NINE days after relinquishing power to Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, the immediate past National President of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, His Eminence Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor was yesterday in Warri treated to a surprise rousing welcome organised by the church members.
The man often described by his admirers as the Lion of Africa jetted to the UK shortly after handing over the baton of CAN leadership on July 20, at an impressive ceremony at the National Christian Centre in Abuja to join his holidaying family.
He returned yesterday at about 9.20 a.m. only to discover that thousands of his church members had besieged the Osubi Airport and in a carnival fashion, they travelled the distance from the airport to the Word of Life Bible Church for a reception for him.
