Rising cooking gas prices, electricity tarrif will inflict hardship on Nigerians, CAN tells FG

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says rising electricity tariff and cooking gas will inflict economic hardship on Nigerians.

CAN, in a communiqué, signed by Joseph Daramola, its general secretary, on Saturday, asked security agencies to always respond quickly to distress calls from Nigerians and commended the timely rescue of kidnapped University of Abuja students.

Concerning the 2023 elections, CAN encouraged Nigerians to take advantage of the continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to prepare their voters’ cards for elections.

It also expressed worry over the extortion of returning Nigerians at the country’s airports and asked the federal government to provide an efficient payment scheme.

The national executive council appreciates the recent efforts of the Security agencies for the prompt action taken to rescue the staff members of the Federal University of Abuja who were recently kidnapped,” the communiqué reads.

CAN challenges the security agencies to respond quickly to distress calls and protect the lives and properties of Nigerians.

It further calls on the federal government to do all it can to release the abducted innocent people in captivity unconditionally without further loss of lives.

On the need for prompt action by security agencies, CAN also wishes to advise the federal, states, and local government areas to immediately initiate an all-inclusive security dialogue with all stakeholders. This will help towards finding a lasting solution to the security challenges.

CAN acknowledges the resilience of Nigerians in view of the prevailing economic hardships and insecurities in the country and advises the federal government to not worsen the situation with increasing electricity tariffs, prices of cooking gas, and merely allocating funds for maintenance of roads without corresponding visible impacts.

As the nation prepares for the electioneering campaigns towards the 2023 general elections, CAN urges all Christians and citizens that are of age to without delay take advantage of INEC’s revalidation of voters’ cards exercise and register to get their voters’ cards.

Politicians should conduct themselves in a manner that will bring peace and unity. Youths should not allow any selfish office-seeker to use them to cause violence before, during, and after the politicking exercise.

CAN advises the Federal Government to put in place a better administration of the QR Barcode reader payment required for returning to Nigeria from overseas. A situation where Nigerians are subjected to intimidation abroad because of the negligence of the duty of the officials is very embarrassing.

Also, the ugly practice by some government officials extorting money from citizens coming back home without remitting the same to government coffers must be checked.
