The President, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Rev. Dr. Olasupo Ayokunle has disclosed that CAN ultramodern secretariat at Irewole local government area of Osun state was sponsored by a “devout muslim”.
He noted this during the official commissioning of the secretariat while urging Nigerians to embrace religious tolerance.
According to him, Nigerians must realize that they serve only one God and the country will be a better place for everyone to live, if peace and tolerance is given a chance.
“I must say this is laudable, this is what we have been preaching, harmonious relationship between all religions. It is exactly what God wants, this is the only way we can achieve true peace in our nation. It is nice to know that the sponsor of this project for CAN Irewole is a devout Muslim, this gladdens my heart so much.
“We must learn to stop the habit or claim that we are fighting for God. We all serve only one God and we must also realise that we can’t fight on his behalf, rather, we should embrace each other, show more tolerance to other religious faithful to make Nigeria a better place for us all to live”.
NewsWireNGR however gathered that the building completion was sponsored by Osun State Commissioner for Finance, Alhaji Bola Oyebamiji.
