The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bauchi state chapter, has endorsed Bauchi state governor, Muhammed Abubakar for re-election next year.
CAN made this known in Bauchi on Wednesday, December 26, through its chairman, Rev. Joshua Maina when the Christian communities of the state paid Christmas visit on the state governor.
“The essence of Christmas is to worship God Almighty and to thank him for the hope he has given us amidst our hopelessness. We are here today to worship the Lord with you and to thank God for the leadership we have in this state. Your Excellency, you are the one that the Almighty has bestowed in Bauchi state as our only leader and we have come back to tell you that we appreciate what God is doing through you.
“This is devoid of politics but a clear reality from the word of God. In essence, we once again want to declare the unquestionable loyalty and support of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bauchi state to your governance. All of us know what we were passing through in the past. But to an extent, we have even forgotten that there had been massacres and killings during worships. To the glory of God, it has become history now and that has become possible because some people became committed to the reality of securing the lives and properties of people.
“Your Excellency, you are one of those people. And one evident example is the fact that Bauchi state is becoming one of the most populous states in the Northeast because it is the safest and one of the safest in the country.”
