Crisis in CAN Leadership over alleged N40m Cash Gift from Buhari



Crisis in CAN Leadership over alleged N40m Cash Gift from Buhari | BellaNaijaThe National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has accused the leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) of receiving the sum of N40 million from President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a memo obtained by Vanguard, the NCEF alleged that on CAN’s visit to the President in November 2017, they had received the sum of N40 million as “transportation money,” which CAN themselves had claimed to be N25 million.

The NCEF is requesting an investigation into how the money was shared. It is unethical that they accepted the money from the president, they said.

On the 10th of November, 2017, a delegation of CAN, led by the President, Rev. Dr. Ayokunle, met with President Muhammadu Buhari and, after the visit, collected ‘transportation’ money.

While informed sources claim it was N40 million, CAN officials insist it was N25 million and it was alleged to have been shared by somebody who is not an official of the National Secretariat of CAN.

NCEF insists on proper investigation of how the money was shared and how much each person received.

In addition, NCEF insists on proper sanction of every Christian leader that took part in sharing money from President Buhari. It is unethical and very insensitive for Christian leaders to collect money from the man every Christian is aware has compromised security to the detriment of the Church.

Responding to the allegation, the association’s President Samson Olasupo Ayokunle said there is no truth to them.

He described the allegations as a “catalogue of lies,” saying:

There is no truth in what they are alleging. No truth at all in all the allegations. If they are after sanity in CAN, is it on the pages of newspaper that they intend to settle any dispute? Do Muslims behave like that about their leaders?

    Shame on you, CAN. I am even more disappointed at the embarrassment spewed by the president, so the elders should cover your sins, ehh? Why bring Muslims in the narrative?

    These days, I just go to church to join hands with believers to pray for myself. Most of these “men of God” are not it at all.

    Everyone should work out their salvation with fear and trembling. Don’t look at other humans, just look at God because men will disappoint.

    Why did he give them 40M naira? And from what account? That to me is the main issue!!!
    It’s obviously bribe for them to cover him when it comes to reelection.
    I’m done with these people.
