“It has come to our notice that it is in the media that our secretariat wrote a letter endorsing the candidature of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State for President come 2019.

“This is a farce and should be completely disregarded by all and sundry."

The Christian Association of Nigeria said this in a statement on Thursday, while reacting to its alleged endorsement of the presidential ambition of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

The national leadership of the Christian body, in a statement on Thursday, described its reported endorsement of Fayose for President in 2019 as a farce.

It urged the public to disregard the report.

The statement quoted CAN’s Director of National Issues, Bishop Stephen Adegbite, as stressing that “it is not in the organisation’s character to endorse politicians but to pray to God to choose the right leaders for the country.”

Adegbite said, “CAN, as we all know, is the umbrella body of all Christians in Nigeria; so, how on earth can the organisation come out to support or endorse the candidature of anyone?"
