Jos cleric exposes CAN leaders

24 October 2016, 14:17

Abuja - A Jos-based clergy, Pastor Kallamu Ali Dikwa, on Sunday, said he was offered N1million of the sum received from the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organization to ‘keep quiet’ by the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Saharareporters reports.

He first blew open the allegation in 2015 when he claimed the money was given to CAN for the purpose of campaigning for the former president.

However, CAN President Supo Ayokunle on Sunday dismissed the allegation as a mere fabrication. Ayokunle was vice president to Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who was CAN President.

Ayokunle said he has never given anyone money since his assumption of office three months ago.

Pastor Dikwa said in Kaduna that he was not out to defame or embarrass anybody, but to let the world know that CAN as a body of Christ should shun illegal money.

Meanwhile Osun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, has blamed the Buhari-led government for the incessant killings of Christians in the northern part of the country according to News24.

The Chairman of the chapter, Rev. Elisha Ogundiya, said this in Osogbo at a programme organised by the Nigerian Union of Journalists  Correspondents’ Chapel, Osun State, to mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of the state.
