The CSW family worldwide congratulated the new leaders, wishing them success as they take the organization forward.
Mervyn Thomas, the Founder President of CSW, said: “I warmly congratulate Rev Dr Gado and The Most Rev Daniel Okoh on their elections. CSWN is in excellent hands, and I look forward to working closely with them in the future to advance the right to freedom of religion or belief in Nigeria and across the world.”
