The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) disowned Bishops who attended the unveiling of the All Progressives Congress running mate Kashim Shettima, on Wednesday.
According to the CAN said the presidential candidate of the ruling party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was free to hire mechanics and other artisans and sew clerical garments for them”, that effort would only add to their many ropes but would not change the need for fairness and justice.
Meanwhile, The Vice President of CAN (19 Northern States and Abuja) and its chairman in Kaduna State, Rev. Joseph John Hayab, said this in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
He said, “The people we saw at the unveiling of Shettima paraded as Bishops are people who did not have enough time to learn how to wear Bishop garments. Take a closer look at their photo and you will see another Nollywood movie.
Earlier, the media had been awash with reports from religious bodies urging Christian leaders to boycott the unveiling to drive home the point of their grievances.
Despite warning from different groups, Tinubu said his decision on Muslim Muslim ticket is finally, noting that is not about religion but rather about ‘competent, capable and reliable.’
