Bishop urges EFCC to investigate CAN, TAN over campaign funds


Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Communion, Kaduna, the Most Reverend Josiah Idowu-Fearon, spoke at the 20th synod of the church.
The theme of the Synod was  “A New Look At Holiness”, which was taken from the book of Leviticus 19: 1-4 and 11-14.
He said: “Nigerians are aware that many became criminally rich during the last administration. Organisations that have been accused of receiving money for campaigns like the TAN, CAN in particular, and individual office holders should be investigated by the EFCC, and as much of the misappropriated national wealth as possible should be returned for the development of our country.”
Rev. Fearon admonished Buhari to stay clear of any faulty foundation laid by his predecessor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
“He should closely look at the foundation laid before building on it to avoid a cataclysm that may be worse than what he is inheriting. That means, there should be some probes, but not within his first six months in office,” the cleric said.
He added: “Mr. President is advised to sanitise the Armed Forces, get them well equipped, and flush out the remaining Boko Haram insurgents within his first six months in office.
“Within the first six months, we encourage Mr. President to have achieved something to give some hope to Nigerians.  We suggest he makes fuel available by removing subsidy so as to use the billions being paid to marketers who, in spite of that, hold Nigerians to ransom.
“We suggest to the President to get the companies responsible for the power sector to either make power generation and distribution effective, or set up appropriate, trustworthy and action-oriented machinery within constitutional provisions to re-evaluate their contracts.
“We want to state the obvious so as to give the President some ideas for his consideration and action. It is obvious, the stakes are high; Nigerians who voted for you have a very high expectancy level. You cannot afford to fail by disappointing them.
