President of the Christian Association of Nigeria Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has pleaded with Christians in the country to close ranks and work as one in God’s vineyard, saying that ‘there is no better time for Christians in the country to be united than now’.

Oritsejefor also asked Christians to be fervent in prayers for the peaceful coexistence of the country.

The CAN President made the remarks in a message he sent to the 87th delegates conference of the Niger state chapter of the association during which the election of new executive members to run the affairs of the body was held at the ECWA Good news church on Saturday.

“If there is anytime the church needs to come together, it’s now. This is the time the church needs to be knitted together. Before now, the elections of CAN have the capacity to tear the church apart but God in His infinite mercy has been helping us to conduct the elections without any problem’.

Pastor Oritsejefor, who was represented by the Director of National Issues of the association, Elder Sunday Oibie, and spoke on the topic ‘the end is better than the beginning’ challenged Christians and the church to work towards leaving legacies behind that generations yet unborn would be proud of.
