2019 Elections: CAN Advises Northerners To Avoid Relocation Out Of Fear



CAN Urges Kaduna State Indigenes To Avoid Panic Relocation.

Chairman, Kaduna Central Zone, of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Essein Istifanus, has ‎urged Christians in the North to stay where they are and avoid panic relocation before the forthcoming general elections.

Naija News reports that Kaduna State is still recovering from violence and attacks by unknown gunmen that it witnessed at its peak towards the end of last year.

The latest attack occurred about 48 hours ago, when unknown gun men opened fire on innocent persons who were walking along the Asso and Tanda bridge of Jema’a Local government of the state.

Istifanus, who is also the Pastor of Light House Church, said that the next general elections cannot be worse than that of 2015.

The Pastor, who disclosed this ‎at the grand finale of universal week of prayer held at St Joseph Catholic Church, Kaduna State, today, said that CAN, as a body, had been advocating to its members to stay where they were and also to ensure they collect their permanent voter’s cards as the only tool they can use to elect credible leaders.

“CAN, as a body, has been seriously praying for this country and we believe in God, that he will see us through the huddles of the election – by His grace.

“I think the worst should be over. The worst was in 2015 when people were apprehensive of what was going to happen. So many people left town. But I want to admonish everybody to stay where they are because nothing is going to happen. We will cast our votes and God will give us peace in Kaduna State and the country”, he said.
