New CAN president will lead well, says Tinubu group

Tinubu: HURIWA demands Lagos CAN chair's sacking

A political group identified as the Tinubu Youth Disciples has congratulated Most Rev. Daniel Okoh on emerging the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Okoh succeeds the former president Rev Samson Olasupo- Ayokunle.

However, TYD’s congratulatory address was contained in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Prince Koyoyo Uhrorho, on Thursday in Abuja.

“We the Tinubu Youth Disciples are delighted to hear the news of your emergence as the new chairman of the highest Christian body in Nigeria, the Christian Association of Nigeria.

“We are confident of your capability to steer the wheels of the great Christian body and lead the entire Christiandom as the Lord Jesus Christ admonish.

“We pray that the Almighty God gives you the grace and the enablement to discharge your new assignment,’’ Uhrorho said.

It would be recalled that the association’s General Secretary, Mr Joseph Daramola, announced the emergence of Most Rev. Okoh as the new CAN President in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Okoh is the General Superintendent of Christ Holy Church, also known as Nation Builders (Odozi-Obodo).

CAN is made up of five blocs: Christian Council of Nigeria, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, and Christian Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria/Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria.

Others are the Organisation of African Instituted Churches, TEKAN, and ECWA Fellowship.
