Atilade calls for peace in CAN’s presidential election
The Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South West, Archbishop Magnus Atilade, has reacted to his disqualification as one of the contestants to the exalted office of CAN President at the primary election conducted by the South-West body of the Organisation of Africa Instituted Churches (OAIC), and remarked that the will of God would prevail.
In a swift reaction to the primary election which produced the General Evangelist of Motailatu Cherubim and Seraphim Worldwide (MCSCW), Elder Joseph Otubu as the zone’s nominee, some members of the South-West body kicked against the disqualification of Atilade who is the current Chairman of the body, on the account that he is over 70 years.
The aggrieved members did not only perceive the conduct of the election as one carried out in a bad faith but described Atilade’s disqualification as unconstitutional and a development alien to the CAN constitution.
In the protest letter written by the concerned members and addressed to the National President, OAIC, Most Elder Apostle Napoleon Emuchay, the members in the South-West said that the South-West Zone was supposed to exhibit justice and fair play, the truth and righteousness in the conduct of the election and asserted that Atilade was the most preferred candidate for South-West OAIC slot.
The petitioners have therefore appealed to OAIC to nullify the election and not to forward the nominated candidate’s name to the central body for final election since the zonal election that produced him was a perverted process.
