Kaduna State Governor Mukhtar Yero has urged religious leaders to educate their followers on proper conduct ahead of the 2015 elections.
Yero spoke, Monday, when the leadership of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna.
According to him, leadership comes from God. People must therefore learn to allow the will of God to always prevail.
He noted that the Church had a role to play in ensuring peaceful elections. He therefore urged the Christian leaders to preach peace, love and mutual coexistence before, during and after the election, so as to engender growth and development in the state and the country.
He prayed for a peaceful Christmas celebration, and wished the people of the state happiness.
State Chairman of CAN, Rev. Fr George Dodo, who spoke earlier said the visit was in the spirit of Christmas, to share the message of peace, solidarity and pray for the administration.
He lauded the governor for the peaceful conduct of the political parties’ primaries across the state and prayed for the peaceful conduct of the polls in 2015.
