CAN Supports Sack Of Alausa Chaplain
The Christian Association of Nigeria seems to have abadoned the sacked Presiding Chaplain of the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Ikeja.
The Chairman of CAN in the state, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said the sacking of Taiwo was done by the Governing Council of the chapel which hired him, adding that the council had the power to fire him.
However, questions on the circumstances surrounding the sacking, including the order for Taiwo, his wife and kids to vacate their official quarters within 24 hours, were avoided by the cleric.
Taiwo’s sack came after Bolanle, the wife of the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, stormed out of an anointing service at the chapel on May 14.
Members of the church had said that Bolanle was angry because she was not anointed first.
There are allegations that some members of the church’s governing council were used by Bolanle, who felt embarrassed by the Sunday incident.
No query was issued to Taiwo on the matter before he sacked and asked to vacate his residence.
The outrage that trailed the report made the state government to change the venue of the Lagos at 50 thanksgiving service from the chapel to the banquet hall of the state house, Ikeja.
Taiwo’s leader at the African Church, Ifako Diocese, Rt. Rev. Michael Adeyemi, had, last Saturday, described the action of Bolanle as ungodly and sacrilegious.
