The leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) are set to meet with the leading 2023 presidential candidates in Abuja on Wednesday (today).

CAN President, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel Okoh, made this known at the opening of a presidential dialogue in Abuja on Tuesday, with the theme ‘A Prosperous and Peaceful Nigeria Founded on Justice and Freedom for All.’

Okoh said CAN leadership would meet with the presidential flagbearers of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and Labour Party, Peter Obi.

The CAN President said the essence of the dialogue is to ensure that all the presidential candidates understand the concerns of Nigerian Christians and propose policies and programmes to address them.

Okoh said the Christian body had spent time to review the problems that hindered peace and progress in the country and articulated suggestions on how best to resolve them.

The CAN leader said the country is facing a crisis of development and governance, stressing that incoherent constitutional and institutional framework of the country are responsible for the crisis.

He said, “We have consulted with Nigerians of diverse religious, ethnic and social identities on the problems of the country and the solutions to them have been articulated in the strategic document we call the Charter for Future Nigeria.

“The document considers this incoherence in political, social, and economic dimensions. It makes genuine recommendations for resolving Nigeria’s recurrent crises that borders on justice and fairness, equality of all ethnic and religious groups, equal access to basic economic and social rights, political freedom and an egalitarian and just social order.”
