Tackle Insecurity, Corruption, Poverty, CAN Tells FG

As Nigerians celebrate this year’s Democracy Day, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the federal government to address the issues of insecurity, corruption, poverty, and unemployment in the country.

The president of CAN, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, in his Democracy Day message to Nigerians yesterday, said the problems of insecurity, corruption, poverty, and unemployment affect all Nigerians and must be tackled with urgency and sincerity.

Okoh acknowledged the sacrifices made by Nigeria’s past heroes who fought for democracy, adding that as Nigerians celebrate Democracy Day, they must recognise that there is still much work to be done.

This event was a watershed in our nation’s history, and it reminds us of the need to uphold the principles of democracy, justice, and fairness at all times as responsible citizens,” he said.

According to the CAN president, Nigerians must learn from the lessons of June 12 and strive to build a nation where democracy is truly entrenched.

We must put aside our religious and cultural differences and work towards the common goal of a better Nigeria. Our leaders must prioritize the needs of the people and ensure that they are accountable to the citizens they serve.”
