The Edo State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has ordered all churches in the state to close service early on Sunday, 10th November 2019 in order to partake in the denomination service arranged to celebrate Governor Obaseki’s 3rd year in office.
Chairman of Edo CAN, Bishop Oyonude Kure, who spoke in Benin City at CAN’s 2019 plenary session on Monday, said the church must continue to stand with Governor Obaseki as his emergence was an act of God, not men.
Bishop Oyonude Kure commended the Edo State Deputy Governor, Hon. Philip Shaibu for his resilience in standing by the governor, noting that the good working relationship between Mr. Obaseki and his deputy was an evidence of the fear of God in them, coupled with the desire to take Edo to greater heights against all odds and criticism.
He, however, urged them not to relent in their commitments to the wellbeing of the state even as he implored the governor to personally go out for routine inspection and supervision of ongoing projects across the state.
Kure noted that through personal inspection of projects Governor Obaseki would have first-hand information on the quality of work being done by the executors of the projects.
Bishop Kure also made a special appeal to the governor to build an ecumenical Christian Centre for the body of Christ to serve as a rallying point for all Christians in the state.
