CAN Denies N7 Billion Vote-For-Jonathan Bribe Allegations

Share this story.

A red-faced Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has denied allegations that the association’s leaders were in receipt of a N7 billion financial “war chest” to secure the Christian votes for President Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28, 2015 Presidential Election.
The allegation came to light through a certain Voice of Northern Christian Movement and its Executive Director, Mr. Musa Dikwa.
However, a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by the General Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake, claimed that the allegation was made by those using different Christian organisations to perpetrate fraud and urged security agencies to investigate it.
Asake wrote: “For the avoidance of doubt, CAN has no knowledge of any N7 billion transaction as alleged by Musa Dikwa who claims to be the Executive Director of a non-existent group, Voice of Northern Christian Movement.
“CAN is not a political party, let alone getting involved in partisan politics. Christians who are members of CAN belong to different political parties. It is therefore surprising to hear that CAN is campaigning for one candidate.
“Revered men of God including the CAN President, Pastors Ayo Oritsejafor; Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel and Pastor Bosun Emmanuel (Secretary-General of National Christian Elders Forum) are too upright to be linked with any such deal.
“We are therefore calling on security agencies to investigate the activities of the Voice of Northern Christian Movement and Musa Dikwa himself to unravel the N7 billion mystery which is intended by their sponsors to throw the country into serious crisis.”
In addition, CAN alerted that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, may have been cornered by some fraudsters “because his endorsement for the March 28 general election by Northern Christian Leaders Eagle-Eye Forum led by one Aminchi Habu was fraudulent.”
