Dr. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), in a statement on Thursday said that the letter of endorsement written to Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose for his 2019 presidential ambition by Rev. Dr. Musa Asake, the General Secretary of CAN, was done in his personal capacity and not on behalf of CAN.
According to him, some prominent Christian stakeholders have been making calls to him, asking for clarifications as they never discussed that.
CAN President noted that it was his personal letter and has nothing to do with the association.
“There was no time CAN or the President of CAN authorized such a letter. It was the personal opinion of the General Secretary. However, anyone who wants to run for any political office in Nigeria has our goodwill in CAN and we would be praying for them if he or she is well qualified to contest, including the respectable Governor Fayose.
“Our prayer to God is to always get a godly, a detribalized and peace loving leader presiding over the affairs of the country,” the statement read.
