President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Samson Ayokunle has frowned at the recent selection of Appeal Court Judges by the National Judicial Council.
The CAN President noted that the appointment was skewed in favour of a particular ethnic group in the country.
Revd. Ayokunle made this known at the thanksgiving service for the newly elected 7th president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke, held at Precious Cornerstone University, Ibadan, on Sunday.
The CAN president explained that favouring a particular ethnic group or religion with national appointments was capable of polarizing the nation which was one of the reasons for agitation by some groups calling for secession.
The cleric also called for adherence to the rule of law by the Kwara State Government in resolving the issue of the hijab crisis in the state.
He however, called on the new PFN President to brace up for the challenges ahead, noting that God’s guidance and wisdom would see him through.
Similarly in a remark, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, accompanied by his wife and the deputy governor, solicited prayers and support of the church to succeed in the developmental strides embarked upon by his administration in the state.
Governor Makinde while rejoicing with the state for having its three prominent sons holding the leadership of CAN, PFN and CAC, urged Christian faithfuls to get more involved in the electioneering processes.
In a remark, the newly elected president of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Bishop Wale Oke, while thanking God for bestowing on him the new post, admonished Christians not to retaliate injustice with violence but always preach love and unity.
The bishop also presented with an award on outstanding leadership from CAN.
