Lagos CAN tasks government on security, urges members to get PVC
The leadership of the Christian Association Of Nigeria (CAN), Lagos State chapter, has called on Christians in the state who are up to voting age to go and register and get their permanent voter’s card (PVC).
The re-elected chairman of the chapter, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said recently in Lagos that Christians should no longer remain aloof, as their votes is the only legimate way they can change any government they don’t want. He noted that failing to register and vote would allow wrong people to go into government and by then, it would be too late to complain.
Frowning at the current situation in the country, he called on the political class to reflect on what the national has become under their leadership, adding that for many Nigerians, it is really a sad story.
He said: “The question that today’s political class must ask itself is: ‘Are we truly building the Nigerian nation or are we destroying it?’ What kind of Nigeria do we want to hand over to our children? I would like to remind everyone in today’s political class that no condition is permanent. Death is certain; everyone came into this world empty and will return empty. It is appointed unto man once to die and then judgment. Everyone will give account of his/her stewardship to God some day.”
Bamgbola restated the chapter’s unwavering support to the parent body on any national issue, adding that government should not allow the country to go into crisis again with its handling of Fulani herdsmen and other security issues in the country.
Appreciating the chapter’s members for reelecting him and his executives, he explained that the new leadership would reposition the association by empowering members, especially the youths, with entrepreneurial skills to make them employers of labour.
Also urging Christians to get involved in politics, the chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Sola Ore, charged churches to start bankrolling interested members desirous of seeking political positions.
He said candidates should be voted based on their pedigrees and not the party they belong.
