Group Insists Buhari Is Trying To Impose Next CAN Leader, AS Presidency Says We Have No Interest In It

A group of Christians, under the aegis of Christ’s
Redeemers’ Union, has said President Buhari is interested in imposing the next
CAN president as Ayo Oritsejafor prepares to hand over in June, 2016 due to the
end of his tenure. They say the president intends to carry that out and impose
a Northerner for his selfish reasons.
In a statement released on Sunday in Abuja by the National
Director of CRU, Dr. Abednego Olusola, the statement said Christians would
resist any plan by the Presidency to install a puppet as CAN President.
“A top official in the Presidency, who is spearheading the
campaign, has started deploying resources for logistics towards ensuring the
emergence of a church leader in the northern part of the country believed to be
friendly with Buhari. Continue…

“The government officials funding some religious leaders in
the North have been recruited as foot soldiers to perfect the strategy. There
is tension now in CAN and the action of the Presidency has polarised the
association along North-South dichotomy, as northern religious members are being
lobbied to support the plot,” part of the statement read.
But the Presidency through the Special Adviser to the
President, Media and Communications, Femi Adeshina has said, there is no iota
of truth in the claim, saying those alleging that do not know their President.
“It means that some Nigerians don’t know their President.
Your President, Muhammadu Buhari, does not interfere in things like that; so,
they need to know the person who is their President.

“The people making the allegation can’t insist that they are
correct because that is the man for you and Buhari doesn’t interfere in
anything. If he doesn’t interfere in state elections where his own party, the
APC, is having candidates, how will he interfere in CAN elections? They don’t
know their President,” Adeshina said.
