Tension as faction plans to stop CAN congress in Gombe

A group of clergymen in Gombe State have accused the national officials of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) of causing crisis in the state chapter by allegedly imposing the present executives against the choice of the delegates who turned out to elect their legitimate leaders on the 14 December 2021 at CAN Centre.

The spokesman of the aggrieved clerics Pastor Musa Ibrahim who made the accusation Wednesday vowed that they would stop the congress scheduled by the executives to hold before Christmas as according to him, they are illegitimate leadership.

“There was serious confusion on Tuesday 14 December 2021 because of the insistence of the CAN AGS and Legal Adviser to appoint their own candidates. The legal adviser allocated Chairman to her bloc (CSN) even when the bloc contested for Secretary, while AGS, OAIC bloc appointed his Yoruba brother (OAIC) who has been in CAN since General Abacha’s regime as Secretary”. He alleged.

Pastor Musa said they are massively mobilizing other members to storm the venue of the planned congress, insisting that the meeting must not hold in that CAN Centre.

On his part, Reverend Joel Wakili, CAN C Chairman Gombe State who was elected expressed disappointment over the incident, describing it as uncalled for.

He said the other faction might have been sponsored to create confusion in Gombe State but God will take control.
