A Borno-based Pastor Kallamu Musa-Dikwa, Executive Director, Voice of Northern Christian Movement, who spoke on phone from Borno Thursday said the alleged money given to pastors by the president was actually N7 billion and not N6 billion as alleged by governor Amaechi.
According to Vanguard, Dikwa in Kaduna on Thursday alleged that the said money was channeled through the Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN. He added that Pentecostal Bishops including Oyedepo also collected their shares.
“It was N7bn that was given to the CAN leadership by President Goodluck Jonathan. They(CAN) later disbursed N3m to the State Chairmen of the CAN.
“The money was handed over to the CAN Leadership on 26th January, 2015.”
“Actually, President Jonathan is using CAN President, and it was the CAN President who collected the monies and shared N3m to the CAN executives in each state.
“And some Pentecostal Bishops also collected their share. Actually, the money is not N6bn, it is N7bn. This is what I know. One of the CAN officials from Abuja told me that they have collected the money. The corruption in CAN is terrible. They are corrupting the body of Christ because of money.
“They are now threatening Christians in Borno State that they will deal with anybody, who refuses to vote for Jonathan. And the CAN officials are now campaigning that if Buhari emerges President, he will Islamise Nigeria; and that Osinbajo collected monies from Islamic world; and that the same Osinbajo will resign soon after Buhari wins to give way for Tinubu to emerge Vice President.”
