The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, has said political parties will not determine who Nigerians vote as President in the 2023 election.
Okoh stated this on Sunday while delivering his sermon at the 2022 men’s conference of Christ Holy Church International, titled, ‘By faith, give leadership.’
He said Nigerians have gone beyond voting based on the political party presenting candidates.
According to the clergyman, Christians would vote for candidates in the next general election using their current capacities and antecedents as criteria.
Okoh said, “It is important that people of God at this time should have their eyes open. Before casting your votes, make sure you know the people you are giving your votes.
“In Nigeria, things are beginning to change. Gone are those days when people vote based on the political party fielding the candidate; when once you have the ticket of a particular party, you are covered.
“Today, people are looking at individuals, their credibility, character, experience, capacities and antecedents in relation to the positions they want to occupy.”
