The President of the General Executive Council of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Pastor Abraham Akinosun, has declared that the leadership crisis rocking the church will soon end as his own faction was ready to reconcile with the Supreme Council faction.
He revealed that the General Executive Council, which he headed, had selected five elders to meet with the representatives of the Supreme Council to hold a reconciliation meeting in a bid to unite the two factions and end the 25-year lingering crisis.
He stated this at a press briefing at Ikeji Arakeji, Osun
State, after the Ikeji 1 Pastors’ Conference.
The clergyman also blamed some leaders in the church whom he accused of benefiting from the crisis, alleging that they were the ones thwarting the process of reconciliation and frustrating all the efforts to bring unity back into the church.
“They are blaming us that we are the ones that did not give way for reconciliation, which is not true. They said we should bring five people to meet their own five people to deliberate on the way forward . Our own five elders are ready but we did not see their own. So we are ready for reconciliation to move the church forward,” Akinosun stated.
“At this year’s conference, we initially thought we are going to do it together but unfortunately, we did not see them. They are saying we
are not ready before but now we are ready for unity, they are the ones that are not ready for true reconciliation.”
Speaking on the state of the nation, the CAC leader urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to make his political appointments lopsided and let all Nigerians feel the positive impact of his administration equally irrespective of ethic, religious or political affiliation.
He called on Nigerians to support the current administration of Buhari for the betterment of the country, noting that 100 days was too early to judge any government that would spend four years.
