Council list.

Okoh noted that the inclusion is worrisome because it counters the well-known stance of CAN on partisanship.

The statement read;

β€œ1. My attention as President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has been drawn to the revised list of members of the Tinubu/Shettima 2023 President Campaign Council wherein the names of some outgoing officials of the body were featured.

β€œ2. Such a development is worrisome because it counters the well-known stance of CAN on partisanship.

β€œ3. I want to categorically exonerate my humble self from this development and any of such that may occur in the future.

β€œ4. I want to use this medium to assure all Christians in Nigeria and the general public that since I received the news, I have commenced full investigation into how the officials got involved into overt partisanship.

β€œ5. At the end of the probe, CAN will take fair, but decisive and appropriate action with a view to defending the ideals of the umbrella Christian body I lead by the grace of the Almighty God.

β€œ6. On a final note, I urge the general public to be calm while we collectively work to entrench a culture of inclusion and respect for our religious diversities in our political leadership.

β€œSigned:

Archbishop Daniel Okoh
President,
Christian Association of Nigeria”
