Apostle AdedigbaThe Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has suspended its Gombe State caretaker committee chairman, Apostle John Adedigba, for writing a congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, without the approval of the association’s National Executive Committee. The letter dated September 6 and signed by Apostle Adedigba of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Gombe, on behalf of members of the caretaker committee, congratulated the Minister on his promotion to the rank of Professor of Cybersecurity at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. The letter extolled Pantami for his great achievement describing him as a ‘son’ and prayed that he will continue to be useful to Nigerians and humanity. However, in the suspension letter dated Wednesday, September 15 and signed by its General Secretary and addressed to the Gombe Caretaker Committee of the association, CAN said the congratulatory message to the minister is tantamount to a unilateral decision. “Following the recent publications of your congratulatory message to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, we write to inform you that your actions have generated a lot of concerns amongst members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)” the letter reads. “This action of yours in publishing and release made on behalf of the association is tantamount to the unilateral decision of you and overzealousness on your part, which was done without authorization and clearance. It is not only provocative but undermines the CAN NEC Executive. It does not in any way represent their position “In view of the above, you are hereby directed to relinquish your position in Gombe CAN Executive with immediate effect and hand over all CAN’s property to your next in line in your bloc “In future, you are advised to consult and get approval from the authority of CAN national level so that we all may speak with one voice,” the letter noted.
