The Kwara State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Bishop Sunday Timothy Adewole, has reiterated the stand of the Christian community not to accept the “Muslim-Muslim Ticket” for the presidential position.

He made the statement when he received the former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, who came to commiserate with him on the passing of his mother-in-law, Madam Caroline Aduke Akanbi, and also to congratulate him on his new appointment as the CAN Chairman in the State.

Bishop Adewole also applauded former President of the Senate, Dr. Saraki, for his role in 2015 when he stood against the plot to foist a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket on the country.

This, he said, was because of Saraki’s understanding of the multi-cultural and multi-religious nature of Nigeria, equity and unity.

The new CAN Chairman appreciated the former Senate President for the visit and lauded the Saraki family for their immeasurable role in the development of Kwara and Nigeria.

The CAN Chairman sought his hand of fellowship in maintaining peaceful and harmonious relationship of every tribe and religion in Nigeria.

Bishop Adewole also recalled the unparalleled contribution of late elder statesman, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki, to the development of Kwara and Nigeria at large.

He prayed for the repose of the soul of Baba Oloye whose 10 years remembrance prayer holds on 14th November, 2022.

On his new position as CAN Chairman, the former Kwara State Governor and National chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, expressed total confidence in his ability to use the office for religious and human advancement.

He also noted that religious leaders have a key role to play in counselling leaders and advising them on the right decisions to take.

The visit was not only to congratulate Bishop Adewole on his appointment as the new Kwara State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), but also to commiserate with him on the passing of his mother-in-law.

Saraki charged the Bishop to take solace in the fact that she lived a fulfilled life and witnessed the glory of her offsprings.

He prayed God to grant her peaceful rest and the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
