The Northern States Christian Elders Forum (NOSCEF) says it will honour the National President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor for his steadfastness in defending and identifying with Christians in the north.
The Christian elders who made this known while speaking with newsmen at Hekan Tekan Church in Kaduna yesterday, said that the honour will take place tomorrow at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja.
Chairman of the forum Evangelist Matthew Owojaiye said Oritsejafor continued to identify himself with the church and always stood up for suffering Christians in the north.
“In spite of all the condemnations against him and calling him all kind of names, he has stood strong and forging ahead in fighting the course of Christians. He is accessible, he has listening ears and he prefers to lay down his life for the course of Christ in Nigeria,” he said.
