The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has felicitated with Christians and urged Nigerians to be courageous in order to confront the economic recession and the attendant problems.

The association expressed optimism that God would turnaround the unpleasant situation in the New Year.

In a message yesterday in Abuja, CAN President, Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, said: “Although things turned out this year in the way we never expected, the Lord who intervened through a dream in the case of Joseph and restored their relationship with a baby as icing on the cake will restore prosperity to our land and make the coming year that of abundance in the name of Jesus.”

“I admonish all Christians and of course all Nigerians to pick up courage and move on with their lives inspite of the challenges facing us as a nation. Though Joseph was disappointed when he saw Mary pregnant thinking it was an outcome of her unfaithful sexual intercourse, he decided not to allow that to determine his future. He made up his mind to put her away privately and move on with his life. That was courage.”

The CAN president also commiserated with the victims of the Boko Haram attacks in the North-East and killings in the Southern Kaduna.

Also, CAN, in a statement by its Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Samuel, condoled with Internally Displaced Persons and families of victims of the killings in the Southern Kaduna.

The statement read: “We are grateful to the Almighty God that despite the excruciating challenges of the economic recession and the act of terrorism by various terrorist groups and militia in the Middle Belt, particularly the Southern Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria, the faithful went ahead with the celebration of the Christmas, they are able to keep hope alive.

CAN sympathises with the victims of various attacks spread in the IDP camps across the nation and our members in Southern Kaduna where some murderous groups have been killing despite the heavy presence of the security operatives.”
