Security Officers Hunt Down CAN Leaders to Disrupt Election


Tension mounts in CAN as plain-clothed security officers were said to be hunting some of the CAN leaders. With less than 48 hours to the election in the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), indications emerged that the Presidency was planning to arrest it’s incumbent president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake and its director of national issues, Elder Sunday during its National Executive Council (NEC). As well as government forces who were sympathetic to certain aggrieved parties in the contest. Some key leaders in CAN were wondering why the police would be allowed to be used to arrest individuals in a purely spiritual exercise as the election of a CAN President. But this did not disrupt the plan activities despite the threats. The two-day meeting where the election would be conducted would still take place and the election will hold. Also, delegates from the five different blocs of CAN had started arriving Abuja for the scheduled NEC meeting which will determine the next direction of the umbrella body of Christians. According to the schedule, the two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) have been set aside for the election of the next CAN president and the ratification of the new CAN constitution which had been completed by a committee set up by the National Advisory Council of CAN about two years ago. Asake cried out last night that plans have reached advanced stage to conduct the election. Asake said the next CAN President will be elected by a total of 101 voters: every bloc brings 10 delegates, all the state chairmen plus the Federal Capital (FCT) making 37, all the six zonal leaders, five national directors, the president, Vice President, the General Secretary and the Treasurer.
