CAN settles leadership crisis out of court
The leadership crisis that has plagued the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) since June last year has been settled out of court.
The crisis started after the election of Rev. Dr Supo Samson Ayokunle, as the National President.
An aggrieved aspirant and ECWA President, Rev. Dr Jeremiah Gado, sued the then CAN leadership under Pastor Ayo Oritsajafor at the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT) High Court over the election process.
However, a statement made available to Daily Trust on Sunday by CAN’s Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Evangelist Kwamkur Samuel, said the crisis has been resolved following the intervention by the current CAN leadership, top religious leaders and wellmeaning Nigerians.
He also said that after a rigorous battle in court and interventions, the parties saw a need for an amicable resolution of the issues.
According to him, the parties agreed on terms built around the unity of the church. The statement explained that with the new development, CAN is now better positioned to speak for all Christians in the country.
