According to him: ”For the avoidance of doubt, I did not say I regretted collecting any money from Tinubu! And I did not say anybody collected any money from Tinubu! I did not collect any such money and I didn’t see anyone collecting it.”

Byang said the reports credited to him were tissues of lies from the enemies of the gospel calculated to tarnish his reputation and that of the conveners of the meeting!

” Ultimately, it is a mischievous slander meant to create confusion among Christians and set brother against brother and to destroy the Church’s resolve to unite and give Christians a sense of direction in the 2023 general elections.

” As it has been explained by the conveners of the meeting, the meeting with Tinubu was meant to interface with him on the thorny issue of the day; the Muslim/Muslim ticket.

“It was to hear him out and also to express our concerns to him as Christians in the North about it. And this was wonderfully done during the meeting!”

He stressed that this type of interface is ongoing with different political candidates meeting with different groups and organisations.
