The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared Friday, April 25, as a day of fasting and prayer for peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.

The association in a statement signed by the National President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor and released in Abuja, decried the high spate of bombing and general insecurity in the nation, opining that only supplication to God that can salvage the country.

Oristejafor urged Christians to particularly use Friday to pray against Boko Haram and for God to expose them and their sponsors.

He also urged Nigerians to pray for the quick recovery of victims of Nyanya bomb blast still at various hospitals as well as for the release of the remaining abducted schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, from the hands of their abductors.

The CAN President equally requested Nigerians to pray for general peace of the land and to pray for repentance of wicked people who are bent on creating tension in the country.
