The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has dissociated itself from the Sunday, July 14, solidarity visit of two of its members to the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
CAN made its position on the visit known in a statement by its national director of legal and public affairs, Evangelist Kwamkur Samuel Vondip.
The statement obtained from social media said the solidarity visit by two clergymen to the church had nothing to do with the body as the pastors who addressed the church went there in their personal capacities.
