Take advantage of Continuous Voters Registration – CAN Chairman Tells Nigerians

Rev. Bulus Dauwa Yohanna, Catholic Bishop of Kotangora Diocese in Niger State, has urged Nigerians who have yet to be registered to vote to take advantage of a recent court ruling ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to continue the suspended Continuous Voters Registration.

Rev Bulus, the new Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Niger State chapter, made the call during a familiarization visit to the leadership of the Niger State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Correspondents Chapel in Minna.

Speaking to journalists, he said: “As you already know, we are in a critical period of our nation’s history, as insecurity of life and property lingers and with the 2023 general elections approaching, we urge you to remain resolute in your reportage”.

On the purpose of his visit, the cleric said: “The reason for my visit is to first, thank you for the unflinching support and coverage you have accorded CAN Niger State. Since my emergence as Chairman, I, my executive members and the entire Christendom have enjoyed tremendous support and coverage from your organisations. As a religious Body, we have enjoyed a superlative relationship and we want that to continue”.

Rev. Yohanna solicited for more synergy and cooperation between CAN and members of the Chapel, saying, “this is because journalists are a major stakeholder.”

The chairman of the Niger State CAN then urged members of the public who have not registered to do so, especially in light of the recent court order directing the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to immediately resume Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR) until 90 days before the 2023 general election.

To the journalist, he said: “I want you to help us through your medium sensitize the general public and those of registration age who are yet to get registered.”

He also urged them to maintain rigorous professionalism and responsible journalism in order for voters to make educated choices among the candidates running for various electoral offices.

Rev. Yohanna added:” I want to use this opportunity to call on the government to hasten the employment of more journalists, and of course engage more staff into other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).”
