2023: We did not endorse anybody - CAN

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Plateau State has denied endorsing any governorship candidate in the state and emphasised the need for members to make use of their PVCs and vote for the person who has the interest of the state at heart and would demonstrate selfless leadership to the people.

The State Chairman of CAN, Fr. Polycarp Lubo, made the stance known on Tuesday during a parley with the gubernatorial candidates where they presented their intentions and also signed a peace pact, to maintain decorum during and after the elections.

The cleric, in his speech, commended the gubernatorial candidates for honouring the invitation and reiterated that though CAN is not a political party, it is CAN’s job to support government and ensure when a leader derails, the leader’s attention is drawn for correction to be made.

His words, ‘Our job is to support the government and when you derail, we draw your attention.

“Take for example the Jaiz Bank issue; about 85% of the people were not happy. We are here to help you to be a better leader for the people of the State.

“CAN have not taken sides with any candidate, we only ask the people to make their PVCs ready for use so you don’t grumble at the outcome.

“CAN is looking for the person with the interests of the state at heart, who will do the work and forget about himself.

“This is a special day for us, we have called their attention to come so we can hear from them.
