CAN distance itself from unknown Bishops seen attending official unveiling of Shettima as Tinubu’s running mate
Punch reported that people watched in amusement as pastors and Bishops from different Christian denominations showed up at the venue.
It was gathered that their presence caused a stir as onlookers and guests stared hard at them as they walked into the reception of the Musa Yar’Adua Centre dressed in their cassocks and habits, amid heavy security at the venue.
The dramatic scene played out days after Special Assistant on Media and Communications to the Christians Association of Nigeria’s President, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, condemned APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
He said at the time; “The Christian Association of Nigeria has stated it clearly that the situation in the country now is not suitable for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
“It is up to Nigerians to accept or reject. Today’s Nigeria is not the same as when Nigerians voted Abiola-Kingibe ticket which was eventually annulled. Our prayers are with Nigeria and Nigerians.”
CAN General Secretary, Rev. Joseph Bade Daramola had also described the choise of Shettima “as a declaration of war.”
