The Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) has elected Borno born Rev. Dr. Amos Mohzo as its new Vice President.
Mohzo, the current General Secretary of the international Church was elected following the retirement of the current Vice President, Rev. Dr. Obed Dashan.
A Committee set to oversee the election had received 103 nominations from across the church’s regions and departments.
Out of the nominations, Rev. Dr. Amos Mohzo got 57, Rev. Dauda Jimra, the current Deputy General Secretary of the Church got 30 and Rev. Dinfa Mamshal got six, becoming the top three Candidates.
After the election on Friday, Chairman of the Electoral Committee, retired Justice Philomena Lot, announced that Rev. Dr. Mohzo polled a total of 175 votes out of the total of 269 valid votes cast to become the new Vice President of the Church.
Rev. Dauda Jimra polled 71 votes while Rev. Dinfa Mamshal scores 24 votes. Mohzo’s election has automatically created a vacuum in his current office. But elections might not be conducted until May when he officially takes over from Rev. Obed Dashan.
