The Most Rev. Daniel Okoh has been elected the new president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN).

The announcement is contained in a statement yesterday in Abuja by the CAN General Secretary, Mr. Joseph Daramola.

Okoh is the General Superintendent of Christ Holy Church, also called Nation Builders (Odozi-Obodo).

CAN comprises five blocs: Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN); Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN); Christian Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (CPFN)/Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN); Organisation of African Instituted Churches (OAIC); TEKAN and ECWA Fellowship.

The umbrella Christian body in Nigeria is scheduled to hold its General Assembly on July 27, which will usher in the new administration.

The assembly also marks the end of the tenure of His Eminence Samson Olusupo-Ayokunle and other members of the National Executives in his team.

The outgoing CAN president thanked all Nigerians for their support and prayers, which he said led to his successful tenure.

Today, CAN’s pre-assembly, symposium and NEC meeting will begin, while the general assembly, sent-forth service and dinner will hold tomorrow.

The handover ceremony and beginning of a new regime will take place on July 29.
