CAN gets new leadership in Kaduna


The newly elected leadership of the Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, was inaugurated on Friday.

Speaking after taking over the leadership of CAN in the state, the new chairman, Rev. Ma’aji Caleb, said: “Our focus shall be to build trust, respect and true love among believers and people of other faiths in the state towards ensuring peace, unity and development in the state.”

He assured that the new leadership of CAN in the state would continue to consult past leaders for guidance, saying that they have proved themselves worthy mentors and excellent leaders.

The new chairman added that the new leadership is coming at a time when there is a need for a new approach to be put in place to foster unity and development for the body of Christ to contribute positively to a peaceful and united state.

Earlier, the outgoing chairman, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, thanked the church for the support given to the outgoing leadership and prayed for more support for a united and purposeful leadership in the state.

He lamented that a few days ago, about 400 people were kidnapped by bandits in the state but thanked Governor Uba Sani for being there for the people of the state.

According to him: “Governor Uba Sani’s government has so far proved to be inclusive to all and very sensitive to the plights of the common man. He, therefore, needs our prayers and support so that he will be able to carry out the programmes he has for the good people of the state in moving their living standards forward.”

Hayab expressed delight that the religious preaching bill that the government of the former governor, El-Rufai, wanted to use to regulate the activities of both Christians and Muslims has been quashed in the court of law.
