President Bola Tinubu received the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at the state house on Monday, January 22 in Abuja.
This is the first meeting of the year between the president and the Christian organisation.
CAN President, Most Rev. Daniel Okoh disclosed to State House correspondents on Monday after a meeting with President Tinubu at the Presidential Villa: “The general elections of 2023 have come and gone and by the grace of God we have a sitting President in the person of President Bola Tinubu and so the leadership of CAN decided to come to pay a courtesy visit to congratulate him on his election and to pledge our support for his administration.”
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) also praised President Bola Tinubu’s “great sense of inclusiveness”.
Most Revd Daniel Okoh said the Christian body found that the way President Tinubu has made appointments so far since assuming office shows he is committed to an inclusive government.
The CAN leader said President Tinubu’s inclusive approach to appointments has already increased the confidence of the masses in his administration.
The leader advised the President to continue on this path of inclusion, which has been evident from the beginning of his administration.
Revd Okoh said the Christian body believes the nation now has “a listening President” and urged President Tinubu to continue on that path.
CAN pledged to continue praying for the President, for him to do a lot more to turn around the fortunes of Nigeria.
