CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MOVEMENT OF NIGERIA (CSMN)
MESSAGE TO NIGERIANS
AFTER THE SUPREME COURT JUDGMENT: ADVOCACY FOR DEMOCRACY CRUCIAL
Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN) wishes to join generality of Nigerians in expressing grave concern on the assault on Democracy in Nigeria. The judgment of the Supreme Court validating the 2019 Presidential Election has not been helpful. In his response to the judgment, Atiku Abubakar said, “in a democracy, you need a strong Judiciary, a free press and an impartial electoral umpire. Nigeria has none of those three elements as at today.”
Christian Social Movement of Nigeria and National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) have consistently maintained that the problem of Nigeria is the conflict between Democracy and Sharia ideology. It is evident that Sharia is the ideology presently employed to run Nigeria, not Democracy. The 2019 Election is proof of Sharia not Democracy.
