Leave Adeboye Alone, Confront Government, CAN tells Protesters.




The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged secular musicians who recently protested against the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, to direct their complaints to the government.
The association stated this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by its National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Samuel Vondip.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some protesters, including Charly Boy, Idris Abdulkareem and Baba Fryo on Monday staged a peaceful protest at the RCCG Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The protesters called on Mr Adeboye to speak up against what they termed the injustice in the country.
”While we appreciate the concern of the protesters over the issues they raised and the call for a better nation, we strongly believe that singling out one of our leaders and members, to say the least, is unfair.
”The entire exercise, in our view, was ill-motivated. The people who staged this insulting protest against a highly revered servant of God in the person of Pastor Adeboye are totally ignorant of the operations of CAN.
”It needs to be known to all that Adebayo had addressed the press on several occasions, saying that as a ‘man under authority’, he cannot speak on issues that CAN or PFN have spoken about,” Mr Vondip said.
He said that any protest against Mr Adeboye would be viewed by CAN as a systematic insult against church leaders in Nigeria.
