The challenge came less than 24hrs after the association disassociated itself from the alleged bishops' visit.
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has challenged the All Progressives Congress to reveal the names of pastors and Bishops that attended the unveiling of Kashim Shettima as the vice presidential candidate of the party.
Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media and Communication to the President of CAN threw the challenge while reacting to news of the report.
Shettima had boasted that 30 Bishops attended his unveiling.
He said, “Let them name the CAN officials at the programme and their offices. If they could use 2017 photos to claim that some Pastors visited Shettima and lied that Pastor E. A Adeboye has endorsed them, they could do anything.
“Our position on Muslim-Muslim ticket is irreversible. Anybody can claim anything but one thing is clear, CAN was not part of the unveiling programme of Shettima.”
The spokesperson for the Catholic Church Headquarters in Abuja, Rev. Fr. Patrick Alumuku had earlier said the bishops are not their representatives.
According to Alumuku, the way the bishops conducted themselves shows that they are fake and not Catholic Church officials.
There had been claims that the clerics were hired to attend the event to dowse the controversy on the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party.
