Christian Delegation To National Conference Deny Bias Claim Against Leadership Of Conference
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, March 19, (THEWILL) - The Christian delegates at the ongoing National Conference have debunked media reports suggesting that they accused the leadership of the conference of bias.
In a statement signed by Godswill Iyoha Iyoke Esq.
on behalf of the delegates said the media reports on the comments credited to Pastor Tunde Bakare and Mr.
Mike Ozekhome were erroneously presented in the media as positions of the Christian delegates whereas the duo are not representing Christians at the conference.
The statement reads: 'The attention of the 'Christian Leaders' delegation to the national conference has been drawn to misleading media reports on the goings on at the national conference.
'The Daily Sun of instant date has this caption; 'Conference in shocking start: Christian delegates accuse leadership of bias'.
This was in apparent reference to the contributions of; Pastor Tunde Bakare, who introduced himself as a Nigerian on the delegation of Ogun State; and Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, who humorously introduced himself as; 'a Federal Government Addendum' delegate.
None of these 2 eminent Nigerians represent Christians at the on-going Confab.
'For clarity and avoidance of doubt, the Christian delegates to the Confab are; 1.
D Bagobiri 2.
A Achimugu; 3.
Professor Andrew Haruna 4.
) Kate Okpareke 5.
Pastor Emmanuel Olatubosun; and 6.
The undersigned, Godswill Iyoha Iyoke 'We wish to say that none of our 6 member delegates made any contributions on the floor of the conference; or on those issues under reference.
We are therefore worried as to how clear unambiguous introductions and contributions by others could be credited to us.
Furthermore, we do not find anything unusual in the comments or conduct of the said personalities at the conference to be clothed with the cloak of controversy and contention as the reports seek to do.
