Prior to the general election, which will take place in less than a month, politicians and religious leaders in the nation have been cautioned to check their words.
There is life after the election, thus the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has come out to caution politicians and religious leaders to behave properly as they prepare for the polls.
In its new year message to Nigerians, which was penned by the organization’s president, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, CAN claimed that criminal elements had made despicable attempts to trample on Nigerians and their freedom; as a result, church leaders in particular need to be careful with their language because there will be life after the election.
According to the organization, “Our politicians should realize that we don’t have any other country but Nigeria. Consequently, this reality should inspire them to be more responsible in playing politics with the best interest of the masses at heart.
“In the same vein, religious leaders should know that there is life after the general elections of 2023.”
The CAN president thanked God for helping Nigeria survive the year 2022 and said that only God could have guided the populace through the perils and challenges of that year.
Okoh also lamented the persistent decline in the national economy as a factor in the country’s high level of unrest.
He advanced that “The outgone the year 2022 was one too many as a result of the seeming unabated climate of fear and uncertainty not just in Nigeria.”
The foremost Christian organization advised Nigerians that the year 2023 offers them a wonderful chance to put things right by electing focused and compassionate leaders who will take the nation to new heights.
The head of CAN also urged the nation’s security agencies to continue working to ensure the nation’s safety and security while the 2023 general elections are conducted.
