Catholics Return To CAN Five Years After Walking Out ....

The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, CSN, has returned to the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, after five years of walking out of the national Christian Umbrella body in the country over some irreconcilable differences with the leadership, that was later described as “political".

The return was reportedly perfected on Thursday and Friday in Abuja when a delegation of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, led by Rev. Fr. (Prof.) Cornelius Omonokhua, appeared at the expanded National Executive Committee and quarterly meeting of CAN for the amendment of its constitution.

The President of CAN, Dr. Samson Ayokunle, according to a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant (Media and Communications), Adebayo Oladeji, expressed delights about the new development.

He said, “Their return is one of the best things that have been happening since I was given the mandate to become the President of CAN. One of my visions for CAN is to bring our Catholic brothers and sisters back to the fold; and I must acknowledge the support and understanding of my brother in Christ, Most Rev Ignatius Kaigama, President, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria and his team. It is our prayers that the Body of Christ in the country will remain one forever in Jesus’ name.

  3. Until CAN becomes a totally independent body with genuine concern for the church, won't take them serious

  4. Nice move in the right direction. Problems and differences are bound to be resolve. I hope this will strengthen the association commitment and ethics in political matters

  5. Good news, may God keep them together in one body

  6. Great news. Christianity is one body, united we stand ...
