The Presidency has reacted to a reported credited to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), alleging some of President Muhammadu Buhari’s action was threat to the democracy.
According to the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a three paragraph response to the statement created to the General Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake, said there are no cases of constitutional violation by President Buhari.
The Presidential Media Aide said, “Our attention has been drawn to reports of a press conference by 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.
“Unfortunately, he could not cite any valid cases of constitutional violations. President Muhammadu 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,” Shehu said.
