Kwankwaso congratulates new CAN President

Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has congratulated the General Superintendent of Christ Holy Church (Odozi-Obodo), Archbishop Daniel Okoh, on his election as the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

In in a letter he personally signed, Kwankwaso described Okoh’s election as the “most-deserving” of all.

“We are even more pleased that the competitive selection process has produced a President who is a renowned scholar, a detribalized Nigerian patriot, a hero of interfaith dialogue with international track record in reconciling people, especially of different faiths, and a champion of peace, unity and the rule of law.

“Our country will undoubtedly be a better place if all men of God of all religions approach pastoral work with the tolerance, the compassion and the faithfulness to higher principles that you have exhibited in the various offices that you have occupied in the past. And today, as you ascend to the Presidency of CAN, the scope has expanded and the horizon has broadened; and it is our prayer that, in your new position, God Almighty uses you, with the power of His Grace, to counsel and move the Nigerian Christendom towards a deep understanding of the Other, towards a sympathetic dialogue with the Other and towards building a sincere fellowship with everyone.

“As you take up this new responsibility today, I pray to God to continue to guide and protect you. May He make the task of steering the affairs of the CAN easy and successful for you,” the statement read in part.

Okoh took over from Rev Samson Ayokunle.
