The Christian Council of Nigeria, Cross River State has held its 12th Annual Interdenominational Thanksgiving Service after inauguration of its new State Executives.

“I must confess that I’m most humbled to stand before you today to present this acceptance speech on the inauguration of the new executive of CCN, Cross River State chapter with me at the steering seat. I am indeed humbled because of the confidence you have reposed on me to be your leader and to continue from the lofty strides made by the Archbishop Tunde Adeleye led administration.

“I thank most importantly, the immediate past Chairman, His Grace Archbishop Tunde Adeleye for his fatherly and passionate administrative skill in always bringing CCN in the State to work as a family. It is work placing on record your execution of your heavenly mandate of steering the ship of CCN in the State gloriously. I will need God’s grace and our collective prayers and support to fit into your big shoe.”

Speaking on the way forward for the Council, Rev. Caifas solicited for the support of Heads of Denominations which are part of CCN, both in the State and Local Government levels and proposed the vision of the Executive for the next administration.
