2023: CAN calls on its members to vote en masse

Must read

With the 2023 general elec­tions about two months away, the Christian Associ­ation of Nigeria (CAN) in Northern states and the Fed­eral Capital Territory (FCT) has urged Christians to vote en masse

It also said that the Fed­eral Government has a role to play in ensuring smooth electioneering campaigns and smooth transition with­out bloodshed.

Speaking during a prayer summit in Kaduna at the weekend, Rev. Yakubu Pam, the CAN Northern Chair­man, said that it was also the government’s responsibility to ensure a level playing field for all the candidates and voters during elections.

Rev. Pam said: “I am con­vinced that you will agree with me that this prayer summit is timely and aus­picious as it is taking place barely few months before the 2023 general elections.

“I sincerely welcome all the state CAN officials in the 19 Northern states and FCT as well as the executive members of the Northern CAN to this strategic prayer summit.”

He stressed that the time when Christians showed ap­athy to political issues was over.

“We are all enjoined to come out en masse and par­ticipate in the electioneering process of our democracy because it is the only way we can produce good leaders of our choice to lead us at dif­ferent levels.

“Christians should come out as never before to vote and be voted for in the forth­coming general election in February, 2023.
