CAN To Bar Members Without PVC From Attending Church Services
The Christian Association of Nigerian, CAN, has said it would be compelled to make it a law for any Christian believer to produce his or her own voter’s card before being allowed to attend any mass or service.
The Chairman, Plateau State chapter of the CAN, Rev. Soja Bewarang, gave this hint on Saturday at the third annual Plateau State prayer day organized by the state CAN in conjunction with the Plateau State Government.
The prayer session, with the theme, Endless Love Of Christ Brings Unity, had its Bible passage from John 15: 12-14.
Bewarang expressed dismay over the lack of unity among Christians, saying political or denominations’ differences between Christians remains the impediment of the progress of the Christian faith in Nigeria.
He however charged Plateau State Christians to shun such sentiments and love one another for the progress and development of the state, adding that the church as a body would be compelled to take stringent measures against any member that fails to obtain a voters’ card to exercise his or her civic responsibility in future elections in the country.
Also in attendance were Catholic Archbishop of Jos, Most Rev. Ignatius A. Kaigama and the Governor or Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong.
Kaigama commended Lalong and CAN for organizing the prayer session, saying the event has helped the Governor in clearing the air on fundamental issues disturbing the minds of the people.
He then prayed to God to heal Plateau land and comfort those who lost their loved ones in the recent attacks in the state.
