Former Nigerian lawmaker, Shehu Sani has stated that it is not possible for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi to give away N2 billion to the Christian Association of Nigeria for mobilization.
Sani was reacting to a report that Obi donated N2bn to the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to facilitate his appearance in churches to support his presidential ambition.
However, President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, CAN while debunking the news, described the allegation as baseless, saying that the claim was a failed attempt to drag the Christian body into politics.

Okoh said CAN maintains its non-partisan stance and will not endorse or mobilize support for any candidate in the upcoming elections.
Also, Obi dismissed a viral “petition” alleging that he gave two billion to churches across the country, saying that the petition was “concocted to tarnish his hard-earned reputation”.
Reacting to the development, Senator Sani said Obi couldn’t have parted with N2 billion going by his recent meeting with him at the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) delegate congress.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle, Sani revealed that the LP standard bearer cannot give anyone such an amount of money because his front pockets have a sealed cover.
“I don’t think Peter Obi can easily part with N2 Billion. Last week we met at the ICC Abuja, venue of the NLC delegate congress, even his front pockets have a sealed cover,” he wrote.
