The Christian Association of Nigeria has commended the courage and boldness with which the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose openly declared his intention to contest the2019 presidential election.
 
CAN advised the governor not to be distracted by people, who have nothing good to offer the country.
 
The commendation was contained in a letter signed by the National General Secretary of CAN, Reverend Musa Asake.

Meanwhile Fayose has called on the Nigerian Judiciary to sanitize its system against what he calls persons destroying its integrity and the image of the country. 
 
The governor made this call in Ado Ekiti, while reacting to the statement of the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, asking Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court to disqualify himself from his corruption trial before him.
