The brand new president of the Christian Affiliation of Nigeria (CAN), Archbishop Daniel Okoh, has weighed in on the Muslim-Muslim ticket brouhaha.
The CAN President, on Thursday, stated a number of Christians have the real concern that there’s a deliberate plan to take away the Christian religion from the scheme of issues and make them second-class residents in Nigeria.
Okoh stated the concern was borne out of the latest happenings within the polity.
In response to him, “that is, the same-faith ticket in one of the major political parties in Nigeria despite the caution raised by CAN since two years ago.”
In his acceptance speech in Abuja after the Normal Meeting of CAN validated his election, Okoh stated: “We’re coming in on the time that every one of us within the Christian religion, consider that some part of political leaders should not delicate to the varied nature of our inhabitants when sure choices are being made.
“Whatever happens, no matter how many times our sensibilities are insulted, we must resolve to make a positive impact on the political, economic and social systems of our dear nation.”
