The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), says it does not regulate how pastors operate their churches.
Naija News reports that the President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle made this known while reacting to the latest allegations by wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo, Busola, against the founder of the Commonwealth Of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Busola had alleged that the COZA founder had forcefully raped her when she was young at the age of sixteen (16).
In a swift reaction, Fatoyinbo had denied the allegation, though admitted Busola once attended the same church with his family.
Reacting to the saga, Ayodele’s Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Pastor Oladeji Adebayo, said CAN does not regulates how pastors operate.
He said: “I am sorry CAN does not intervene in how churches are running. Churches belong to denominations and these are the two bodies that regulate how pastors run their ministries, not CAN. CAN deals with intrareligious matters and stands between the church and the government.”
