Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu has congratulated Rev. Daniel Okoh on emerging the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
Okoh, who was elected on Monday, replaces Rev Samson Ayokunle.
Tinubu noted in a statement on Friday that the new CAN leader who is the general superintendent of Christ Holy Church is a worthy successor to Ayokunle whose tenure as CAN president was one characterised by exceptional commitment, principle and wisdom.
“I congratulate Rev. Okoh on his election as the new president of CAN. Noting that Rev. Okoh had truly distinguished himself as the deputy to Rev. Ayokunle,” said Tinubu.
The APC leader declared that Nigeria can only expect nothing but inspired and enlightened leadership from Okoh.
“CAN is one of the most important organisations in the nation. Not only does it seek the betterment of the Christian community in Nigeria, its moral force and standing benefit all Nigerians as we seek to establish a just and compassionate society where people of all faiths and beliefs live and work together in peace and harmony.
“As Rev. Okoh assumes the mantle of leadership, it is my hope and prayer that his tenure brightens every corner of our country and may he be a shining light to all,” he said.
