The Nupe Christian Fellowship International group has urged Nigerians to vote only credible leaders in the 2023 general elections.
The group said this in a seven-point speech released at the end of the four-day annual conference in Bida, Niger, on Sunday.
The report, signed by its president Jacob Tsado and administrative secretary James Haruna, said Nigerians, especially Christians, to take advantage of the upcoming elections to vote for credible leaders.
While praising the government for its commitment to fighting insecurity in Nigeria, the group called for greater efforts to win the war.
He emphasized the need to focus on these issues, which have led to the loss of lives and property and to economic hardship.
He called on the people of Nigeria, especially Christians, to unite in the face of insecurity and other challenges.
The group also admonished Christians to take their spiritual lives seriously.
“The conference observed the near absence of spiritual activities in the church, especially prayers, quality worship and sound teaching,” it stated. “The conference advised Christians to rededicate their lives to God, while urging youths to think out of the box in technology and business entrepreneurship.”
The group’s event is an annual conference that brings all Nupe Christian denominations together. The 2022 conference focused on various activities, including teachings, Bible studies, praises, prayers, sermons.
Meanwhile, the guest speaker at the conference, Jonah Kolo, urged Christians to look up to God at all times.
