The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has described the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has a safe haven for corrupt politicians.

The Christian body stated this during a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari over the weekend.

Speaking during the visit, CAN’s President, Samson Ayodele, stated that Buhari must clear the negative impression that the anti-corruption war was targeted at people that are not members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Like we categorically noted here during our last visit, the wish of the people is for the war against corruption to be total and without discrimination. Not a few believe that the ruling party is becoming a safe haven to some corrupt politicians in their bid to escape the trap of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“CAN commends your boldness and courage in implementing the BVN and the treasury single account (TSA) system. There is no doubt that the two policies have greatly helped in sanitising the system,” Ayokunle said.

CAN also called on the president to ensure a free and fair election in 2019.

“A presidential order to the police and other security agencies to be non-partisan, neutral and apolitical in the coming general elections, with a view to securing international respect and honour for our country in the comity of nations,” the body said.
