The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has issued a heartfelt plea to the Federal Government, urging immediate action to mitigate the impact of economic hardships faced by citizens across the country.

The call came from CAN President, Daniel Okoh, in a message delivered to Christians marking this year’s Ash Wednesday, which signifies the beginning of the Lenten season – a period of 40 days of fasting and reflection in the Christian faith.

Expressing deep concern for the plight of Nigerians grappling with financial uncertainty and limited access to basic necessities, Okoh emphasized the critical need for leaders to prioritize the welfare of the most vulnerable members of society.

In his message, Okoh implored Christians to demonstrate compassion and solidarity by extending support to those in need, while also urging leaders to take decisive action in alleviating the economic burdens faced by citizens.

“We long for a Nigeria where every individual is afforded the opportunity to thrive, and where our leaders prioritize the well-being of the most vulnerable in our society,” remarked Okoh.

Emphasizing the urgency of the economic challenges facing the nation, Okoh called upon leaders at all levels of governance to implement concrete measures aimed at providing assistance to individuals experiencing economic hardship.

Furthermore, Okoh urged Christians to actively seek ways to contribute to the welfare of others during this Lenten season, emphasizing the importance of extending a helping hand to those in need and advocating for continued support from government authorities.

“It is a period for us to extend a helping hand to those in need and advocate for continuing support from our leaders in alleviating the burdens of our fellow citizens,” added Okoh.

With this impassioned appeal, CAN underscores the importance of collective action and solidarity in addressing economic hardships and fostering a more inclusive and compassionate society for all Nigerians.
