CAN: Bishop Stephen Mamza Re-elected for a Second Term

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Adamawa State, Bishop Stephen Mamza, has won the election to retain his office for a second term.

Stephen Mamza who is the Catholic Bishop of Yola was reelected on Thursday by the Adamawa State chapter of CAN in an election that comprised 83 delegates.

The 83 delegates, drawn from the 21 local government areas of the state and the 5 blocs of CAN, gathered at the CAN Secretariat, Yola and unanimously supported Bishop Mamza.

By his reelection, Mamza will be leading the state chapter of CAN in the next three years for his second term.

His first term as CAN chairman will be remembered by Christians for initiation and building of a huge CAN Secretariat in Jimeta, the heart of Adamawa State capital, Yola.

Bishop Stephen Mamza hit the newspaper headlines in August when he tested positive to Coronavirus and spoke to the press about his status.

He called on the press again about two weeks later to announce his recovery from the infection and to create awareness on its reality and existence.

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State had commended Bishop Stephen Mamza then, for publicly declaring his COVID-19 positive status.

Governor Fintiri had commended Bishop Mamza’s openness and said his action would spread the message to the doubting masses, against the backdrop that many people in the state still do not believe in the reality of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas has congratulated the newly reelected chairman, Bishop Stephen Dami Mamza. Namdas who is one of the members of the House of Representatives from Adamawa state described Bishop Dami’s reelection as a true reflection of his good leadership qualities.

“Bishop Mamza’s reelection is a testament of his purposeful leadership and a good result of the positive changes he has caused not only to the christian community but Adamawa state as a whole within the last three years,” Namdas said.
