Muhammadu Buhari.

T he Kaduna State chapter of the Christian
Association of Nigeria (CAN) today declared their rejection of a kangaroo election held last
week to pick a successor for CAN’s erstwhile
national president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor

it was reported extensively on plans by
Pastor Oritsejafor and his cronies to rig the
elections in favor of candidates who would not
probe the controversial former president’s tenure.
Pastor Oritsejafor had systematically excluded
some candidates whom he classified as agents of jihadists and President Muhammadu Buhari.

After the questionable elections, the outgoing CAN
president had declared that Reverend Samson
Ayokunle had won the election by polling 57
votes, with Elder Joseph Otubu winning 28 votes.
Both men are believed to be puppets of the
outgoing president.

101 people were expected to vote, but the results
announced by the former CAN leader showed that
only 85 votes were cast.

In a widely circulated online interview with BBC
Hausa Service, Pastor Sunday Ibrahim, the
secretary of the Kaduna State chapter of CAN,
distanced his chapter from Pastor Oritsejafor’s
plot. “They just go and do something, and they
called it election. They should fear God because it was not the election, and we are not part of it and
[we] distanced ourselves. We are calling on the
national leadership in the name of God to call
people again because it is not an election,” Pastor
Ibrahim stated.

He added: “Every association has rules and
regulations and our own was not followed. No
matter what you did, if it is not in line with [the]
Constitution, it is not [an] election. The election will
not stand because it has no foundation in truth
and sincerity. It’s purely a selfish issue contrary to the rules guiding election of the association. From
the beginning to the end, the rules of election in
CAN were never applied.”

The spokesman of the Kaduna State chapter of
CAN explained that the association has an electoral
college and permits all members to aspire to lead
and also to vote. He added, “but in this case there
was a person that was vehemently denied the
right to participate without justifiable reason. We are appealing to them to fear God and remember
that we will all die and give account to Almighty
God.”
