Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has urged Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor to use his new office as President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to sustain the relevance and authority of CAN as the mouthpiece of the Body of Christ in Nigeria.
According to Oshiomhole, “CAN as a pre-eminent faith-based organization has a strong role to play in building inter-faith harmony, democratic consolidation and good governance in Nigeria. This requires leadership with maturity, a liberal disposition and a firm belief in the unity of the nation.
“Oritsejafor has in the past demonstrated such qualities, especially as the President of the Pentecostal Federation of Nigeria”.
The Edo State Chief Executive appealed to religious leaders to appreciate their responsibility towards uniting Nigerians and put to check those who fan the embers of religious discord for their selfish interests.
