The Presidency on Tuesday night rejected assertions it claimed were made by the General Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Dr. Musa Asake, who suggested that President Muhammadu Buhari may have infringed on the country’s constitution through some of his actions.
According to a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, President Buhari posed no threat to the constitution of the country.
The Presidency advised the cleric to concentrate on his religious duties and leave politics to politicians.
The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to reports of a press conference by General Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Dr. Musa Asake in which he passed a judgment on the constitutionality of certain actions of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
“Unfortunately, he could not cite any valid cases of constitutional violations.
“President Muhammadu government poses no threat to the country’s democracy and Constitution.
“There are no cases of any violation of our sacred constitution and there will be none under this President.
“The respected religious leader should stick to his religious duties and leave politics for politicians.
