The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State chapter, has called on eligible voters in the state to vote for leaders that will improve the fortunes of the state and make it safe and prosperous in the March 18 governorship and House of Assembly election.
Rev. John Joseph Hayab, the state chairman of CAN, in a statement, said, “Let us vote for leaders that will improve the fortunes of the state and build a safe, inclusive, secure and prosperous state.”
CAN, therefore, entreated the citizenry to resist the temptation of incitement as there can be only one winner at the end, saying that the candidates need to uphold the spirit of sportsmanship aimed at building a state that all will be proud of before, during and after the elections.
The association also demanded that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, be neutral, just and truly independent to redeem its tinted image resulting from the concerns of lack of transparency in the just concluded polls, adding that INEC must ensure compliance with the provision of the Electoral Act as amended.
He called on all eligible voters in the state to come out to vote for the candidates of their choice, especially aspirants that have shown commitment to the peace and unity of the diverse groups of people they aspire to lead.
He applauded the voters for conducting themselves peaceably before, during and after the elections, pointing out that the turnout of first-time voters points to a high level of wakefulness by the citizenry to exercise their universal franchise.
The CAN state chairman saluted all Christians and citizenry of the state for coming out en masse to vote during the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on Saturday, 25th February 2023.
