Return of Catholic Church excites CAN

The President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Dr. Samson Ayokunle has expressed excitement on the return of the Catholic Church to its fold, reports ITRealms.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, CAN president said he was excited about the return of the Catholic Church, noting that the Church left CAN some five years ago.

In a press statement made available to ITRealms, Ayokunle pointed that their return is one of the best things that have happened since he assumed office as the President of CAN.

“One of my visions for CAN is to bring our Catholic brothers and sisters back to the fold; and I must acknowledge the support and understanding of my brother in Christ, Most Rev Ignatius Kaigama, President, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria and his team. I give kudos to all the principal officers, the directors and some Christian leaders in the country for their support and understanding while the dialogue lasted.

“My joy knows no bound with the presence of the CSN at the constitution amendment meeting of CAN held on Thursday and at the NEC meeting on Friday. It is our prayers that the Body of Christ in the country will remain one forever in Jesus’ name.

“At a time like this when Christians are almost becoming endangered species in Nigeria, when churches are being denied the Certificate of Occupancy especially in the core North, when Christians are being denied key public offices and when the Church is expected to speak for the voiceless, especially over the economic and social hardship in our country, we cannot afford to be at war with one another,” he said.

Ayokunle insisted that CAN is united in diversity. Stressing that Jesus Christ prayed for the Church shortly before He returned to heaven in John chapter 17.
