… Says handiwork of mischief makers, desperate politicians

NEWSDAILYNIGERIA: The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State Chapter has described as fake, a letter making the rounds of its purported endorsement of a particular gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna state for the Saturday 11, March election.

CAN frowned at the fake statement noting that it can only be the imagination of desperate politicians bent on hoodwinking the people against freely voting the candidates of their choice.

In a Disclaimer issued on Tuesday, via its Secretary, Rev Caleb Ma’aji, CAN further urged the police to do the needful and bring to justice those behind the mischief.

” The attention of the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State Chapter has been drawn to a fake letter circulating on Social Media and other platforms in the name of CAN pretending that the letter was written and signed by the CAN Chairman, Rev Joseph John Hayab.

” CAN want the public to note the following: The letterhead with the fake press statement is a counterfeit with a made-up office address, and fake stories, and carries a fabricated signature of the Chairman.

” In CAN’s constitution, it was the duty of the CAN Secretary to write letters for circulation and not the Chairman. The wording of the letter is not from CAN.

” This letter disclaiming the fake letter is on CAN’s original letterhead which is different from the counterfeit letter The said meeting and oath-taking mentioned in the fake letter only exist in the wildest imagination of the writer and are false.

” Accordingly, the firm position of CAN Kaduna state on the fake letter is that: Christians and the general public should kindly disregard the fake letter as it is the handy work of mischief makers desperate to fuel a crisis between Muslims and Christians in the state.

‘ CAN request the police to investigate the source of the fake letter and bring the impersonator(s) to face the full wrath of the law.

” CAN understand that the authors of the false press statement are desperate and they aim to confuse the electorates in the state who are resilient to choose whom they want to be the next governor.

” Finally, CAN thanks the Christendom and the general public in the state for their resolve to vote in leaders with a willingness to work for unity and peace ensuring equity and justice, regardless of religious or ethnic background and calls on all eligible voters to come out en mass to vote during the gubernatorial elections on Saturday, 11th March 2023.

“CAN further appeal for calm and tolerance to guarantee peaceful conduct of the election” the Disclaimer added.
