The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on Nigeria and other countries to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Samson Ayokunle, CAN President, made this call on Tuesday in Abuja in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Adebayo Oladeji.
Mr Ayokunle, while commending the Israeli government on the 70th anniversary of their country, said the relocation of the capital to Jerusalem was “Special Anniversary Present from the God of the Patriarchs.”
According to him, the declaration made by President Donald Trump on December 6, 2017 was a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
“It is our prayers that other countries including Nigeria will relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“We appreciate the leadership role of the United States in the landmark historic event.
“We are happy that countries such as the United States of America, Guatemala, Honduras, Romania and Paraguay have relocated their embassies from Tel Aviv,’’ he said.
