“The greatest challenge before the Church in Nigeria today is leadership. A nation is, more or less a system, which is at the mercy of the value driving it. For our nation to change a new driving value system is of essence. Seasons to which we can point as good as a nation are not unconnected to the vibrancy of Christian missions/missionaries and activities upon which the nation depended for directions.

“Leaders, Christians and non-Christians alike, were models for leadership, having been nurtured by the then education system, which was largely driven by Christian missions

In what he described as true leadership in Christ like servitude, the Bishop of Christ Holy king restoration Church in Delta State, Alfred Damian said that what the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN,in dere need to unite and liberate the body of Christ in the country.

Damian in his foresight revealed that the person of Reverend (Dr) Caleb S. Ahima is a man with the Moses ability of leadership that the church in Nigeria must pray to God to provide to her such a Man with a touch of Love vast experience of priesthood.

Alfred who enjoin believers that falls within the voting block of CAN to see Caleb has the saving Grace to set free Christians under the skewed deliberate structure of the country’s leadership that is a favoring a particular religion at the disadvantage of others.

According to him Ahima should be seen yet another ‘audacity of hope to Nigerian Christians and they (Christians) should not contemplate in bringing him on board to chart a new course for CAN.

“The greatest challenge before the Church in Nigeria today is leadership. A nation is, more or less a system, which is at the mercy of the value driving it.

“Leaders, Christians and non-Christians alike, were models for leadership, having been nurtured by the then education system, which was largely driven by Christian missions.

“It is common knowledge that our health delivery system was largely influenced by missions. It is, therefore, safe to say Nigeria once worked because the Church was working.” Damian said

He continue to say that CAN is culpable of whatever has befallen the nation. A genuine rescue mission of the nation can only start from the church. In this wise, CAN, as the organisation representing the body of Christ in Nigeria, must consider the revival of internal values over and above whatever political stakes and dividends that can be offered to her.

He further said that:

“CAN must be engineered to drive the nation rather than wallowing in the murky waters of politics along side politicians. It must be seen to be the light through which the nation can walk out of her dark moment. And this can only be achieved through a change of leadership of CAN.

“The erudite writer and scholar, Prof. Wole Soyinka once said, “The 3rd World War may start on the social media.” Today, most global activities revolve around the social media.

“CAN can’t afford to be led by persons who are far removed from the reality of the state of the Church in Nigeria.

“One from among the persecuted saints from the Church in Northern Nigeria is needed to be the voice of the church at this season, “For we do not have an High Priest who is not touched by the feelings of our infirmities.”

Alfred is making a resounding and clarion and triumphal call that will serve as the voice of God even as a week towards another Church leadership election, tagged, CAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS 2019.

He invite believers to pray,rally and support Rev (Dr) Caleb S. Ahima of the TEKAN/ECWA Bloc, a bloc with wide mission operations in Northern Nigeria and deep into the heart of Sudan mission fields, including nations such as Niger, Mali, Chad and many others.

“We strongly believe that the diplomatic experience of this mission is of asset, not just to CAN but the country as a whole. ” Damian added
