We Are Ready To Take Over From Oritsejafor – Northern CAN Replies Group by catchfun: 7:42am On Feb 23, 2016


The Northern States Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Monday reacted to an allegation by the Christ Redeemers’ Union (CRU) that President Muhammadu Buhari was planning to install a northerner as CAN President.
Treasurer of the Northern CAN, Pastor Haruna Karatu said it would not be abnormal for a northerner to become CAN President, warning against accusing Buhari wrongly.
“There is nothing wrong with having a Northerner as CAN President; after all CAN started from the North. The Presidency of CAN is not for the South only.
“Buhari has nothing to do with CAN, it is just a blackmail by mischief makers who want to drag the name of the President into their gimmicks,” he said in Kaduna.
Similarly, the immediate past Chairman of the North-East CAN, Rev. Shuaibu Byal recalled that “CAN started in the north in 1964 and became national in 1976.
“Since then, Northern Christians have never shown interest in the leadership of CAN, apart from John Onaiyekan who is from Kogi State.
“All we do is to support anybody, in the believe that Christians are one. We back any president regardless of tribe or region.”
He pointed out that: “Obasanjo was President of Nigeria when Peter Akinlola became the President of CAN, both from Ogun State. Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor became CAN President from the Niger Delta region at the time Goodluck Jonathan was President of this country.
“So, it is unfortunate for any group to come out and say President Muhammadu Buhari is trying to install a Northern as CAN President. That is a divisive language and we don’t encourage such.
“We have Igbo people who became CAN chairmen in the Northern States. We supported Ayo’s emergence as President, so if one of us wants to succeed him, how is it a crime?” Byal quipped

Well, If a northern Christian has never held the position, Then it's Okay to zone it to them. But it shouldn't be politicised.

Northern CAN should first tackle insurgency and the threats and suffering experienced in d hands of their Muslim neighbours before they start talking about holding CAN leadership position.

For now, it's still going South

Why don't we say that niger delta should tackle militancy and oil bunkering before contesting for presidency
Or the igbos should tackle kidnapping and drug smuggling before demanding for presidency of Nigeria
Or better still the yorubas should tackle ritual killings and yahoo plus before contesting for presidency.

I think there is a lot of misinformation about CAN, surprisingly it was even the northern Christians who supported Pastor Ayo to emerge as CAN president due to the role he played in the crisis in Jos some years back when he was PFN President. The Christians in the north were even the one who insisted that Pastor Ayo should be CAN President despite the opposition from Onaiyekan and the Catholic Church.

Its a pity what CAN has become today, a once respected and true National body has now be made to look so partisan and politicized along tribal lines.

Can is supposed to be a spiritual body and it is unthinkable that it's leadership is sort through political means. If we serve a true God who has given us the holy spirit then leadership within CAN should be without stress, campaign, zoning and gerrymandering!

We're so skewed in Nigeria, this concept of rotation has eroded competence off our socio-political landscape and it is gradually making way into our religious sphere.
Re: We Are Ready To Take Over From Oritsejafor – Northern CAN Replies Group by Progressive01(m): 9:21am On Feb 23, 2016
Great!! These guys just spoke my mind.

“Obasanjo was President of Nigeria when Peter Akinlola became the President of CAN, both from Ogun State.

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor became CAN President from the Niger Delta region at the time Goodluck Jonathan was President of this country.

“So, it is unfortunate for any group to come out
and say President Muhammadu Buhari is trying
to install a Northern as CAN President. That is a
divisive language and we don’t encourage such.

“We have Igbo people who became CAN
chairmen in the Northern States. We supported
Ayo’s emergence as President, so if one of us
wants to succeed him, how is it a crime?”
The same thing I pointed out when I read that idiotic press release by those fools yesterday. I was so irritated honestly.

Progressive01:
When the crooked junkie, Oritsejafor, of all people was foisted on Christians, no one raised issues like this (remember both didn't just come from the South, they are "brothers" from states sharing boundaries), today, they've turned the leadership of CAN to a North vs South / PDP vs APC thing.

CAN for me is dead and buried.

Its a pity that many people especially from south think all northerners are Hausas and all northerners are muslims.
Its this kind of mentality by illiterates that cause bad blood amongst us
