The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his promised commitment towards ensuring that the next general elections are free of hitches, fair and credible.
The commendation for the president was made known through a communique by the association after its first quarter meeting on Thursday, January 31, and it was signed by both Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, the spokesman of CAN president, Dr. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, Daily Trust reports.
CAN also called on president Buhari to ensure that all his promises towards making the elections free of any kind of violence are kept.
The CAN president said: “The Association calls on the INEC, the police and other security agents not to make themselves available to be used for rigging or any form of electoral malpractice by the politicians. No voter or election observer must be intimidated or harassed throughout the period of the election.
“We equally urge politicians to run away from vote buying while the electorates should not allow anybody to buy their votes.”
