Pastor from Northern Nigeria break away from CAN, form new Christian group

Northern Christians under the concerned Christians of Nigeria and Northern Nigerian Christians have said recent political happenings and 'corruption' in the apex Christian body; the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has forced them to unanimously revert to what they described as the pre-independence Northern Nigerian Christian Association (NNCA).

The controversy that led to the emergency of the new CAN President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle, had been condemned by some Christian leaders from the North who accused the past CAN President, Ayo Oritsejafor, of deliberately frustrating the candidature of Rev. Jeremiah Gado of the TEKAN/ECWA bloc to prevent the emergence of a northerner.

However, in a joint press conference in Jos Rev. Luka Shehu of Concerned Christians of Nigeria and Hon. Peter Luka of Northern Nigerian Christians said the decision to revert back to the Northern Nigerian Christians Association (NNCA) became necessary following what they described as the 'travesty of justice, lies and manipulation' that led to the emergence of Rev. Supo Ayokunle as CAN President, various acts of corruption by the leadership of CAN as well as neglect of northern Christians especially in the North-East.

"Considering our common shared values and peculiarities as Christians from CAN and after wide consultation among Christian leaders, traditional rulers, youths and women, we under this auspices from the north have unanimously decided to revert to the pre-independence Northern Nigeria Christian Association," said the two groups.

Our pastors need to put their house in order.
