CAN remove Gombe Caretaker State Chairman For Congratulating Pantami On His Professorship promotion.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Thursday suspended its Gombe State Caretaker Chairman over unauthorized publications.

The Gombe State Caretaker Chairman of CAN caused a congratulatory message felicitating with the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, for his attainment of professorship saying “We are proud of your achievements as our son.”

Several Christians from the various blocks that formed CAN were miffed and lost wondering why they should identify with anyone who could identify with Pantami.

Christians and non-Christians alike had called on the Government of General Muhammadu Buhari to sack Pantami with proves that he is an established terrorist who take delight in killing Christians who he called Kaferi but the APC government said Pantami is a repentant person who did what he did as an under aged. Nigerians countered that claiming he was not under aged at 30 years while he committed the crimes against humanity with further claims that he is still into terrorism acts.

It was therefore shocking for Christians to read from the media that CAN the Christain body of Believers was claiming Pantami to be their son; being proud of his achievements and congratulating him for a phantom Professorship promotion.

Academics too criticized the so called promotion claiming a University where he never lectured could never according to academic ethics promoted him.

The Christianity apex body in Nigeria, CAN, on Thursday reacted by announcing the immediate suspension of its Gombe State Caretaker Chairman through a letter signed by it General Secretary, Barr. Daramola Joseph Bade.

The letter reads “Following the recent publications of your congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahi Pantami, we write to inform you that your action has generated a lot of concerns amongst members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

“This action of yours in publishing and release made on behalf of the Association is tantamount to unilateral decision of you and overzealousness on your part, which was done without authorization and clearance.

“It is not only provocative but undermines the CAN NEC Executive. It does not in any way represent their position.

“In view of the above, you are hereby directed to relinquish your position in Gombe CAN Executive with immediate effect and hand over all CAN’s property to your next in line in your Bloc.

“In future, you are advised to consult and get approval from the Authority of CAN National Level so that WE ALL MAY SPEAK WITH ONE VOICE Thank you.”
