AHEAD of the 2023 presidential election, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged political parties to balance their tickets with the two major religions.
President, Samson Ayokunle, who spoke today when CAN leadership met with Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege at the National Assembly, said the body will reject Christian/Christian or Muslim/Muslim tickets. Ayokunle told politicians not to heat up the polity with utterances as campaigns commence. He also advised them to always remember there is already tension across Nigeria due to insecurity “We urge that a balance of both religious practitioners be considered. We don’t want Christian/Christian ticket nor Muslim/Muslim ticket”, he said. Ayokunle expressed disappointment with the economic downturn and its consequences on the people. The CAN President called for quick actions and policies that will cushion the effect. “Unemployment is at an unimaginable level. While we appreciate the efforts of the legislature in calling the attention of the executive, more robust and daring efforts are required “Enabling environment should be created for investments and incentives or tax exceptions given to local manufacturers on some goods”, Ayokunle added.
