Cri­sis hits CAN, dis­solves el­ders fo­rum Ab­bas Ji­moh The lead­er­ship cri­sis rock­ing the Chris­tian As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (CAN) took a new di­men­sion as the Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee (NEC) of the as­so­ci­a­tion dis­solved the Na­tional Chris­tian El­ders Fo­rum (NCEF) due to ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences with its ac­tiv­i­ties.

This is con­tained in the com­mu­niqué is­sued yes­ter­day in Abuja, of CAN NEC meet­ing held Tues­day in Abuja and jointly signed by CAN act­ing Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Bar­ris­ter Daramola Joseph Bade and Di­rec­tor, Na­tional Is­sues, Bishop S.T.V. Adeg­bite.

The meet­ing, the com­mu­niqué said, also ap­plauded the CAN Pres­i­dent for the un­prece­dented achieve­ments recorded un­der his watch and passed a vote of con­fi­dence on him.

The NEC said the dis­solved NCEF was us­ing the so­cial me­dia and a sec­tion of the tra­di­tional me­dia to at­tack its lead­er­ship es­pe­cially the Pres­i­dent, Dr Sam­son Ayokunle, us­ing un­print­able words to la­bel him due to his re­fusal to take direc­tive from its mem­bers.

The NEC, in a let­ter with ref­er­ence num­ber: CAN/Ag.GS/ OGMAILS/205 and dated No­vem­ber 23, 2018, also in­formed the NCEF Chair­man, Prof. Solomon Ase­mota (SAN) of the de­vel­op­ment.

The CAN NEC also dis­misses the me­dia pub­li­ca­tion of the im­me­di­ate past Na­tional Youth CAN Chair­man, Mr. Daniel David Kadzai, who al­leged that the CAN Pres­i­dent de­frauded CAN of “over N2.8bn”.

It said, “CAN re­grets that a man who had served in the past, and was tol­er­ated in spite of his nu­mer­ous in­com­pe­tent lead­er­ship skills, could not only be ma­li­cious, but im­per­son­ate him­self as Chair­man of the Congress of North­ern Nige­rian Chris­tians (CNNC). Although he has apol­o­gized for his false­hood by the said pub­li­ca­tion and has ver­bally re­tracted his claims, and the CNNC has equally de­nied him of be­ing their Chair­man, it is im­por­tant to set the record straight.”
