N7bn Jonathan Bribe: CAN Blasts Musa Dikwa, says his Movement is Fake
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has debunked the lingering allegation that its leaders collected N7 billion from President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign for his re-election.
Instead, the association called on security agencies to investigate the unregistered Voice of Northern Christian Movement and its Executive Director, Musa Dikwa, who authenticated the raging allegation made by Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Director General of Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation to unravel the authenticity or otherwise of the N7bn bribe.
Dr. Musa Asake, General Secretary of CAN, who denied the allegation in a statement on Friday in Abuja, said that the allegation is intended by its sponsors to throw the country into serious crisis.
Asake linked the allegation to those using different Christian organisations to perpetrate fraud in the country.
He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) had fallen into wrong hands because his endorsement for the March 28 general election by Northern Christian Leaders Eagle-Eye Forum led by one Aminchi Habu was fraudulent.
The statement read, “We are therefore calling on security agencies to investigate the activities of the Voice of Northern Christian Movement and Musa Dikwa himself to unravel the N7bn mystery which is intended by its sponsors to throw the country into serious crisis.
“For the avoidance of doubt, CAN has no knowledge of any N7bn transaction as alleged by Musa Dikwa who claims to be the Executive Director of a non-existent group, Voice of Northern Christian Movement.
“CAN is not a political party, let alone getting involved in partisan politics. Christians who are members of CAN belong to different political parties. It is therefore surprising to hear that CAN is campaigning for one candidate.
“Revered men of God, including the CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor; Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel and Pastor Bosun Emmanuel (Secretary-General of Naational Christian Elders Forum) are too upright to be linked with any such deal.”
