The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has charged electorates in Edo State to vote for integrity and prosperity in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
Addressing members in Benin City on Monday, Bishop Oriname Oyonnude Kure, CAN Chairman, Edo State chapter, urged the people to vote wisely and conscientiously without any fear or favour.
“We call on all believers in the state and the good people of Edo State to go to the poll and vote wisely and conscientiously without any fear or favour,” said Kure.
“This is the critical moment in determining the destiny of our state, Edo State bearing in mind the very future of this state, the future of our children.
”Once again, we urge all believers in the state to vote for the candidate of their choice and go peacefully.”
The CAN chairman said the association is not unaware of the political issues going on in the state particularly between the two major political parties but called political bigwigs, stakeholders and the good people of the state to take a stand.
“CAN calls on religious leaders and heads of blocs to warn their members against the use of violence that would cost the lives of souls in achieving the aspiration of their candidates as the soul that ‘killeth’ it shall die,” he added.
