Dr. Stephen Adegbite, the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria’s (CAN) Lagos chapter, has revealed that the organisation has no specific presidential candidate that it has decided to support. Instead, he says that CAN is supporting all candidates running to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adegbeite claimed that CAN was unable to support any candidate because everyone running for president of Nigeria in 2023, when President Buhari’s term ends, was a Nigerian and qualified to lead the nation.
He noted that the leader the country currently needs was someone who could lead Nigerians aright and deliver the dividends of democracy that everyone in the country currently yearns for.
Adegbite said this while speaking at the 9th Annual General Conference of the Cherubim and Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter led by Special Apostle Segun Adio. He expressed optimism that God will take control of the country and that Nigeria will not disintegrate but remain one indivisible entity.
“As Christians, we are not going to push any candidate, all the candidates belong to us but I can assure you that God is going to give us a man after his own heart”.
“God will take control of our country and Nigeria will remain an indivisible entity. We just need somebody that can lead us right and give us the dividends of democracy and we must pray, once we pray, God will answer our prayers,” he added.
“Today is a day of celebration of all Christians, and a day of coming together of Christians and that is why I am here as the chairman of CAN to celebrate with them.”
“I thank God for the C&S Unification Church of Nigeria and God will continue to be with them and it shall be well with all of them.”
Prior to this, Senior Apostle Julius Opasola, Chairman of the Organisation of African Instituted Church, praised the Lagos Chapter of the C&S Unification Church of Nigeria for its efforts to reunite the body of Christ and for reaching out in fellowship to CAN and the OAIC.
He described the event as historic as it was the first time that OAIC will be represented at a programme organized by the Cherubim and Seraphim.
“I want to acknowledge and greet the Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the C&S for having the courage and boldness to see that the Church of God must be united by extending an invitation to CAN and OAIC in Lagos, I pray that God will continue to endow you and members of the executive with wisdom and understanding,” he said.
