President Muhammadu Buhari and his Deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, are billed to join the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to seek the face of God in prayers over security and economic challenges facing  Nigeria.

Against this background, CAN has declared 15-21 November, 2016 as national days of prayers and fasting for the country being a spiritual endeavour  specially organised to bail the country out of the security and economic challenges, problem of Boko Haram terrorists and Fulani herdsmen.

It is the second time that the leadership of the Christian body  would call for national prayers and fasting sessions since the emergence of Reverend  Samson Ayokunle as its President.

The CAN President had in September called for a three-day prayers and fasting for the country to usher in the last Independence Anniversary.

In a press statement issued and signed by the Media Assistant to the CAN President, Bayo Oladeji, every Christian and all churches are expected to participate in the seven days programme.

The grand finale comes up on 21 November at the National Christian Centre with President Buhari and Professpr Osinbajo in attendance.

“Both President Muhammadu Buhari and his Deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have been invited by the CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle to participate in the grand finale of the programme on 21 November at the National Christian Centre with President Buhari and Prof Osinbajo”, Oladeji said.
