[Abuja]–The Christian Association of Nigeria has pleaded to its members not to abandon President Muhammadu Buhari and continue remembering him in prayers as he seek further rest.
This is contained in a statement signed by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant Media and made available to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.
The CAN President, Rev Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, urged Nigerians especially Christians not to cease praying for the President, the acting President and the country until he returns in good health and sound mind.
“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.
“It is needless reminding you that as Christians, our responsibilities include but not limited to making supplications, prayers, and intercessions, for all that are in the position of authority. `That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty,” he said.
He praised the effort of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, for being up to the task by filling the vaccum, with the absence of the President. He urged Christians to pray for increased wisdom for the Acting President.
“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. 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,” he said.Please Follow Us @ThePageNg
