The Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) has suspended the caretaker committee chairman of its Gombe chapter over a congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

The letter of suspension came after the Caretaker Committee in Gombe State on September 6, wrote a congratulatory message which was signed by the Secretary, Senior  Apostle John Adedigba to the Minister on his promotion to the rank of Professor of Cybersecurity at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri.

CAN, in a letter signed by its General Secretary and addressed to the Gombe Caretaker Committee of the association, said the congratulatory message to the minister is tantamount to unilateral decision.

“Following the recent publications of your congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahi Pantami, we write to inform you that your actions have generated a lot of concerns amongst members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

“This action of yours in publishing and release made 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 the above, 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.

“In future, you are advised to consult and get approval from the authority of CAN national level so that we all may speak with one voice,” the letter noted.
