The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has released a total of 1000 election observers across the country to monitor the 2019 general elections.
The President of the association, Rev Samson Ayokunle, who was speaking at the Trinity Baptist Church, Ajobo, Ibadan, Oyo State, said the observers would take note of malpractices that may arise during the elections and relay same to the control room at the Christian Secretariat in Abuja.
“You know, for the first time in the history of CAN, we are sending election observers across the federation to observe how elections are going on.
“If there is any malpractice anywhere, they will report (it) immediately to the control room at the Christian Secretariat in Abuja. We are sending 1,000 election observers across the federation and we had never done that before. It costs money but we are committed to it,” he said.
He noted that except Christians take this week to engage in prayers, it was not certain the elections would hold “if it’s about the things we see in the spirit.”
“About what is happening in the country, I want you to pray very well this week. If it’s about the things we see in the spirit, it is not sure that elections will hold at all. We won’t want elections to hold like they didn’t hold; if that should happen, it would cause trouble or even lead to war,” he said.
He stressed the need for prayers against “people who think they are powerful” and were bent on sabotaging the electoral process to suit their selfish and personal interest.
CAN, however, expressed confidence in the leadership of INEC’s Chairman, Prof Yakubu Mahmood, describing him as a man who “cannot play with the collective wish of Nigerians.”
