Fake Bishops Attend Shettima’s Unveiling in Abuja

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, confirmed Wednesday that people dressed like bishops who attended the unveiling of Kashim Shettima, immediate past governor of Borno State, and serving senator representing Borno Central senatorial district, as the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, were fake.

Rev. Joseph John Hayab, vice president of CAN in the 19 Northern States and Abuja, and its chairman in Kaduna State, told journalists in Abuja that what APC did on Wednesday was a “Nollywood movie.”

“The people we saw at the unveiling of Shettima paraded as bishops are people who did not have enough time to learn how to wear bishop garments. Take a closer look at their photo and you will see another Nollywood movie.

“CAN wonders why the desperation. First, a story was out claiming to have come from the Chairman of CAN, Borno State, only to be refuted. Secondly, there was another lie that BAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) and his running mate were on their way to meet CAN President one night. A meeting that was not true and was on a night that the CAN President was in Alabama, USA, attending Baptist World Alliance Conference of which he is the Vice President.

“Another desperation story was that they met Papa Adeboye which the RCCG later refuted. If Christians are not important, why the desperation?

“BAT is free to hire mechanics and other artisans and sew clerical garments for them. An effort that will only add to their many ropes when the political exercise is over, but will not change the need for fairness and justice that CAN is calling for.

“CAN appreciates that we are in a democracy; no need to do funny and dubious things just to prove a point because it will in the end bounce back. BAT team should simply do what is right and stop the drama.”

The desperate choice to run a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the APC presidential candidate has been widely condemned and rejected by Christian. In a tweet, Tinubu admitted that choosing Shettima was a ‘hard choice.’

“This chapter in our nation’s history demands a bold, yet pragmatic approach. In selecting Senator Shettima, I have committed myself to this path. I have made the hard choice because I believe it is the best choice.”
