CAN Urges Nigerians To Learn From 1993 Election, And Build True Democracy.

The Christian Association of Nigeria, often known as CAN, has asked the people of Nigeria to take the lessons that can be learned from the nullification of Chief Moshood Abiola's presidential election in 1993 and apply them to the process of constructing a truly democratic nation.

Archbishop Daniel Okoh, President of the Christian Archdiocese of Nigeria (CAN), issued the call for action in a statement yesterday. In the statement, he underlined the necessity of addressing challenges such as insecurity, corruption, poverty, and unemployment.

He urged all of the country's residents to collaborate in order to achieve the nation's overarching objective of creating a better Nigeria.
The words of Okoh were as follows: "As we mark this year's Democracy Day on June 12th, I want to acknowledge the sacrifices made by our past heroes who fought for democracy in our land."Their efforts and sacrifices were necessary in order to pave the path for the democratic government that we now take for granted. It is imperative that we do not overlook their sacrifices or the role they played in securing our freedom.

On this day, we also recall the annulment of the free and fair election of Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola as president on June 12, 1993. This event took place on this day 23 years ago.

This incident was a turning point in the history of our country, and it serves as a reminder to us that, as responsible citizens, we are obligated to defend the democratic principles of justice and fairness at all times.

"As Nigerians, we have a responsibility to reflect on the events of June 12 and work toward the goal of creating a society in which democracy is deeply rooted.

It is imperative that we set aside our religious and cultural differences in order to work toward the common goal of making Nigeria a better place. Our government officials must to put the requirements of the populace first and make certain that they are answerable to the people whom they represent.In addition, while we commemorate Democracy Day, we need to be mindful of the fact that we have a long way to go before we can call ourselves truly democratic.

"It is imperative that we find solutions to the problems of insecurity, corruption, poverty, and unemployment that plague our nation. These issues, which affect everyone in Nigeria, need to be addressed as quickly and earnestly as possible.

"I am calling on each and every one of my fellow Nigerians to do what they can to contribute to the growth of our nation.

It is incumbent upon each of us to act as responsible citizens and to work toward the goal of securing a brighter future not only for ourselves but also for future generations. Let us continue to pray for our country and work together to make the future a better place.
