We Have 300 Trained Observers for 2019 Elections- CAN
The president revealed that it has registered with the Independent Electoral Commission(INEC) as an observer.
He said this on Tuesday, November 13, during a courtesy visit to Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson but received by John Jonah, deputy governor of the state.
Appealing for peace and order during the elections, Reverend Ayokunle added that the monitors where from different geo-political zones of the country.
Warning that the desperation of candidates might set the nation on fire if not curbed, he said CAN plans to place three observers in each polling booth who will continue to report to its national office.
“We are also parlaying with those in government, who can make things happen. Nigeria has to maintain peace and order to ensure free and fair election in 2019.
“From the intra-party election, the kind of desperation we see in our politician is quite unacceptable and give us palpable fear that if care is not taken, the people may set the nation on fire, God forbid.
“The church says no to any kind of violence and manipulation in this forthcoming election. And in line with that, we are not only speaking, we have decided to register with INEC as election observers.
“We are already training observers all over the federation. We have trained over 300 persons presently from all the geopolitical zones of the country and these ones will train others.
“It is our own hope that we will be able to place three observers in each polling booth so they will continue to report to us at the national office. I and my team will be visiting President Muhammadu Buhari, next week, to discuss the conduct of the election,” he said.
