2019: Anglican Church charges INEC on free, fair, credible elections
Condemns Killings, Insecurity In Nigeria
The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Diocese of Western Izon, Delta State, has charged Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure 2019 election is free, fair and credible.
The church, at the fourth synod of the Anglican Communion Western Izon Diocese at St. Peters Church, Bomadi, also condemned killings across the country and urged the Presidency to put an end to it.
In a communiqué signed by Rt. Revd. Edafe B. Emamezi, the synod lauded Federal Government’s efforts at stemming challenges bedeviling the nation, but urged government to quickly address some of the critical issues biting the nation, such as electricity, noting that lack of it has caused great harm to the citizenry.
With the theme “The New You”, it commended government’s fight against corruption and cautioned that approach in dealing with the menace should not be selective, as it has been observed in some cases, and that the rule of law should be followed.
The Anglican Communion sympathised with flood victims across the nation, and commended efforts of individuals and governments who helped to ameliorate the harsh effects. The government was urged to take more proactive measures in future.
