The Christian Conscience, a non-denominational and non=government group has expressed commitment to the success of the 2023 electoral process even as it urged Nigerians to imbibe a God-fearing culture.

The group made the commitment at the end of its monthly meeting at Ikeja, Lagos on Friday, February 4.

In a statement jointly signed by its National Chairperson, Dr. Mrs. Yetunde Akinluyi, and the National Secretary, The Revd Dr. Kolawole Verrals, the group said many programmes have been outlined in the build-up to 2023.

“These programmes will sensitize the citizens, politicians, and relevant organs of government that will be involved in the political processes.

“We intend to achieve this through symposia, workshops, road shows, and lectures, not only in Lagos but in some states of the federation”

Followers and leaders collaboration

The group noted however that there is a need for both the followership and the leadership to collaborate for good governance and a successful democratic process.

Part of the statement reads, “It is the desire of everyone to have a nation where there is peace, justice, and a viable economy. The only way that could be a reality is when the followers cooperate with the leaders. We are in a situation in our nation where we can’t continue the blame game. Every hand has to be on deck to see to the progress of the nation. That is why we are appealing to all Nigerians to cooperate with leaders at various levels for the good of the nation.”

The group further admonished all Nigerians to have mutual respect for one another. “We want to appeal to Nigerians to respect one another. We also want to appeal to those who are seeking elective positions to make the love of humanity a priority. It is when leaders have the love of the people that they can govern right.”

Christian Conscience also noted that the need for godly principles in governance cannot be overemphasised.

The group then called on all Nigerians to fully participate in the 2023 electoral processes.

The Christian body states, “It is when we go out to exercise our civic rights that we can usher in the desired change. It is the only way we can facilitate a national rebirth”
