Allegations of Bribery Against CAN Deepens

The Ayo Oritsejafor led Christians Association of Nigeria has tarnished the image of  all Christians in Nigeria. This is according to a Borno State-based pastor and Executive Director of the Voice of Northern Christians, Reverend Kallamu Musa-Dikwar. He accused the Christians Association of Nigeria of collecting N7bn bribe from President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign against the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate in the March 28 election. he insists that the CAN collected the said amount and have been importing  guns to enable the PDP cause chaos. A shameful thing for a religious body. He added That Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka is the only honest and bold christian clergy man who was willing to speak out.

“CAN has become a mafia. the Shepherd has become the sheep and the center could not hold any longer. CAN is in the news for crimes like arm racketeering and openly campaigning for politicians.
The gangster leadership of bling bling has drowned the church. Oritsjafor should resign to save his soul from eternal damnation. Thank God for Ejike mbaka’s boldness and incorruptibility”

Musa-Dikwar on Monday in Kaduna insisted that the Jonathan government gave CAN N7bn to campaign against the APC candidate, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

He however said that neither Jonathan nor Buhari was fit to govern the country.

The cleric said CAN collected N7bn from Jonathan and not N6bn as alleged by the Rivers State governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, who is also the Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.

Amaechi had alleged that unnamed leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party paid N6bn to Christian clerics to campaign against the APC. The allegation has caused uproar among the Christian community, with the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria and the Northern State Christian Elders Forum asking Amaechi to name the church leaders who collected the N6bn.

He said the Christians body got N7bn on January 26, 2015 and disbursed N3m each to state chairmen of the CAN across the country.
