Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Knights of Saint Mulumba Nigeria has declared support for the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on Muslim/Muslim ticket.

CAN has been vocally opposed to the issue of same faith ticket as adopted by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Fielding questions from journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, the Worthy Metropolitan Grand Knight, Knight of Saint Mulumba, KSM, Nigeria, Sir Michael Aule, said his members support whatever position CAN has taken on the same faith matter.

He further disclosed that KSM would at its Supreme Council Convention next week in Abuja, discuss the role of the Church in the advocacy and the promotion of peace, equity, justice and development in the democratic transition in Nigeria, which incidentally is the theme of the convention.

Responding on the position of the Catholic Knights on Muslim/Muslim ticket as adopted by the APC he said:

“We encourage our brothers to join politics, many of our brothers are politicians and have been elected into positions.

“The issue is that we dont regulate the activities of brothers who are in politics but we support 100 percent the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN). We are members of the Christian Association of Nigeria and we stand with what decision they have taken.

“On this issue of Muslim/Muslim ticket, we are also standing for what CAN has taken. The decision of the Christian Association of Nigeria is the decision of the Knight of Saint Mulumba.”

According to him, “The Supreme Convention of KSM Nigeria is a platform for the promotion of the values of the Order through open discussions on vital issues such as the Christian faith, religious harmony, good governance, sustainable development, peace, unity, and equity as they affect our beloved Country.”
