Muslims urges Nigerians to emulate CAN president's generous spirit

Pastor Oritsejafor reportedly presented seven brand new Hyandai Grand cars, 20 tricycles, 100 grinding machines to the less privileged in the society

The annual empowerment programme of the National President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ayo Oritsejafor has been described by the Managing Director of Federal Housing Authority, Mohammed Al-Ameen as an unparalleled act of philanthropy that can destroy the yoke of militancy in the country.

Despite the security situation in the north-east part of the Nigeria, Pastor Oritsejafor's annual empowerment programme held on Boxing Day, December 26, 2014.

Pastor Oritsejafor reportedly presented seven brand new Hyandai Grand cars, 20 tricycles, 100 grinding machines to the less privileged in the society.

He also donated a car each to a pastor, David Solomon in Maiduguri and the Chief Imam of Maiduguri, Mohammed Saidu, both of whom, meeting for the first time at the annual empowerment programme, immediately pledged to work towards the peace of Borno State in particular and the North East geo-political region.

Pastor Solomon and Imam Mohammed Saidu, commended the philanthropic spirit of the CAN president, and his 'determination to ensure peaceful co-existence among every Nigerian in every part of the federation, while many eminent Nigerians have chosen to remain silent'.

Al-Ameen, described Oritsejafor as a man working his preaching adding that what the CAN president told him during an interfaith gathering on March 27, 2014 in Abuja was far less than what they have witnessed.

Prof Al-Ameen said: “This is a man that will gather the down-trodden in the society and empower them with things that will totally change them for better and forever.

“Honestly speaking, I am very happy to be part of this memorable occasion. And I was telling him, this event should not be restricted to Warri alone.”
