CAN President Seeks Unity Among Christians

The President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has called on Christians to be united in order to ensure peaceful coexistence among the people of the country.

Orisejafor made the call when he inaugurated the new executive members of the Niger chapter of CAN in Minna.
“If there is anytime the church needs to come together, it’s now, this is the time the church needs to be knitted together,’’ he said.

He enjoined Christians to demonstrate true love in their daily lives toward ensuring peaceful coexistence of the people of the country.
According to him, there is no better time for the church to pray for the country than now.

The CAN president, who was represented by the association’s Director of National Issues, Mr Sunday Oibie, however, adjudged the election of the chapter officers to be the best so far in the country.

“This is the best elections of CAN so far conducted across the country, before now, the elections of CAN have the capacity to tear the church apart.

“But God in His infinite mercy has been helping us to conduct the elections without any problem.
“To avoid unnecessary petitions and court cases, we have made it compulsory for the national body to be fully involved in all state elections,’’ he said.

He advised the new executive to embrace forgiveness and live in the love of Jesus Christ.
Similarly, Mr Albert Uko, National Legal Adviser, said “this is the most transparent election organised by CAN in the country.’’

Uko urged the new Executive to cooperate with the regional and national body for better synergy to establish enduring principles of probity and transparency in CAN.

Also, Rev. Mathias Echioda, new CAN Chairman in the state, called for an outburst of spiritual revival among Christians to further promote unity.

Echioda charged Christians in the state to positively influence their domain, adding that all unnecessary barriers must be broken.
Other executive members were Rev. Fr. Godwin Yari, Vice Chairman; Ven. Silas Yisa, Secretary; Apostle Raphael Opawoye, Assistant Secretary; and‎ Rev. Sani Badeh, Treasurer. (NAN)
