CAN under fire for interfering in Nigeria politics

Concerned Christians Forum of Nigeria (CCFN) has warned the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) against dabbling into politics, which has been causing disunity in the body of Christ.

CCFN, which gave the warning, noted that CAN constant comments and statements on political issues do no conform to the vision of its founding fathers.

James Amedu, National Coordinator, at a press conference on Monday, stressed that divisiveness must not emanate from Christendom.

It said: “The street logic offered by that statement was that the President and the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) are Muslims hence a Senate President of the Christian faith will “give all Nigerians a sense of belonging

“It turned out that this story was flown as a strategy for scoring an invite to the Villa since the association’s leadership was aware that such invitation will not be willingly extended to it after identifying as the “Christian Chapter of the Opposition” in clear violation the neutrality expected of an organization whose membership straddles the political divide.
