Continue Praying for Buhari, CAN Urges Christians


It is no more news that the president is on an extended vacation leave in the United Kingdom since January 19, 2017. From a phone call made through to the president by the Kano state Governor during a prayer session yesterday, made Nigerians feel relieved when they heard the president saying “I am getting better now”.

In the same spirit, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has asked its members to continue praying for President Muhammadu Buhari until he returns back to the country.

According to Naij, the CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, on Thursday, February 23 in Abuja, urged all well-meaning Nigerians especially Christians not to cease praying for the president, the acting president and the country until he (Buhari) returns in good health and sound mind.

It is said that Ayokunle gave the advice in a statment issued and signed on his behalf by his special assistant on media and communications; Peter Adebayo Oladeji and the statement read:

I call on all well meaning Nigerians, especially Christians not to cease praying for President Muhammadu Buhari as he takes further rest as advised by his doctors until he returns back to the country hale and hearty to continue his good works.

It is needless reminding you that as Christians, our responsibilities include but not limited to making supplications, prayers, and intercessions, and giving thanks for our leaders and for all that are in the position of authority, ‘that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour…’” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

Furthermore, Ayokunle has this to say because of the fear alleyed by some that the absent of the president has left a vacuum:

We don’t see the need for any hue and cry being made by some people that his unprecedented absence could create a vacuum in the presidency since President Buhari has done what is needful by transferring power to the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo who is up to the task.

The Church should also continue praying for him for divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding as he discharges his constitutional responsibilities,
