The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, said about 65,000 of its members in Katsina State, have commenced seven-day fasting and prayers for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari who is in the UK receiving medical attention.
CAN Chairman in the State, Rev. Nelson Onyeka Chukwu, disclosed this to journalists yesterday in Katsina.
He said the prayers would be offered at Mountain of Fire Church at Kofar-Kaura, Katsina and in six other Churches.
Chukwu said other Churches to participate in the spiritual exercise include, Church of God Mission, Calvary Baptist, ECWA, St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church, and C&S, Dutsin-ma road, all in Katsina.
He further explained that the prayers would be concluded next Sunday at St. John’s Anglican Church.
According to him, the decision was in recognition of the good work the President had started for the country.
He said, ‘’We are praying for our President’s quick recovery because of the good work he had begun for the country.”
