AHEAD of the February 16th election, the Coalition of Christian Groups for Good Governance in Nigeria and Diaspora (COCGGDN) on Thursday, endorsed the Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and called on Christians to vote him.
The Christian group said the decision became necessary because it has observed with dismay and a sad feeling of nostalgia the dismal performance of this administration under President Mohammadu Buhari.
The President of COCGGDN Engr Daniel Kadzai while reading the Communique of the Coalition at the end of its meeting in Abuja, listed the ills in the Buhari led administration to include Nepotism, premature retirement of Christians, unfulfilled promise of ending Boko Haram in 4 years and lack of will power to resolve the killings by Fulani Militia.
“The presidency is indeed surrounded by the President’s Kinsmen as well as his appointment of key functionaries suspected to be having one form of relationship or the other to the President.
“The Premature retirement of Christians and other qualified Nigerians as well as the one-sided and half-hearted prosecution of the war against corruption.
“The unfulfilled promises to decimate Boko Haram more than 4 years after taking the oath of office and the non-release of Leah Sharibu as well as the remaining Dapchi and Chibok Girls. We wish to ask Mr President; where are Leah Sharibu and the other abducted girls.
“The lack of will and resolve to restrain or put to order the Fulani militia and other criminal elements. The general level of poverty and unemployment as a result of non-performance in the economic sector.
“The total neglect, non-inclusion and systematic persecution of Christians. Policies that led to exclusiveness and resulting into divisiveness across the regional and religious line as never before in Nigeria”, the Coalition said.
Following the shortcomings of the present government, the Coalition listed, it, therefore, said they reject the candidacy of President Muhammadu Buhari and endorse Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as their candidate for Nigerian presidential election.
“Fellow Nigerians, with recourse of the sliding of Nigeria to economic decline, further insecurity with the prevalent increase of Fulani militia, kidnap and armed robbery, the divisiveness of government, lack of adherence to rule of law and social justice, we have resolved to practice to restore Nigeria.
“While complimenting the role and efforts of the Nigerian Christian Elders forum, the Middle Belt forum, the Afenifere Elders and the Coalition of South-South Leadership, we hereby state our position unequivocally clear and without inhibition today Thursday 14th February 2019, two days to the Presidential election.
“On behalf of our networking partners and leaders who are also signatories to this communiqué, we have resolved to support and endorse the election of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Dr Peter Obi as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the Coalition affirmed.
