"Don't Forget Buhari, Always Pray For Him"CAN Tells Nigerians

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has
once again asked its member to continue praying for President Muhammadu Buhari until
he returns back to the country hale and hearty from the United Kingdom where he has been
since January 10,2017.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to
the President, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in
Abuja said the results of President's medical
tests suggested further rest.
In a swift reaction to the new development, the
CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo
Ayokunle, on Thursday in Abuja, urged all well-
meaning 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.
Ayokunle, in a statement issued and signed on
his behalf by his Special Assistant (Media and
Communications); Pastor Adebayo Oladeji
reminds Christians that it is their responsibility
to pray for the country and her leaders in
season and out of season.

"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).

The CAN President also allayed fears being
expressed in some quarters that the prolonged
absence of Buhari has created a vacuum in the
Presidency cited the transfer of power to the
Vice President "who is up to the task" unlike
what happened during the Presidency of the
late Umaru Yar Adua.
"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
Meanwhile, Ayokunle called on the security
agencies to rise up to the security challenges in
the Southern Kaduna by flushing out the
hoodlums who are still killing the innocent
people despite the presence of policemen and
soldiers in the area.

"We call on the security agencies in the
country to stop the killings in Kafanchan
despite their presence in the area, we
heard of recent attacks in Atakar and
Kaninkon villages of Kaura and Jema'a
local government areas in the state".
"All hands should be on deck to flush out
those criminals from their hideouts in
order to restore a permanent peace to
the Southern Kaduna communities once
and for all."
