PCYN alleges dubious characters want to hijack CAN election

A group of Christians under the aegis of Patriotic Christian Youths of Nigeria (PCYN), has alleged that some dubious characters are working very hard to hijack the forthcoming Presidential election of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), reports ITRealms.

The President of PCYN, Evangelist Simon Timothy Nasso, who raised the alarm in a statement made available to ITRealms in Abuja, after the 2016 CAN Electoral College primary election in which Dr. Samson Ayokunle, Head of Baptist Churches in Nigeria, emerged candidate of the Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN).

PCYN said some persons with questionable characters who were allegedly sponsoring a particular candidate that is close to the Presidency have infiltrated CAN and should they succeed, the organization could hijack the electoral process in CAN.

The organisation therefore accused the Presidency and All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to instal its stooge with a view to paving way for the emasculation of Christians and turn the country to an Islamic state.

To perfect its plan, the PCYN claimed that the Presidency has allegedly recruited some fifth columnists to cause division among Christians with a view to scuttling the electoral process.
But the Special Adviser to the President (Media), Mr. Femi Adesina, had dismissed the allegation when a similar issue was raised on February 22 this year by the National Coordinator of Christ Redeemers Union, Dr. Ebenezer Olusola Abednego, when he argued that “President Muhammadu Buhari does not interfere in the internal affairs of any organisation.”

“It means that some Nigerians don’t know their President. Your President, Muhammadu Buhari, does not interfere in things like that; so, they need to know the person who is their President.

“The people making the allegation can’t insist that they are correct because that is the man for you and Buhari doesn’t interfere in anything. If he doesn’t interfere in state elections where his own party, the APC, is having candidates, how will he interfere in CAN elections? They don’t know their President,” Adesina said.
