2023: Match your words with action, CAN tasks presidential candidates
Written by Adewale Adeyemi on November 25, 2022
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called on all the candidates running for the highest office in the land in next year’s general elections to match words with action and fulfill their commitments to the suggestions it put forward as solutions to the crisis of development and governance facing the nation.
Recall that the apex Christian body had consulted with Nigerians of diverse religious, ethnic, and social classes on the problems of the country as well as the possible solutions to them, and articulated these ideas in a document it christened, ‘The Charter for a New Nigeria’.
The position of CAN on certain national issues based on this document was presented to the presidential candidates at the just-concluded interactive session with them held in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
However, in a statement on Thursday, the CAN President, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel Okoh, urged the presidential candidates who have made up their minds to execute the suggested solutions to the country’s challenges as spelt out in the charter to walk that talk seriously, if elected in 2023.
