The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says it believes democracy remains the most suitable form of government for Nigeria.

Daniel Okoh, CAN president, in a statement on Wednesday to commemorate Nigerias 25th democracy anniversary, congratulated the people and leadership of the country on the occasion.

Okoh noted that Nigeria’s democracy is not without challenges.

He listed insecurity, economic hardship and social injustices as some of the issues that continue to plague the country and its residents.


“As we celebrate 25 years of uninterrupted democracy in Nigeria and the 31st anniversary of the widely acclaimed ‘freest and fairest’ presidential election of June 12, 1993, the national leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) congratulates the government and people of our great nation,” the statement reads.

“Our democracy has been tested by the fires of adversity, from the struggles of its early years to the present-day trials of insecurity, economic hardship, and social injustice. Nevertheless, we remain steadfast in our belief that democracy is our nation’s best form of government.

“However, we must acknowledge that our democracy still faces significant challenges. Insecurity, economic hardship, and social injustice continue to afflict our citizens. We emphasise the importance of integrity, transparency, and accountability in governance.”


Okoh reminded Nigerian leaders that they will be made to account for their actions while in power.

He further called on the public to unite in building a better Nigeria.

“Our leaders must recognise that power is a sacred trust, and they will be held accountable for their actions. We also stress the need for unity and inclusivity, recognising the value of our diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds,” he said.

“Let us work together to build a stronger, more just Nigeria, where everyone has a voice and equal opportunities. Let us work together to build a brighter future for ourselves, our children, and generations yet unborn,”
