We Never Endorsed Buhari For Second Term ―CAN

Published

on

The Leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has distanced itself from a media publication implying that the Association endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for the second term in the upcoming 2019 presidential election.This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Assistant (Media and Communications) to CAN President, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji.According to the statement “our attention has been drawn to a news story published by an online that has become notorious for publishing fake stories.

According to the story, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for the second term in office after CAN had met with some 14 Presidential candidates in Abuja.“There was nothing like that, either before, during or after the parley. At the tail end of the programme, the CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Ayokunle, who briefed the press, did not say any of the candidates has been endorsed”The statement noted that while addressing journalists after the parley with Presidential candidates, the CAN President, Reverend Dr Samson Ayokunle said “The motive is not to take for granted the 2019 elections.  Nigeria will depend on next year’s presidential election. That is, how free and fair it is going to be.

“The church cannot take the back seat in this situation because it can only prosper when Nigeria prospers. If the election is not free and fair, then, all Nigerians, including the church, will be in trouble.“So, we decided to reach out to the presidential candidates to ask them their credentials for aspiring to the highest office in the land. Also, to interrogate their plans for all, including the church. We also brought them together to speak to their consciences so that they don’t set this nation on fire.

When asked of the outcome of the parley, Rev Ayokunle had said, “We are going to draw our conclusion after we have finished our interview.”The statement however said “speaking on President Buhari’s decline of assent to the Electoral Act amendment, CAN President said, “The Executive and the National Assembly should put their house together, whenever there is this kind of disagreement or a stalemate,  the executive and the legislature should come together as partners  in progress to mutually find a way forward. They can’t afford to play with the future of the country through this forthcoming 2019 general elections.

Everything must be done to ensure that the election is free and fair.”“So, where did his eminence inform these liars and mischief makers that CAN have endorsed President Buhari for a second term? We appeal to members of the public to beware of those who are fabricating this fake news for whatever reasons. We challenge the online platform that published this fake news to provide relevant footages and an audio clip to back up their report.
