Ahead of the scheduled November 11, governorship election in Imo State, the Concerned Church Leaders Forum, has called on the Independent National Election Commission, INEC, to ensure a peaceful, free and fair election in the state.

This is even as the Forum also called for the immediate release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Forum also  highlighted that Kanu’s release would help douse tension in the South East.

At a Press briefing  on the State of the Nation held in Owerri on Tuesday, the church leaders expressed regret the Nigeria has fallen from grace to grass especially, since 2015, adding that corruption and what it termed “a thick darkness” descended on Nigeria. The Forum hinted that “every step of recovery plunges the people into more inexplicable mess and misery.”

The church leaders flayed the humongous corruption associated with the past administration of Muhammadu Buhari.

On the raging insecurity in Imo State, the church leaders recalled how peaceful and serene the  State was in the  past, but regretted that the state has presently become a dreaded state in the country.

Calling on the citizens of the state to troop out en masse on November 11, to perform their Civic responsibility by voting according to their conscience, the forum further hinted that they would mobilise voters especially, its members in the respective church denominations to exercise their Civic responsibilities on the November 11 gubernatorial election in the state.

Meanwhile, the Concerned Church Leaders Forum has expressed deep concern about the “preponderance of Police and Army check points on the highways in the South East.” The church leaders noted with dismay that some of the security operatives allegedly “brazenly demand money from commuters.

The forum called on the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Egbetekun to put an end to the development which they described as a national scandal.
