Mixed Reactions As The Bishops That Appeared At Shettima's Presentation Show Proof Of Ordination

According to reports trickling down the media, the Bishops that appeared at the official public presentation of the former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, as the running mate of Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the 2023 presidential election, have shown their proof of ordination and their ministries. Recall that their appearance at the event stirred reactions as they were accused of impersonation and labelled "fake".

The report revealed that the Bishops said they never presented themselves as emissaries from the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN. The Bishops reportedly showed their proof of ordination during an interview with the pressmen at Abuja where their representative, Adams Abel King read their statement on behalf of the group.

As expected, the news stirred mixed reactions from social media users. Adanna Aniche said the best way to prove they're clerics is to post pictures of their churches with them performing ministerial functions, while Merkabah Kenneth said it's not necessary to show any proof of ordination. Check out the screenshots below for the details.
