Pastor Frank Onwumere, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Okigwe says he didn’t author a petition accusing the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN of misappropriating N2 billion.
The petition which has been flying on the internet alleged that the money was given to the organization by the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.
But distancing himself from the petition, Onwumere said the church which the said petitioner claimed to represent is unknown to him.
In a statement titled “Re: “Petition on the misappropriation of N2 Billion given by the presidential candidate of Labour party, Mr Peter Obi to Churches under the umbrella of CAN…”, he said “My attention has been drawn to a petition with the above subject matter purportedly written by one Pastor Frank Onwumere of Dominion Center International.
“I wish to use this medium to inform the public, my associates, friends and family, that I, Hon. Pastor Frank Alozie Onwumere, did not author the said petition, and did not authorize anybody to do so on my behalf.
“Please be informed that:
1. I am not a member of Dominion Center International and have never had any relationship with the organisation.
2. The author of the petition is not known to me.
“Please be assured that it is not in my character to malign any person or institution, let alone revered religious bodies”.
