The Plateau chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has made it clear that it did not endorse any candidate for the upcoming gubernatorial elections in the state.
In a statement made by Rev. Fr. Polycarp Lubo, the Chairman of CAN in Plateau, urged the electorate to exercise their right to vote and choose their preferred candidate on March 11.“Concerning the governorship and the state assembly elections, be enthusiastic to come and vote en-masse the candidate of your choice in the interest of Plateau,” Lubo said. “Vote candidates who are God-fearing; have integrity and are accountable; vote for men and women of good character and who have track records and are passionate about Plateau.
“Lubo also thanked the Plateau people for their participation in the presidential election and encouraged those whose candidates did not win not to be discouraged from participating in the upcoming election.
In addition, Lubo stressed the importance of praying for the will of God to prevail during the election and warned against taking the law into one’s own hands, no matter the outcome of the election.
The Plateau CAN’s clarification on its endorsement status for the gubernatorial candidate comes as the state prepares for the highly anticipated election. The statement aims to ensure that the electorate understands that the association remains neutral and that they should vote according to their conscience.
