CatholicFollowing a press conference by the Administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Abeokuta, Monsignor Christopher Ajala, that the Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has pulled out of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the Director Communication, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Raulph Madu, has refuted the claim.

Madu maintained that the CBCN did not pull out of CAN, and that the body was only trying to sought out some grey areas with the national Christian body.

He however mentioned that the body only withdrew temporarily from CAN, which will only last for few weeks, adding that there was no squabble between the two religious bodies.

Madu, who did not disclose the issues, said: “How can we pull out of CAN, we are just trying to iron out some issues with them, which are not palatable to us and it’s only going to last for few weeks”

“We will always be in support of the national body; some of our bishops are heading CAN in some states,” he added.
