In the Ekiti Rigging Rape that was secretly recorded –

Muslim Obaniko was clearly heard telling that the Army General: I
am here on an assignment for the President and failure is not an
option. I am the one who will sit on your promotion… if by tomorrow
evening I am a happy man, the sky is your limit.

Ayo Fayose was clearly heard saying to the Army General: Why are
your boys disarming Policemen who are working for us? I got a call from
the Chief of Army Staff, that the president said he should call me… I
told you any vehicle you see that sticker should be allowed to pass,
they are working for us… the police is working for us…don’t stop
them. Why are your boys disarming them?

But today, these men are denying that they planned and rigged the Ekiti election.

So, the denial game continues –
After a pastor revealed how respected Christian leaders are collecting
bribes all because of election, the Christian Association of has
denied the alleged N7bn given to its president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor,
by President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign for his re-election, as
alleged by Pastor Musa Dikwa, executive director of the Voice of
Northern Christian Movement.

, in a statement signed by its secretary-general, Rev. Musa Asake,
said that the Christians association is not a political party and dose
not get involved in partisan politics, saying that who are members of
CAN belong to different political parties, and it is therefore
surprising to hear that CAN is campaigning for one presidential

Asake said that, ordinarily, they would have ignored what he described
as “baseless and worthless” allegation, but they could not ignore it
presently, because of the vulnerable public which believes in anything,
no matter how incredible the source could be, especially in this era of

Asake said: “For the avoidance of doubt, CAN has no knowledge of any
N7bn transaction as alleged by Musa Dikwa who claims to be the executive
director of a non-existent group, Voice of Northern Christian Movement.

“Revered men of God, including CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, ,
Bishop David Oyedepo of Winner Chapel and Pastor Bosun Emmanuel,
secretary-general of National Christian Elders Forum, are too upright to
be linked with any such deal. CAN is, therefore, not surprised to see
Musa Dikwa doing a yeoman’s job the next day through his allegations.
This is the hand of Esau but voice of Jacob.”

CAN said the allegation by Dikwa was master-minded by those who were not
happy with their recent press statement in which they denounced the
endorsement of the presidential candidate of the APC, General Muhammadu
Buhari by a group of people using the name of different Christian
organisations to perpetrate fraud.

“We still insist that Buhari has fallen into wrong hands, because his
endorsement for the March 28 general election by Northern Christian
Leaders Eagle-Eye Forum led by Aminchi Habu is fraudulent.

“We are, therefore, calling on security agencies to commence
investigation into the activities of this Voice of Northern Christian
Movement and Musa Dikwa to unravel the N7bn mystery which is intended by
their sponsors to throw the country into serious crisis.

“We repeat, for emphasis, that neither Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Bishop
David Oyedepo, Pastor Bosun Emmanuel and CAN was given any money by the
Presidency, let alone N7bn. The allegation is the height of mischief and

“Unfortunately, our psyche as a nation has been bastardised and abused
by the institutionalised corruption introduced by successive military
rulers (in uniform and out of uniform) that we no longer believe that
anyone can speak the truth without financial inducement or
gratification. Fortunately, there are still people in the nation who act
without financial inducement,” CAN stated.
