Bishop Kayode bombs CAN for rejecting Tinubu/Shettima ticket

The National Coordinator of Integrity Ministers International Ministries, Bishop Kayode Williams has slammed the leadership of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for rejecting the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Williams said there is nothing wrong in the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, picking a Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

In an interview with The News Nigeria, the cleric stated that his ministry will be “Supporting Tinubu, and we are going to work and pray hard because it is a directive from God.”

He said: “If you look at Bola Ahmed Tinubu, if you look at his antecedents you will know that he’s a man who always studies very hard. Before he makes decisions and even when he starts because we are following him.

“But God has decided to ask us that His candidate from heaven to earth is Tinubu and that we as Integrity Ministers International Ministry should support him and collaborate with him, so we are all round moving with him to know the steps he’s taking.

“So when he got to the issue of a Muslim-Muslim ticket, Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not just jump into it. As a strategist, he asked somebody to hold on for him until he was able to consult widely, looking at the implications and consequences that will follow if he chooses the wrong vice president. At the end of the day, he came up to tell the nation that he was ready, that he is settling for a Muslim like himself: Kassim Shettima.

“Immediately there was uproar as citizens started reacting even gentlemen of the press were probing the funniest and of it, all is the religious body led by the Christian Association of Nigeria a highly respected body of Christendom in Nigeria.

“And they were also trying to make sure that they do it; that look you have to think well, which is not bad advice.

“But the greatest insult to Nigerians is that CAN categorically said Christians must not vote for anybody that picked a Muslim-Muslim ticket. Is that from God? Is that not too emotional? Does that not make them look like they have sympathy for other parties? I do not think that is the duty of CAN. Of course, CAN is seen as an umbrella body of Christians but it is not all Christians that are members of CAN.
