The Archbishop of Kwara Province of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev Israel Amoo, said the Church had dissociated itself from the purported endorsement of a governorship candidate and political party in the next Saturday governorship/State Assembly election.
A statement personally signed by him, Amoo read, “The province comprised of eight other respected bishops that constituted the province wishes to dissociate themselves from the misleading and all ill-calculated endorsement of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State by CAN.
“That the purported endorsement was conceived, concerted and given birth to by a charlatan whose stock in trade is to denigrate CAN and its leadership by dragging it into partisan politics.
The statement noted that there was no time that CAN as a body either clandestinely or overtly met to endorse the said party as a party of choice for the teeming Christian community in the state.
”The governor has neither met nor requested for an endorsement of the Christian community up-till now, hence the glitz of media endorsement by CAN was not only shocking, but devilish and ungodly,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, Reverend Father Raph Ajewole, the Director of Ecumenical of CAN, has also described the posting of the purported endorsement on the social media as ungodly, evil and satanic.
