2023: CAN opposes Christian/Christian, Muslim/Muslim ticket

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has warned politicians and political parties dangling the carrot of Christian-Christian tickets or Muslim-Muslim presidential tickets ahead of the 2023 poll to beat a retreat.

The warning was issued by CAN President, Samson Ayokunle, when the association met with Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege at the National Assembly.

While cautioning politicians not to heat up the polity with divisive utterances during electioneering campaigns, Ayokunle said the country already has more than enough tension.

“We urge that a balance of both religious practitioners be considered. We don’t want Christian-Christian ticket nor Muslim-Muslim ticket”, he said.

This is just as the clergyman expressed disappointment with the economic downturn and its consequences on the people.

According to him, only quick actions and quality decision-making can arrest and 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”, he said.
