Christians under siege, CAN president raises alarm at RCCG convention

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Supo Ayokunle, on Friday Revd Ayokunle raised the alarm that Christians were under siege in Nigeria.

Revd Ayokunle urged Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olorunnisakin, Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and other Christians in political positions to do something about Nigeria.

He specifically told Osinbajo that “now that you’re close to the seat of power, do something about Nigeria.”

This was just as he declared that the magnitude of Christian gathering he saw at the two auditoriums during the Holy Ghost Service at the Redemption Camp of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was unimaginable.

The CAN president insisted that Christians were under siege in the country.

He opined that religious fundamentalists had made Christians endangered species in the world, describing the situation as unprecedented in history.

Meanwhile, no fewer than 89 babies were born at the convention.

Twenty-two babies were born on Friday alone, comprising 13 boys and nine boys.

Out of the 89 babies born between Monday and Friday, 53 are boys and 36 girls.

The General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, while reeling out the figures, stated that “it looks as if the convention is specially for boys.”

The cleric also seized the opportunity to call out babies, who were born as a result of prayers offered during the conventions of 2014 and 2015, to the altar for blessing and  thanksgiving unto God.
