The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has sent out a New Year message to Christians and Nigerians in general.


Going by the level of insecurity in the country, CAN noted that it is only by the grace of God that “we have been preserved, overcoming the trials and tribulations of the past year”.

The apex Christians body, in a statement signed by Archbishop Daniel Okoh, its President, expressed shock over the Christmas Eve attacks on communities in Plateau by terrorists.

The statement added, “These acts of aggression against innocent lives are a stark reminder of the fragility of peace in our beloved country.

“It is a recurrent nightmare that we have witnessed far too often.

“In light of these distressing events, our prayers intensify for the souls we have lost and for the bereaved families.

“We pray earnestly to the Almighty God that such senseless loss of life and wanton destruction of property will never plague our communities again. May He guide us towards pathways of peace and grant solace to all who have suffered.

“In the face of these adversities, it is imperative that we, as a people, refuse to be discouraged. Instead, we must come together and remain resolute in our commitment to build a united, peaceful, and prosperous nation.

“It is in our togetherness that we find the strength to withstand the trials that beset us. In unity, there is hope, resilience, and the power to rebuild. Let us embrace our diversity and allow it to be the bedrock upon which we build a stronger, more harmonious nation.

“Let us draw strength from our faith, our shared values, and our collective resolve to surmount the obstacles that confront us. Together, as one united people, we are capable of creating a Nigeria where peace, justice, and prosperity are not just ideals, but realities for all.

“May the transformative era that has begun continue to unfold for our nation in the year 2024. Let us march forward with hope and determination, and may God’s blessings be upon Nigeria.”
