Presidency 2023: CAN President raises alarm over “relegation” of Christians

…Urges unity against common enemy.

…Says country needs God-fearing President in 2023.

by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is complaining that Christians are being segregated in the scheme of things ahead of the 2023 general elections.

CAN President, Daniel Okoh, made the statement when he spoke on Sunday in Anambra at the 75th Birthday Celebration of the General Overseer of Grace of God International, Paul Nwachukwu.

Okoh, in a statement made available to journalists in Kaduna Monday, charged church heads and faithful to show more interest in the processes that lead to emergence of those, who occupy positions of authority.

He noted that, Nigeria needs a God-fearing President in 2023, and advised Christians nationwide to collaborate, in order to be a force in choosing office holders.

The CAN leader stressed that, it had gotten to the point where the people have realized they have a common enemy.

“To tackle the enemy, we must make sure we break down the walls of division. We must come together in unity, close ranks as a united force and make the necessary changes in our country,” he said.

Okoh told pastors to stop concentrating on the pulpit and encourage their congregants to be part of the electoral process.

“If we really want to serve God and represent His purpose in this country, then Christians must get involved. It is time to get the righteous people into the political positions to bring the change Nigeria desires,” the CAN President added.
