The Director of Legal and Public Affairs of CAN, Evangelist Kwamkur Samuel made the plea on Thursday in Abuja in a statement.
He said the association is concerned about the ongoing national conversation on the absence of the President due to ill-health.
“We wish to call on all Nigerians to join hands in prayers for the quick and full recovery of Mr. President and his safe return to Nigeria instead of dwelling on the needless rumour mongering on the President’s health,” Samuel said.
He said that CAN appreciate the anxiety of Nigerians to hear Mr. President speak, but that President Buhari is human, hence subject to health challenges sometimes.
“We advise the Presidency to update Nigerians on how he is faring and the full progress of his recovery. We call on all Christians and indeed all God-fearing Nigerians to dedicate time of prayers for our President and the nation. We owe our leaders prayers and support at all times while shunning divisive opinions that only generate strive,” he said.
