CAN Calls For Prayers Aimed At Ensuring Credible Elections

Published

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has appealed to all Christians in the country and those in the diaspora to begin a prayer programme for the success of the rescheduled elections.

The prayer programme according to the association which starts from 19 February, 2019 and ends on Sunday, 24 February, 2019 will  focus on seeking a transparent, free, fair and credible election  better than that of 2015.

A statement made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday in Abuja signed by the CAN president, Dr Samson Ayokunle said the unfolding scenario in the political scene is not ordinary and there is a need for the Church to intercede for Nigeria.

Ayokunle urged Christians to pray to avert some evil forces that are plotting against the election.

He said if it was about the things they see in the spirit, he is not sure that elections will hold at all.

The statement reads in part: ‘’Oh that Leah Sharibu will be freed along with others captives through God’s divine intervention and touch and move the hearts of all Boko Haram, government, her parents and those whom God will use to free her.

‘’That the elections will hold as re-scheduled – with God disgracing the forces of evil across the land thwarting the plans of those who are bent on sabotaging the will of the people and God’s will for Nigeria. That this election will not lead to war in our nation.

‘’Prayers for security of lives and property, safety for all election umpires, observers, monitors and the need for them to stay unbiased during the elections. That the security agents will not intimidate voters nor allow themselves to be used by any politician or political party for election manipulation. That INEC will not compromise its integrity throughout the period of the elections.

‘’That the logistical movement of election materials across the country will go according to plan, safe delivery, and the security of the items until election day.’’
