Serious Tension Rocks CAN Over Alleged Plot To Remove Vice President

Published

on

Anxiety and tension have enveloped the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over alleged moves by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to remove the association’s Vice President, Prof. Joseph Otubu, Daily Sun reports.

It was gathered that today’s emergency NEC meeting was meant to discuss other issues that affect CAN, but, an insider said CAN’s President, Dr. Supo Ayokunle, allegedly altered the agenda to focus on the vice president.

Ayokunle and Otubu have been at loggerheads over alleged “sell out” of CAN by its president and ‘hobnobbing’ with the Federal Government, which had allegedly activated state security apparatus against Christians in Nigeria.

There were media reports, over the weekend, that NEC meeting, scheduled to hold today was to deliberate on the dispute between the two CAN leaders and, possibly, resolve the rift.

Prof. Otubu, had, in a petition to NEC, accused Ayokunle of financial mismanagement and maladministration.

NEC responded to the allegations by setting up a committee to look into the petition, as demanded by the petitioner.

The committee was said to have invited all individuals involved to appear before it with evidences, to substantiate the allegations and defend. CAN leadership said Otubu was the only person involved in the matter who did not appear before the committee.

He was said to have deliberately, or otherwise, disregarded all invitations extended to him by the committee, but, only responded when the report of the committee was released.

Meanwhile, the media aide to CAN President, Bayo Oladeji, told Daily Sun that the alleged plot to remove Otubu was untrue.

He said: “It is totally untrue. The kite could have been flown by Otubu’s loyalists, to pre-empt the possible outcome of the NEC meeting.”

When contacted, Otubu, said the NEC has no constitutional power to remove him as CAN’s vice president and “all their efforts would be in futility.

“Please disregard the media report and the alleged rumour. Constitutionally, they have no power to unseat me,” he said.

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
