The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has directed its Gombe State Caretaker Chairman, Rev. Sunday Congo, to relinquish his position in Gombe CAN executive, over his congratulatory message to the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

Apostle John Adedigba, CAN State Secretary in Gombe, in a letter on behalf of all the members of the caretaker committee congratulated the Minister on his recent “promotion to the rank of a Professor of Cyber Security” by the Governing Council of Federal University of Technology, Owerri, saying they were “proud” of Pantami as a “son”.

However, CAN in a letter by Joseph Daramola, its General Secretary, dated September 15 2021, titled: ‘Letter of Suspension’, sent to CAN caretaker committee chairman in Gombe, stated that the congratulatory letter was issued without the approval of the association’s National Executive Committee.

The letter partly reads: “Following the recent publications of your congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami, CAN writes to inform you that your action has generated a lot of concerns amongst members of the Christian Association of Nigeria.


“This action of yours in publishing on behalf of the association is tantamount to unilateral decision of you and overzealousness on your part, which was done without authorization and clearance.”

“It is not only provocative but undermines the CAN NEC executive. It does not in any way represent their position.

“In view of this, you are hereby directed to relinquish your position in Gombe CAN executive with immediate effect and hand over all CAN’s property to your next in line in your bloc.”
