Youths in the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) in Abuja have asked Nigerians to intensify prayers for the peaceful conduct of the 2023 general elections.
They stated this at the Abuja National Mega Praise, organised by the church on Sunday.
Temilade Gideon, a youth from the Gwagwalada district of the church, called on Nigerians, particularly the leaders, to ensure all forms of differences that could hinder the election’s success.
”We need to pray to God to guide us as we move towards the 2023 general elections. The youth want progress for this country. We are calling on Nigerians, particularly our leaders, to ensure we have a free and fair election,” stated Ms Gideon. “We are also praying along this line to make sure our dreams come true.”
Also, Israel Pius, CAC Karu district, called on the National Orientation Agency (NOA) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure adequate voter education before the 2023 elections.
“We are optimistic that with adequate sensitisation from NOA, our youth would shun any forms of violence. We are eager to see a Nigeria that is working. A Nigeria where other African countries will like to learn from,” Mr Pius said.
INEC announced February 25 as the presidential and national assembly elections, while governorship and state assembly elections will now be held on March 11, 2023.
The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakub, said the new dates followed the signing of the amendments to the electoral bill by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The commission had earlier announced February 18 for the presidential election.
