CAN, PFN congratulatory letters to Tinubu ‘misplaced’ — Christian groups


A coalition of Christian Youth Groups, Tuesday, described the congratulatory letters extended to President Bola Tinubu, by the Christian Association of Nigeria and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria as misguided and a mere expression of goodwill, and not acceptance of the election that is not credible and couldn’t have produced a credible outcome.

The group, in a statement jointly signed by Nath Bitrus and Agape Enioluwa, Coordinator and Secretary, respectively, maintained that the February 25th presidential election was marred by gross and widespread violence, in addition to rigging, malpractices and other irregularities, as testified by both local and foreign observers, including the European Union.

The group, however, said it wasn’t in support of the congratulatory letters, thus questioning the rationale behind congratulating an administration that hit the ground running with widespread hardship and suffering for the people in less than 24 hours of its inauguration.

“What is there to congratulate? Are they congratulating the government for visiting untold hardship, starvation and even death on the people?

“For the records, the Christian Community are not in doubt about those who hold the interest of the nation at heart, those who have taken an unshakable stance for truth, equity and justice, those who have continued to speak against the evils being unleashed on the church of Christ, and the greater majority of Nigerians.

“These are the people we hold in high esteem, and both God in heaven and history on earth shall be kind to them. So, we find those smuggled congratulatory messages misplaced, misguided, provocative and treasonable to the body of Christ in particular, and to all lovers of democracy and justice in Nigeria.”

Furthermore, the group likened those who rode to power on a stolen mandate through widespread electoral fraud, to endorsing illegality and granting legitimacy to illegitimacy.
