The appearance of the ‘men of God’ at Shettimma’s unveiling sparked controversy as the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) distanced itself from the so-called bishops, saying the men had been hired to give a semblance of acceptance of the Muslim-Muslim APC. ticket.

The vice-president of CAN, 19 Northern States and Abuja, and its president in Kaduna State, the Reverend Joseph John Hayab, had declared that the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was free to “hire mechanics and other craftsmen and sew”. office clothes for them”, such an effort would only add to their many woes, and it would not change the need for “fairness and justice”.

But Bayo Onanuga, Tinubu’s campaign media and communications director, had insisted the men had not been hired.
