Borno State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman Bishop Mohammed Naga denied endorsing the selection of the Ec governor of the state, Sen Kashim Shettima as running-mate to the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Bishop Naga denied granting an interview on the APC vice presidential candidate.
“I didn’t speak to any journalist, media outfit or even any social media user. I didn’t endorse or applaud any selection. The report is the fabrication of the reporters and the organisation to cause more tension among our people,” he said.
“I couldn’t have made comment so quickly on an issue which is of interest. That report was done in bad faith,” he declared.
Some youths said to be angered by the purported endorsement on Monday, threatened to protest at the CAN office.
