The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has named eight members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the fresh list of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
Naija News reports that the ruling party on Wednesday night released an updated list of its campaign council, which would be chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
It is understood that the eight CAN members are opposed to the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling APC and their inclusion in the party’s campaign council has generated a lot of reactions.
Those included are Assistant General Secretary of CAN, Apostle Biodun Sanyaolu, who was appointed as Assistant Coordinator; Lagos State CAN Chairman, Stephen Adegbite (member); Director of Legal and Public Affairs, Comfort Chigbue (member); and Testimony Onifade, former Personal Assistant to immediate past CAN President, Samson Ayokunle (member).
Others are Victor Ivoke, Personal Assistant to Rev. Daniel Okoh, current President of CAN (member); CAN former Director of Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Samuel (member), and Prof. Para-Mallam (member).
It was gathered that the tenure of the CAN officials would elapse in ten days time, but some of them have applied for reappointment.
