….failure of the past administrations has placed the nation in a deplorable state in many fronts.
- Ayokunl urged Nigerians to continue to pray and cooperate with the newly inaugurated leaders.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the 29 state governors who inaugurated for the new tenure of office to live up to the expectations of the masses and serve without fear of favour.
The call was made by CAN President, Reverend Samson Ayokunle on Wednesday in a chat with reporters in Abuja.
The cleric pointed that failure of the past administrations at both the federal and state levels to leave personal interest to the Constitution has placed the nation in a deplorable state in many fronts.
The CA said prayed that those being sworn-in will live up to the expectations of the masses who voted them into office.
“They should not disappoint the people and make them regret voting them to power. They should live up to the expectations of the Oath of Office and the Oath of Allegiance which they swore to.They should allow the two to guide them.
Ayorinde also urged them to be faithful to the Constitution, not the party or the party leaders and serve the country without fear or favour.
“They should allow personal interest to conflict with the constitution. If they live up to this expectation, the whole country will grow, our economy will come out of the woods, and there will be peace and unity in every nook and cranny of the country.
“It is their failure to do so that has made us be not only stagnant in many areas but also the poverty capital of the world.”
Ayokunle, therefore, urged Nigerians to continue to pray and cooperate with the newly inaugurated leaders to lead right as the country enters a new dispensation.
