Lagos, 20 March, 2022 / 5:21 pm (ACI Africa).
Religious leaders under the auspices of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Oyo State chapter, have urged the people of God in the West African country to register as voters to guarantee their active participation in next year’s general elections.
“INEC will not count prayers, INEC will not count fasting, INEC is only interested in your vote as such they can work with to ensure Justice; God will not come down to elect for the masses; He only need you to pray and carefully obtain your voters card while you do the voting,” CAN leadership in the Nigerian State says.
Officials of the Christian entity that includes representatives of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) emphasize the need for obtaining voter’s card and turning out to vote as the only legitimate way of exercising patriotic rights to vote for the right person for the right reason.
They caution voters against exchanging their votes for money saying that such an act will only maintain the challenging situation in the country rather than resolve it.
