The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Archbishop Daniel Okoh paid a courtesy visit to the Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, The Most Rev’d Dr. Henry C. Ndukuba at the St Matthias House, the National Secretariat of the Church in Abuja.
Archbishop Daniel appreciated the Church of Nigeria for being a strong pillar of support to the association over the years. The CAN president noted the impact of the Church of Nigeria in steering and helping to sustain the growth of Christianity in Nigeria over the years. He recalled that the strong foundation of the association cannot be detailed without remembering the role of the Anglican Church under the CAN leadership of the former primate, Archbishop Peter Akinola (rtd).
He also said that part of the essence of the visit was to also intimate the Primate about the activities of CAN at the national level and to seek for continuation of the support of the Anglican Church in all its assignments.
The Primate who thanked the leadership of CAN, noted that the Anglican Church will always support and be part of the association promising the leadership of CAN of more commitments.
