He noted that the dialogue with the politicians ahead of the 2023 general elections is remarkable and provided a platform to collectively review and understand the crisis of development and governance facing the nation and find a lasting solution to them.

“Having consulted with Nigerians of diverse religious, ethnic and social class on the problems of the country and the possible solutions to them, CAN articulated these ideas in a document we christened, The Charter for a New Nigeria. The position of CAN on certain national issues based on this document was presented to the presidential candidates,” the statement said.

Okoh charged those among the presidential candidates, who have decided to execute the suggested solutions to the crisis facing the country as spelt out in its charter to walk that talk seriously, if elected in 2023.

CAN did not, however, fail to mention that Nigeria’s next helmsman will be under serious pressure to make an immediate impact upon assumption of office next year.

“Let no one get it twisted, the engagement with the 2023 presidential candidates was neither a campaign programme nor an endorsement event,” the statement said.

CAN said that its position on national issues is not limited to members of the Christian faith but for all Nigerians no matter the faith.
