2019: CAN denies reports that it has endorsed Buhari

Reverend Supo Ayokunle, who has been re-elected as the National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for another three-year term, has been charged to see his second term as an opportunity to defend the religious liberty of millions of the faithful and the rule of law.

The call was made by the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State chapter, which congratulated its National President over his victory at the recently conducted election of the association.

The CAN state chairman, Rev. John Joseph Hayap, in a letter addressed to the National President also urged Ayokunle to see his re-election as a wake-up call to defend the religious rights of Christians in the country.
