Northern Christian group rejects Ayokunle as CAN boss




A group under the aegis of Concerned Christians of Nigeria and Northern Nigerian Christians yesterday said it would not recognise Reverend Supo Ayokunle as president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Addressing a joint press conference in Jos, the Plateau State capital, Rev. Luka Shehu and Mr. Peter Doka who both spoke on behalf of the group said: “What happened on 14th June 2016 at the Christian Centre where Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor handed over CAN to Rev. Supo Ayokunle was a travesty of justice, manipulation and imposition by men in white collar and cassocks.“In the spirit of freedom of choice and liberty, we hereby state emphatically that those who wish to continue their membership of CAN in the North are free to do so.

However, after wide consultation among Christians leaders, traditional rulers, youths and women, we under this auspice from the North have unanimously decided to revert to the pre-independence Northern Nigeria Christian Association.”


They further alleged: “In Oritsejafor’s desperation to hand over to cronies, puppets and allies, they hurriedly ratified the stage-managed elections of 14th June 2016 and the former CAN president with mockery to due process and integrity, handed over to his choice.”
