Written by Henry on September 5, 2019
National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev Supo Ayokunle, has decried the precarious situation Nigeria has found itself, noting that the nation is passing through a difficult time.
He made this assertion at the ongoing 37th Holy Ghost Convention of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries a.k.a Christ Life Church, Ibadan, headed by Bishop Francis Wale Oke.
“Things are not going on right in Nigeria. Our nation is passing through a difficult phase” he lamented
However, the CAN president who is also the National President, Baptist Convention, expressed the optimism that God would intervene to salvage the situation.
Ayokunle who confessed that steering affairs of the association had not been easy, pointed out that the body was not a political party but rather an organisation out to defend the interest of Christians in the country.
Ayokunle described Wale Oke as “world shaker who came from nowhere but has been everywhere.”
He thanked the Bishop for supporting him and members of his cabinet, praying that God would always uphold him.
Speaking, the Presiding Bishop of the church, Wale Oke commended Ayokunle for always speaking when it mattered to the authorities concerned.
He said Christian leaders were not keeping quiet about the situation in the country, adding, “we are not keeping quiet; we speak up from time to time to the authorities”
The convention themed: The Manifold Wisdom of God, which started on Monday, September 2, would be rounded off on Sunday, September 8, which coincides with the 63rd birthday of the Bishop.
