Borno State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) Bishop Naga Mohammed has denied backing Shettima’s Vice President Candidacy.
Bishop Naga said the trending stories to the effect that he backed the candidate of former Governor Shettima for vice president were all false
Responding to enquiry from newsmen, Bishop Naga said “I have not granted an interview to anybody and never issued any statement. Was it not yesterday (Sunday) they said they had appointed him (Shettima)?
How come I granted interview at the APC secretariat?
“Nobody called me. No journalist called me, except when this thing happened, when the papers were carrying it viral, then people were calling me.”
“Right now, I’m somehow angry and not even composed to talk very well. The story they are carrying was in 2017 when Boko Haram was devastating Borno when Kashim Shettima was the Governor.
“They picked that story and I, being CAN chairman, they now levelled it against me. I am just framed up and I don’t even have trust speaking with journalists, including you, because I don’t know what else you will write”.
