The Christaian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Oyo state chapter, has debunked reports that it has endorsed the candidature of the All Progressives Congress(APC) governorship candidate and senatorial candidate for Oyo South, Chief Bayo Adelabu and Governor Abiola Ajimobi respectively.
The body stated this at a news conference on Friday, at the CAN secretariat, Ijokodo, Ibadan.
The State Secretary of the association, Rev. Canon Olusegun Babatunde, who addressed newsmen on behalf of the association, said the association did not endorse any candidate or political party.
According to him,” we did not endorse any candidate or political party. We only pray for them when they came and we told them we will continue to pray for them.”
Reacting to insinuations that the body is divided, he said ” there is no division. CAN is one and we stand as one.”
He urged Christians to go out and exercise their civic rights tomorrow and on March 9, adding ” it is their right and they should go out and exercise it for candidates of their choice.”
