Second term: CAN backs Sanwo-Olu


The Lagos State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, on Saturday, pledged to support Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second tenure, ahead of the 2023 general election.

CAN Chairman, Most Rev. Stephen Adegbite, made the declaration at the 2022 CAN inter-denominational prayer service held at the headquarters of the Apostolic Church of God in Lagos, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Speaking, Adegbite said, “We thank God we have a child of God as our governor. His pedigree as a Christian brought-up has continually shown in his devotion to service to mankind in different strata of the society even in difficult times.

“For us to thank him for his good work in this first tenure is to rally round him and re-elect him for a second tenure in order for him to complete many of his people oriented projects in varying stages of completion.

“As the voice of the Christian fold in the state CAN cannot associate itself with that which cannot be of benefit to the common good.”
