The competition which took place on Thursday, November 25 at the Hoarse Memorial Methodist Church, Yaba was organised by the Youth Wing of Lagos chapter of CAN.
It was one of the series of events put together to mark the 45 anniversary of the association. The event is also being celebrated at the national level of CAN
Winners at the Thursday competition emerged after a fierce battle of 10 contenders across the five blocs of CAN and a few Local Governments.
The anniversary also featured paper presentations, talks, panel discussions, music, and prayer sessions.
Prime officers like The Director of Women, Education, and Youth for CAN Lagos State, Special Snr. Apostle Dr. Ezekiel Daramola, The Assistant General Secretary of CAN Lagos State, Rev. Dapo Asaaju, and the Chaplain of the Lagos State Chapel of Christ the Light, Rev. Dr. Dele Ajayi were present at the event.
Also present were the Immediate Past YOWICAN Chairman, Apostle Mike Akinyoade, and the Special Adviser to the Executive Governor of Lagos State on Christian Religious affairs, Very Rev. Bukola Adeleke amongst other dignitaries.
The CPFN-PFN Bloc was represented by Stephanie Aghraghra and Bro. Adedoyin Joshua told Church Times that they didn’t study the Bible to win the quiz competition. They explained that because it had been a way of life for them, it was easy to relate with some of the questions thrown at them. They also said the event was not a competition but a challenge to deepen their relationship with God.
The Chairman of YOWICAN Lagos, Amb U.C Jumbo expressed satisfaction at the excellent delivery at the Youth summit project which was led by the Director of Youth, Education, and training and the Director of Ecumenism, Apostle Nath Aghraghra and Evang. Dosunmu Justina.
YOWICAN Executives believe somebody the event would take a bigger dimension because of the present bond among the Christian Youths in Lagos.
