Pray or elections may not hold, CAN warns Nigerians

The Christian Association of Nigeria has called on Nigerians to pray this week if they want the general elections to hold .

President of the association , Rev Samson Ayokunle , made the call during a service at the Trinity Baptist Church , Ajobo , Ibadan , Oyo State capital , on Sunday.

He said , “ About what is happening in the country , I want you to pray very well this week .

If it ’ s about the things we see in the spirit, it is not sure that elections will hold at all.

We won ’ t want elections to hold like they didn’ t hold ; if that should happen , it would cause trouble or even lead to war .

“ That is why we have asked you to pray this week .

This is a week for prayers. Pray that bad people will not be involved in Nigeria’ s affairs .

About the elections, we will pray that they will not result in war or bring agony .

People who think they are powerful and want to cause problems for us , God Himself will give them problems and bind them . God will take power from them .

“ Please, pray very well this week so that the elections might be able to hold on February 23 as the INEC has said .

The postponement , to us , is a national embarrassment . ”

He added , “And not only that , it is a setback for a nation that was ready to vote in their President .

We believe however that God is still on the throne and the INEC chairman cannot play with the collective wish of Nigerians.

He cannot joke with that. Be prayerful; gather this week to pray because prayers can do a lot within this week .

If the writing on the wall , as revealed by the spirit , is anything to go by , if we don’ t pray sufficiently , elections may not hold at all. ”

INEC had on Saturday , few hours before the presidential and National Assembly elections, postponed the polls till February 23, 2019 and others earlier scheduled to hold on March 2 , 2019 to March 9 , 2019 .

Ayokunle also noted that CAN would play an active role in the elections as it would be sending 1 , 000 accredited election observers across the country.

“ You know , for the first time in the history of CAN , we are sending election observers across the federation to observe how elections are going on.

If there is any malpractice anywhere , they will report (it ) immediately to the control room at the Christian Secretariat in Abuja .
We are sending 1 , 000 election observers across the federation and we had never done that before . It costs money but we are committed to it , ” he said .
