President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Olasupo, has expressed fear that the 2023 general elections might be truncated due to rising insecurity across the country.
His position was corroborated by the co-chairman, Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace (IDFP), Alhaji Kunle Sanni, who also raised questions about the huge sums spent by government in arms procurement in response to the insecurity across the country.
Both religious leaders spoke in Abuja, at the Inclusive Security Dialogue meeting jointly organised by Global Peace Foundation and Vision Africa as part of efforts boost social cohesion, sustainable peace and security in Nigeria.
President, Vision Africa, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, in his remarks, said Nigeria cannot conduct any meaningful election with the current level of insecurity, poverty and unemployment.
