The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr Daniel Okoh has urged Nigerians to shun arms and obtain their Permanent Voter’s Card ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to The Punch, he made the appeal on Sunday during the interdenominational church service to mark the 62nd Independence Day at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja
He argued that politicians who hand out inducements to the electorate do not care for the nation or her people as they “disappear” afterwards.
“The year 2023 is the year of our test as a nation. Rather than taking up arms to kill one another and terrifying innocent and ordinary Nigerians, adults in this nation should take up our voter’s cards and go to the polls,” he added.
He urged all Nigerians to give the Independent National Electoral Commission all the support to enable it to succeed in its assignment.
