CAN youths push for South/North presidential ticket


Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN), on Wednesday expressed its readiness to support any political party with a Christian and Muslim presidential ticket.

In a communique signed by its National President, Belusochukwu Enwere and made available to reporters at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja, the youth insisted there was a need for justice, fairness and equity in the country.

According to him, YOWICAN was currently working on updating the existing database of Christian youths nationwide, towards a robust sensitisation of the citizens, especially the youth, with the view to ensuring that all eligible youths procure their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC).

He said: “YOWICAN asserts that rotation of the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria will promote unity and concord, as such the emergence of a Christian/Christian ticket or a Muslim/Muslim ticket in 2023 will not be a true expression of equity, fairness and justice for Nigeria and Nigerians.

“YOWICAN commits to take her message to the grassroots and awaken her structures down to the wards/units, for the actualisation of the 2023 divine agenda.

“YOWICAN shall, in addition to engaging her members in ceaseless prayers, proceed with action to support a presidential candidate that will save and deliver this dying country of ours from its present state.”

Bothered about the rising cases of insecurity and domestic abuse in the country, the religious group said its leadership was embarking on a national tour to seek God’s intervention over the bleeding state and anarchy in the country through prayer crusades.

They further urged the government and security agencies to approach “all people who have made statements/assertions claiming to know the bandits, terrorists and criminals and/or their camps or hideouts; to come and assist in fishing out these evil people.

“Despite the efforts so far made in combating crime, YOWICAN observes the urgent need to curb the rising wave of attacks, killings, destruction of lives, properties, farmlands and livelihood of innocent citizens within the Northern states, specifically within Christian communities.

“If this malady is not checked, there is every likelihood that farming and economic activities will be crippled in 2022 farming season, and do so much harm to our country.”
