The Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on Christians across the country to pray for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari, just as it expressed deep concern over ongoing discussions on his absence due to ill-health.
CAN in a statement on Thursday through its Director of Legal and Public Affairs, Evangelist (Barr.) Kwamkur Samuel called on Nigerians to join hands in prayers for the quick and full recovery of Mr. President and his safe return to Nigeria “instead of dwelling on the needless rumour mongering on the President’s health.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari is human, hence he is subject to health challenges sometimes,” the statement read. CAN, also said it appreciates the anxiety of Nigerians to hear Mr. President speak, but sued for understanding.
“It is very clear that our leader is passing through health challenges. We advise the Presidency to update Nigerians on how he is fairing and the full progress of his recovery.
“We call on all Christians and indeed all God-fearing Nigerians to dedicate time of prayers for our President and the nation. We owe our leaders prayers and support at all times while shunning divisive opinions that only generate strive.”
CAN, also called on Nigerians to give the Vice President who is also the Acting President full support and prayers to lead well.
“We acknowledge that government is a continuum, hence, we call on Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to be bold in handling critical state matters and not to be distracted by those who do not wish Nigeria well,” CAN advised.
