CAN Criticizes Chris Okotie’s Marriage History & Morals



oritsejafor and okotie

…And the Okotie-Oritsejafor drama continues.

You will recall that last week, Head pastor of Household of God Church, Chris Okotie, called for the resignation of the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ayo Oritsejafor, over the $9.3 million arms deal scandal, which his private jet was involved in.

And now, CAN’s Director of National Issues, Sunny Oibe, has replied Okotie’s remarks, criticizing his marriage history, and questioning whether he is indeed a Christian.

Oibe told Punch:

“Is Chris Okotie a Christian? How many wives has he?

He should go and sort out himself. Even the government has exonerated Pastor Ayo of all the allegations. So, who is Okotie? Well, it is laughable if Chris Okotie should demand that Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor should resign as President of CAN.

Chris Okotie should remove the log in his eyes before he begins to see a peck in somebody’s eyes. Pastor Ayo had a soaring integrity before he was elected the President of CAN. Who elected Chris Okotie to become the spokesperson of Christians in Nigeria?

CAN will not like to join issues with Okotie because doing that will amount to making him popular. He is looking for popularity which he doesn’t have through Pastor Ayo and he is not going to get it.”

    Christianity in Nigeria has reached another low. Was this response to Okotie from a Christian? Or did he simply read a script written by Olisah Metuh?

    This is a big shame! When did CAN become a political association, who in CAN is making this response… What happened to the principle in the Bible. If we cannot trust the men of God anymore who then can we trust! It is a matter of “Know whom you serve”

    It is laughable when leaders of religious groups and association like those we are reading about begin to anwser themselves in public.
    What is wrong? Where is christianity heading to in this country? Must religious leaders show their prowess in cutting down one another rather than preaching the eternal message of salvation?
    Ancient words, changing me and changing you, i, we have come, with open hearts, oh let the ancient words impact our lives positively.
    God bless Nigeria!

      Ntooor! E don tay wey I hear dat one oh. Plus isho too!

      This is what happens in a society that religion is not just regarded as a personal choice. Instead what we have is a supposedly secular country that forces everyone irrespective of their religion (or lack thereof) to “opening prayers” at civil events; with fake religious people saying prayers similar to the ones that armed robbers say before their raids.
      Anyway, make una dey disgrace una self dey go. You’re hastening the inevitable decline of old-fashioned and irrationally-thought out religion. In the new world people will actually think for themselves and not quote antiquated scriptures in defence in any argument.

    If anyone on the blog had said the words that Chris Okotie said … or those of CAN .. the condemnations and warnings of touch not my anointed would flow. Who will now go and reprimand Okotie/CAN. And by the way, I am a Christian, but I hate the type of Christianity that causes you to leave your brain at the door and blindly follow a so called “man of God”

    these are the christian leaders. these are people who call themselves the “Christian Association”. what separates them from an “unbeliever/sinner”. no wonder their “flocks” behave the way they do. Instead of someone to apologise, they are busy throwing cheap shots and acting like children. idiots!

    That was a nice response from CAN albeit he should know better than replying to his criticisms publicly as someone who is versed in the bible. This word battle is common among politicians. Maybe Chris is looking forward to being the next CAN president if Ayo resigns #bites my carrot# eyesrolling

    Pastor Ayo should be most concerned about what GOD is thinking and saying about him,not government exoneration. We should be concerned about the Souls……………. God have MERCY

    I am not surprised that CAN President is using such issue to fight back. Marriage is not easy to control BC youbare dealing with another human being who has will power. But where is the integrity of CAN President? Its shameful. He should cover his face with shame. U re either on the Lord side or on the govt side. No govt has done the wish of the Lord.
