The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has said that its interactive session with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was to come together to review their understanding of the Nigerian crisis of development and governance and collectively find a lasting solution.
CAN President, His Eminence, Most Rev.Daniel Okoh, in his address, said that as an association of Christian citizens who believe in this country and continue to pray for its unity, peace, and prosperity, they had spent time to review the problems that hinder peace and progress in the country and are hereby making suggestions on how best to improve them.
Okoh said that the organisation has consulted with Nigerians of diverse religious, ethnic and social identities on the country’s problems, and the solutions to them have been articulated in the strategic document, the Charter for Future Nigeria.
The CAN leader noted that the charter for the country’s future starts with diagnosing its problem and locating it primarily. The organisation also released a policy document containing its expectations for politicians ahead of the elections.
“This incoherence is the main reason that the country today is almost submerged in the chaos of insecurity, instability, and economic stagnation. The document considers this incoherence in political, social, and economic dimensions,” Okoh said during the interactive meeting with the presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday.
“The document makes genuine recommendations for resolving Nigeria’s recurrent crises that border on justice and fairness, equality of all ethnic and religious groups, equal access to basic economic and social rights, political freedom and an egalitarian and just social order.”
According to him, the well-being of every citizen of the country, irrespective of their religion, ethnicity, or social pedigree, should be paramount in the agenda of politicians seeking public offices.
Okoh said that it is a concern for the CAN that presidential and other candidates in various political positions understand the concerns of Christians in the country
