CAN’s Director of National Issues, Bishop Stephen Adegbite, also called on Nigerians to disregard the report.

According to Punch, Adegbite also said “It has come to our notice that it is in the media that our secretariat wrote a letter endorsing the candidature of Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State for President come 2019.

“This is a farce and should be completely disregarded by all and sundry.

“CAN, as we all know, is the umbrella body of all Christians in Nigeria; so, how on earth can the organisation come out to support or endorse the candidature of anyone?

“What we do as a body is to pray to God to choose leaders that will do His will and bring comfort to His people through good governance and counsel where necessary. We don’t endorse candidates, we have never done that and we do not intend to start that now.

“We urge all Christians to continue to pray for our country, Nigeria, and for the leadership at the helm of affairs today to succeed in delivering the dividends of democracy to all Nigerians not minding their ethnic or religious colouration.”

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently declared that Governor Ayo Fayose’s presidential ambition does not have the blessing of the party.
