The Christian Organisation of Nigeria (CON), a group comprising pastors and bishops, has endorsed Abdulaziz Yari, a former governor of Zamfara state, for the position of senate president.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja, on Thursday, Blessing Fashola, a bishop of the Celestial Church, said Yari has the capacity to be the senate president.

Fashola said a Christian must not be nominated as senate president, adding that the group has not seen a senate president hopeful like Yari.

“The hallowed chambers of the senate is where Nigeria must speak as one united and indivisible entity, hence every religious, ethnic and racial division must be highly discouraged,” he said.


“After a critical assessment of all the contestants irrespective of their religious divide, we have chosen to endorse Abdulaziz Yari because he is the most capable.

“CON is apolitical and does not share the myopic reasoning that a Christian must be endorsed because we do not see any Christian from the lot contesting that is more capable than Sen Yari.

“We must admit that what the country needs at this point are leaders with capacity, regardless of ethnic and religious affiliations. Nigeria needs leaders that understand the dynamic nature of the country, which can only be brought about through hands-on experience in governance.


“Senator Yari’s credentials speak volumes of a man on a mission to contribute to sustainable growth and development. He has demonstrated competence and capacity and has built bridges across the divide.”

Fashola said the north-west should be allowed to produce the senate president.
