CAN and PFN Did Not Endorse Any Presidential Candidate for the 2015 Election

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

Pastor Ayodele Joseph Oritsejafor, founding and Senior Pastor of Word of Life Bible Church, President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has not confirmed that PFN and CAN endorsed any presidential candidate. Therefore, the public should ignore such unfounded reports and rumours.

The spin doctors of the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) have been under pressure to attract popular support for their unpopular incumbent President, Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, PhD, before the critical presidential election on Valentine's Day February 14, 2015, because of the widespread indignation among majority of Nigerians who are disappointed by the failures of his administration since he assumed office on May 6, 2010. He has become the most polarizing political leader in the modern history of Nigeria and worsening the lingering North-South dichotomy dividing the country into a dominantly Muslim north and largely Christian south,  making the religions of Islam and Christianity and tribal bigotry to dictate the politics of national leadership.

The most glaring threat to the second term campaign of President Jonathan is his failure to guaranty the security and welfare of Nigerians who have been under incessant horrifying attacks of the ruthless Boko Haram terrorists in the north east and middle belt of Nigeria. More than 15, 000 people have been killed with more thousands injured and over one million people displaced from their homes in besieged villages and towns; scattered in different parts of the country and as refugees in the neighboring countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroon. There are also more than 40 million jobless youths who have been enraged by reports of political corruption with billions of dollars missing or unaccounted for by the administration of President Jonathan. His publicized achievements in agriculture and modern transportation have not provided the jobs they need urgently for their daily survival and welfare. Therefore, majority of them have been galvanized and mobilized to join the call for change of administration by the main opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC) and are trooping en masse to the presidential campaign rallies of Gen. Muhammad Buhari (retd), the charismatic presidential candidate of the APC who is 72 and yet attracts the youths like a rock star and the leading catalyst for the nation building of a New Nigeria.

Muhammad Buhari, a devout Muslim has chosen a highly respected Christian pastor and Law professor, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) as his running mate. The momentum of their popularity as been described as a nationwide movement like a hurricane that may end the 15 years rule of the PDP in Africa's most populous country in 2015.
