The Catholic Bishop of Abakaliki Diocese, Rev. Peter Chukwu has prayed for peaceful free, fair, and credible elections in 2023
According to him, only a free and fair election can enable Nigerians to elect credible leaders that will solve the problems of the country.
The Bishop disclosed this on Monday while addressing journalists in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital after the inauguration of the Catholic Media Practitioners Association (CAMPAN) Ebonyi branch.
Chukwu, who also noted that the people of Nigeria have lost faith in the federal government following the spate of insecurity everywhere in the country, further condemned incessant kidnapping, killings, and destruction of churches by hoodlums in the country.
He, however, noted that people who are rational are no longer comfortable with what is happening in the country and expressed the fear that the continued existence of Nigeria as a corporate entity was under serious question mark if the situation was not solved.
“People who are rational are very uncomfortable with what is going on. So, it is very unfortunate. Appeals have not helped this government. We have lost faith in the current government to restore security.
