Dogara, other northern Christian politicians disown Babachir Lawal over endorsement of Peter Obi
We want to draw the attention of the general public to the recent position canvassed by our Chairman, Engr B D Lawal, as the position of our Group.
We wish to state that necessary consultations have been concluded, and based on manifestly unassailable empirical data, the group is poised to adopt a position which will be made known to the public at an interfaith event to be held very soon.
Also suffices to say that no one in the group including the Chairman has been mandated to speak to the public about our position at this material time.
Based on our modus Operandi, our position was meant to be presented to the general public at the event above referred to. That has not changed.
Consequently, the decision to endorse a particular candidate and the statement credited to the chairman are solely the decision and views of the Chairman which he is absolutely entitled to but not that of the group.
We hope this statement clears all the queries most of us have been inundated with on this all important subject matter.
