Ahead of the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State
, worshipers in various Sabbath Churches in the State who never participated in elections because of the fact that elections normally hold on Saturdays which is their worship day have changed their stand and declared their intention to participate in voting during the November 6, 2021 governorship election in the State.
The Sabbath Churches operating under the umbrella of Sabbath Association of Nigeria (SAN) Anambra State chapter changed their stand on election participation in a communique signed by the State Chairman of Anambra SAN Ven. Dr Elisha Esimoneze along with Chairman Civic & Social Welfare Committee of SAN Anambra State, Rt Rev Nonso Onyeagba and the Organising Secretary Ven Amb. Arinze Chukwuka Victor and made available to Journalists.
Having made up their mind to participate in voting on November 6 election the Sabbath worshipers vowed to mobilize no fewer than one hundred thousand votes in support of their preferred candidate.
“The decision to start participating in elections in born out of their desire to contribute their quota to the democratic process in particular and to the development and progress of Anambra State in general.
“The Anambra SAN has agreed and given a directive to all worshipers in Sabbath Churches in the State who are of voting age to go and obtain Permanent Voter Card (PVC) and get ready to come out and perform their civic responsibility by participating in voting at the polling booths during the election on November 6. Having decided to vote we are sure of not less than 100 thousand votes from our Churches across the State,” the communique reads in part.
Assuring that the Anambra SAN will back up the election with prayers for peace to prevail during and after the exercise, the Sabbatarians also advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
to ensure that every vote count during the election.
They also called on security agencies to ensure tight security during the election and equally called on the youth to reject offer of thuggery work from desperate politicians as thuggery is capable of destroying their future
