Oritsejafor: Eyieyien Urges Christians To Respond To el-Rufai’s Accusations


A senatorial aspirant for Edo Central senatorial district, Mr. Egheomhanre Eyieyien, yesterday, urged Christians to respond to recent outbursts of the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, concerning President of Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

Eyieyien noted in a statement, yesterday, that El-Rufai remains the National General Secretary of All Progressives Congress, APC, and some people listen to him.

“CAN cannot and should not ignore El Rufai’s outbursts because lies have a way of being perceived as truth when often repeated. El-Rufai has taken up a crusade against CAN President, Pastor Oritsejafor and has said several damaging things.

“He claims he knows the person that bought the jet which members of Word of Life Bible Church, Warri, Delta State, contributed money to buy as a gift for Pastor Oritsejafor to celebrate his birthday and his 40th year in ministry.”

Eyieyien said that the umbrella body of Christians in the country should challenge El-Rufai to disclose who he says actually provided the funds.

“How can such an issue be ignored by CAN, when it calls to question the integrity of the official leader of Christians in Nigeria?

Eyieyien added; “How can El-Rufai say that the President of CAN is the ‘propaganda spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party’ and some people cannot see the agenda at play? Is the CAN President a politician? Is he a member of any political party?”


  1. Mr man stop yearning nonsense , you people are yet to explain to us why the Catholics decided to pull out of CAN, oh I remember it was only Catholic churches that were targeted in the north, and that stops When azazi and yakowa died in a plane crash. you ignite a fire and it will consume you all.

  2. Why did the Catholic church pull out of CAN? I once asked this question and instead of getting an answer, I only got insults. Another question is: How many times did we see the Sultan in Aso Rock when Yar-Adua was president? The Catholic church was the first to make this observation so, El-rufai was precise and on point.

  3. Christains Are Not Like Others We Hv A Way Of Doing Things We Dont Talk When Others Are Talking To Make Us Talk Bec We Are Not Confused We Are Not Follow Follow Mumus We Hv The Holy Spirit Nd He Is At Work In Us If He Says Anything Against The Body Of Christ Jesus Will Answer Him

  4. I do not see where el-Rufai made reference to CAN or even christians for that matter.You are just trying to instigate poeple against Rufai.Let Oritsejafor answer to the issues raised and you can also tell Nigerians how much you contributed in procuring the Jet.
