Anglican Communion Makes Position On Electronic Transmission Of Election Results, Southeast President


The Anglican Diocese of Umuahia has joined other Nigerians to call on the National Assembly to approve the Electronic transmission of election results henceforth.

In his Presidential address at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Amakama, Olokoro East Archdeaconry in Umuahia South L.G.A, of Abia State, during the 12th Diocesan Men conference with the theme, “Wake Up The Mighty Men”, drawn from the Bible book of Joel chapter 3 verse 9, Bishop Ibeabuchi hinted that the Electronic transmission of election results will be one of the ways to restore the confidence of Nigerians that, “Our elections will be free, fair and credible”.

His words, “As we gradually approach the year 2023, the political climate in our nation is gradually changing. Most people in government have already abandoned governance in pursuit of their dreams for the year 2023.

“The year 2023 will afford us as a nation another opportunity to choose our leaders and we cannot afford to be sentimental this time. Buying and selling of votes must be completely avoided. Politics is not a dirty game as perceived by some people. Man in himself is a political being. We therefore encourage all fathers and citizens to get involved, register in any party of your choice and be part of the selection process from the ward to national levels”.

Bishop Ibeabuchi disclosed that the Diocese has joined the call for power shift to the South and Southeast in particular. 

According to him, “This marginalization must stop if we are really Nigerians as they want us to believe”. 

Bishop Ibeabuchi informed that the Diocese totally support the stand of the Southern Governors and the government of Abia State on the ban of open grazing.
Bishop Ibeabuchi said, “The most terrible thing I have seen in this discuss is that men in leadership of our country could sit down to compare AK47 killer herdsmen with peaceful spare parts dealers.

” We therefore call on the leadership of Southern Nigeria to not only sign the anti open grazing law but to ensure its implementation across the region”, Bishop Ibeabuchi further urged them.
