The Presidency has been told to stop denying that President Muhammadu Buhari is ill and come out with the truth about his health status.
The Christian Association of Nigerian on Thursday, February 9, urged the Presidency to reveal the true state of President Muhammadu Buhari’s health condition. CAN further added that it is deeply concerned about the absence of Buhari in the country due to his health condition.
CAN urged Nigerians to pray hard for the President’s full recovery as it is obvious that he is sick. In a statement signed by the director of legal and public affairs, Kwamkur Samuel, CAN said with the help of Nigerians and their prayers, the President will be well.
He said: “President Muhammadu Buhari is human, hence subject to health challenges sometimes. CAN appreciates the anxiety of Nigerians to hear Mr. President speak, but sues for understanding as we await that. It is very clear that our leader is passing through health challenges.”
Kwamkur further added: “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.”
CAN called on all Nigerians to give their full support to acting president Yemi Osinbajo to lift Nigeria out of this trying period.
He said: “We acknowledge that government is a continuum, hence, we call on Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to be bold in handling critical state matters and not to be distracted by those who do not wish Nigeria well. God bless Nigeria!”
