The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has responded to recent call by the founder of Household of God, Pastor Chris Okotie that its president, Ayo Oritsejafor resigns as CAN president.
CAN speaking via the Director of National Issues, Mr. Sunny Oibe advised the preacher to manage his home and keep to biblical doctrines of one man, one wife instead of attacking Oritsejafor.
Mr. Oibe, further stated that Okotie was looking for recognition through Oritsejafor.
He said, “Is Chris Okotie a Christian? How many wives has he?
“He should go and sort out himself. Even the government has exonerated Pastor Ayo of all the allegations. So, who is Okotie? Well, it is laughable if Chris Okotie should demand that Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor should resign as President of CAN.
“Chris Okotie should remove the log in his eyes before he begins to see a peck in somebody’s eyes. Pastor Ayo had a soaring integrity before he was elected the President of CAN. Who elected Chris Okotie to become the spokesperson of Christians in Nigeria?
“CAN will not like to join issues with Okotie because doing that will amount to making him popular. He is looking for popularity which he doesn’t have through Pastor Ayo and he is not going to get it,” he told Punch.
It would be recalled that Okotie called for the immediate resignation of the president of CAN, over the alleged involvement of his aircraft in the controversial $9.3m smuggled into South Africa.
