The Niger State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has called on Nigerians to pray for the health and safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The state’s Chairman, Rev Echioda Mathias, stated this while speaking with reporters in Minna the state capital. Mathias reminded Nigerians and especially Christians that the Holy Bible calls us to pray for our leaders.
He said, “It is God, who made Buhari our leader; therefore, we should imbibe the habit of praying for his well-being. Let us pray he gets well completely and returns quickly to continue with the good work he has been doing; we believe God will heal him,’’
Speaking in respect to the security concern in the nation, he called for peaceful co-existence amongst citizens irrespective of religious or ethnic differences.
“Nigerians should learn to live in harmony in spite of religious or ethnic differences; they should also be patriotic to move the country forward. Security is a collective responsibility; therefore, as individuals, we must contribute positively toward the development of the country and make it a better place,’’ he said.
