The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has set aside 10th of January as a day for all Christians in the country to pray for a peaceful, free, fair and credible elections.
The declaration was made by CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle while it was also signed by Adebayo Oladeji, his special assistant on media and communications in Abuja. Rev. Ayokunle believes the program was necessary as a means to seek for God’s intervention in preventing violence, manipulation, intimidation of voters and other electoral crimes in the forthcoming general elections.
“We are to pray for all Christians contesting for one post or the other for the will of God to be done concerning their ambition; and that the powerful in our nation will not be able to manipulate the election and edge them out,” he said, then continue by saying
“That the general elections should be free, fair and credible, and without violence or any bloodshed. That God should use the process to give the country good and Godly leaders at all levels; and that every evil plan against Nigeria be frustrated.
