CAN ties Sanwo-Olu’s performance to religion, backs return bid
The Christian Association of Nigeria, Lagos chapter, on Saturday declared support for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s return bid.
The body said the governor’s “pedigree as a Christian brought-up has continually shown in his devotion to service”.
Most Rev. Stephen Adegbite, the chairman, Lagos CAN chapter, said this at the 2022 CAN inter-denominational prayer, held in Lagos.
“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 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.
“CAN, therefore, has resolved to embark on voter registration and sensitisation drive across the state to bring the project Sanwo-Olu 2023 to fruition,” he said, according a report by the News Agency of Nigeria.
In his response, the governor who was a special guest at the event, thanked God for preserving the lives of the people during the difficult period of COVID-19.
He said his government would continue to provide an enabling environment for services and businesses to thrive.
