The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Church of Anglican Communion, Kwara State, have dissociated themselves from the purported endorsement of a governorship candidate and political party in the next Saturday gubernatorial and State House of Assembly election.
According to a statement signed by the Province of the Kwara Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion led by His Grace, Most Rev. Israel Afolabi Amoo, and other eight respected Bishops that constituted the province, wishes to dissociate themselves from the misleading and all ill calculated endorsement of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State by CAN.
That the purported endorsement was conceived, concerted and given birth to by a charlatan whose stock in trade is to denigrate CAN and its leadership by dragging it into partisan politics.
The statement noted that there was no time that CAN as body either clandestinely or overtly met to endorse the said party as a party of choice for the teeming Christian community in the state.
Bishop Amoo urged Christians in the state to continue to pray for peaceful governorship and state assembly election across the country and Kwara state in particular.
Meanwhile, Rev Father Raph Ajewole, the Director of Ecumenical of CAN, has also described the posting of the purported endorsement on the social media as ungodly, evil and satanic.
