The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has offered prayers for the success of the incoming administration of the president-elect and winner of the just concluded presidential election, Gen. Muhammadu Buhar (Rtd).
CAN, in a statement issued on Saturday, signed by its president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, which also doubled as its Easter message, commended the defeated President, Goodluck Jonathan for displaying a spirit of sportsmanship.
According to Oritsejafor in the statement, “the need for peace that our President, Goodluck Jonathan has demonstrated in the recently held presidential elections should be the point of reference for all our political leaders in the coming elections.
“There is nothing greater than peace and love as enunciated by God and demonstrated by our dear president. I also pray for peace for the incoming administration led by Rtd Major General, Muhammadu Buhari with optimism that Nigeria will witness peace and progress under his administration.”
The cleric also prayed for the restoration of unity and stability of Nigeria and thanked citizens for supporting the country’s leaders.
