President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, says the country is facing development and governance challenges, blaming the problem on what he described as the “incoherent constitutional and institutional framework” of the country.

  He stated this during the first leg of an interactive session with 2023 presidential candidates ,organised by the apex Christian body in Abuja, on Tuesday.

  Speaking on the theme of the presidential dialogue, ‘A Prosperous and Peaceful Nigeria Founded on Justice and Freedom for All,’ Archbishop Okoh explained that CAN had spent time to review the problems that hindered peace and progress in the country and articulated suggestions on how best to resolve them.

  He said:  “We have consulted with Nigerians of diverse religious, ethnic and social identities on the problems of the country and the solutions to them have been articulated in the strategic document we call the Charter for Future Nigeria.

  “The document considers this incoherence in political, social, and economic dimensions. It makes genuine recommendations for resolving Nigeria’s recurrent crises that borders on justice and fairness, equality of all ethnic and religious groups, equal access to basic economic and social rights, political freedom and an egalitarian and just social order.”

  The cleric said that the aim of the dialogue was to ensure that all the presidential candidates understand the concerns of Nigerian Christians and propose policy and programme to address them.

  Speaking at the meeting, the presidential candidate of the Action Alliance, Hamza Al-Mustapha, identified insecurity and economic sabotage as major teething challenges that would confront the next administration. He noted that Nigeria did not need an unreliable leader.
