Gov Ortom Urges Christians In Nigeria To Unite For The Good Of The Nation

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has called on Christians in the country to unite to defeat the forces of darkness hovering over the nation.

Governor Ortom made this appeal Wednesday, July 28th, 2022 at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja while delivering a goodwill message at the inauguration of the new leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

He maintained that the country was under siege by the forces of darkness, which has made life unbearable for the people, saying the church must work with God in faith and absolute obedience for things to turn around.

While thanking the church for standing firm and refusing to be intimidated by the evil forces in the country, Governor Ortom advised Christians in the country to sustain their prayers for God to help enthrone peace and love in the nation.

The Governor expressed optimism that the God who has sustained the tenure of the outgoing President of CAN, Reverend Samson Ayokunle would do the same for the new leadership of the association led by Reverend Daniel Okoh for him to record milestones.

Secretary to the Federal Government, SGF, Mr. Boss Mustapha who represented the Federal Government appealed to the Christian community not to relent in their primary assignment of praying for the peace, unity, and progress of the country.

Mustapha noted that the peaceful and smooth transition from the outgoing leadership of CAN to the new leadership was a demonstration that with commitment, the same feat would be achieved after next year’s elections.

Others who gave goodwill messages included the Governor of Delta State and Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, former Governor of Anambra State and presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Mr. Peter Obi, Senator representing Adamawa North, Ishaku Abbo and Minister of Science and Technology, Olorunimbe Mamora.

In their separate goodwill messages, they prayed that the tenure of the new CAN President would witness the transformation of the church and country.

Earlier in a sermon, a former chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Abuja and General Overseer of All Christians Fellowship, Reverend William Okoye in a message titled, “Finishing Well” enjoined Christians to make righteousness the foundation of their faith and total submission to the will of God for things to turn around in the country.
