CAN Calls For Prayers Over Election Postponement
Nigerians continue to react, 24 hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed the Presidential and National Assembly elections to Feb. 23 from Feb. 16.
For many, this is an opportunity to get things and indeed better than it could have been on February 16.
The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kogi chapter, Dr John Ibenu, spoke to newsmen after a church service on Sunday in Lokoja.
Ibenu appealed for calmness despite describing the postponement as being ‘unfortunate’.
“God is in charge; everything works together for good to them that love God; we should see it as part of the answers to our prayers from God.
“Those who are planning to cause violence should desist because God will bring all their works and actions to judgment,” Ibenu said.
He advised Nigerians, especially Christians, to remain calm and continue to pray fervently for peaceful and violence-free elections.
The cleric also advised Nigerians to shun all acts of electoral violence and malpractice and in all places before, during and after the elections.
He urged Christians to vote for candidates who would stand for righteousness, peace, joy, security, job creation, unity and progress of Nigerians.
