The resolution to honour Andimi, according to the President of CAN, Rev Samson Ayokunle, became imperative in honour of all the Christians being killed by  Boko Haram, herdsmen, and the bandits nationwide.

A statement  by the Special Assistant (Media and Communications) to the CAN President, Adebayo Oladeji, said Ayokunle called on the body of Christ in the country, especially denominational leaders to reflect the date in their annual calendar of activities.
