CAN has become a tool in the hands of politicians, says cleric

Isaac Itodo, general overseer of the Ark of Covenant Total Life Ministries, says the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has been fraternising with political opponents of the present administration in heating the polity in Nigeria at the detriment of uniting the body of Christ in Nigeria.


The cleric stated this in a chat with journalists in the wake of the killing of Lawal Andimi, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika local government area of Adamawa state.

Isaac Itodo said the leadership of CAN has compromised its position as a body of Christ to lead the children of God by availing itself as a willing tool for politicians.

“The Prophecy from God is that from the time of Ayo Oristejafor as the Chairman of CAN, the leadership of the association was compromised when they started dinning and winning with politicians and also using CAN as a political tool for settling political scores,” he said.


“As strange as this may sound, the revelation from God is that the leadership of CAN as it was engaged in too many activities that brought the body of Christ into disrepute in return for a plate of porridge.”

When asked what he meant by activities that brought the body of Christ into disrepute, the clergy stated that some of the decisions taken by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan were not in the interest of the country and instead of the leadership of CAN to speak out, they supported him by playing the religious card.

“The CAN was a willing tool used by the Goodluck Jonathan administration to hide the killings and mismanagement of public funds meant for the procurement of arms and ammunition to prosecute the Boko Haram war in North-East Nigeria,” he said.


“God works in mysterious ways. Ways we mortals cannot comprehend. For in Romans 1:18, it stated that “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.

“It is ironic that these leaders have forgotten so soon on about the wrath of God in Ezekiel 25:17 that states how God will “execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon them.”
