The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the 19 northern states has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari over his re-election.
Vanguard reports that northern CAN in a letter to President Buhari dated Friday, March 1, said Buhari’s victory showed his uprightness and transparency in governance.
The letter was signed by Yakubu Pam who is the chairman of the association.
They advised the president to “run an inclusive government as you promised under the new dispensation to unite the diverse of people of Nigeria now, more than ever before.
“Mr President sir, the Bible says to whom much is given, much is expected. We wish to appeal that you continue to be father to all in Nigeria as we look forward to seeing prosperous nation in the next 4 years of your second term in office."
Meanwhile, some Nigerians under the platform of Occupy Nigeria took over Unity Fountain, Abuja to protest the declaration of President Muhammad Buhari as winner of the just concluded presidential election.
The group on Monday, March 4, condemned in its totality the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the Saturday, February 23 presidential election which took place across states in the country.
Speaking to Legit.ng, Idris Usman, the convener of Occupy Nigeria, a coalition of civil society organisations and Nigerians from all walks of life said the decision made by INEC must be reversed and due process followed in ensuring that the vote of every Nigerian counts in the 2019 presidential election.
Usman said the group in collaboration with observers who were ground during the election observed card readers were not used at all in some states of the country.
