Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, has advised the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to stick to its religious duties.
Shehu said this in response to the position of CAN that the current administration poses a threat to democracy.
Musa Asake, the General Secretary of the association, said this in reaction to herdsmen killings across the country.
But Shehu dismissed Asake’s allegation, saying the cleric could not substantiate it.
“Our attention has been drawn to reports of a press conference by the general secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Dr. Musa Asake in which he passed a judgement on the constitutionality of certain actions of the Muhammadu Buhari administration,” Shehu said.
“Unfortunately, he could not cite any valid cases of constitutional violations. President Muhammadu Buhari government poses no threat to the country’s democracy and constitution.
“There are no cases of any violation of our sacred constitution and there will be none under this president.
“The respected religious leader should stick to his religious duties and leave politics for politicians.”
