The Christian Association of Nigeria in the 19 Northern states and Abuja, on Thursday, said Nigerians are living in hell as a result of the weak economy under the current administration of the All Progressives Congress.

According to the association, the weak economy has thrown millions of Nigerians into abject poverty and hunger such that Nigerians can hardly afford a square meal per day.

All these, the Northern CAN noted, remain a recipe for “criminality and crime” which negatively affect education as well as the quality of healthcare.

The religious body expressed concern that those who mismanaged the economy were using hunger as a weapon as the 2023 general elections approach.

Against this background, the Northern CAN called on Nigerians to ensure that the 2023 general elections were conducted in an atmosphere of peace, noting that “election is not war” as “no politician is worth dying for.”

This was according to a communiqué issued at the end of a two-day National Executive Council meeting of Northern CAN in Kaduna.

The communiqué was jointly signed by its Chairman, Rev. Yakubu Pam, who is also the Chairman of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission; the Secretary-General, Sunday Oibe, and released to journalists on Thursday.

The communiqué read in part, “Our weak economy has thrown millions of Nigerians into abject poverty and hunger. Life is becoming a living hell as people struggle to make ends meet. Almost daily, the prices of food and essential items are on the increase.

“There is no denying the fact that there is poverty and hunger in the land. The reality on the ground is evident for all to see. Poverty and hunger affect all spheres of life. It fuels criminality and crime; it affects education; it affects quality healthcare. Hunger affects citizens’ political choices.

“Already, those who mismanaged the economy are using hunger as a weapon as the 2023 general elections approach. We call on the government at all levels to address the problem of poverty and hunger.

“We call on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to ensure a peaceful transition at the end of his tenure in 2023. That is the enduring legacy he will leave behind.”
