The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) says about 65,000 of its members in Katsina state, have begun seven-day fasting and prayers for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Nelson Chukwu, chairman of CAN in the state, who disclosed this to journalists on Monday, said the prayers would be offered at Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries (MFM) at Kofar-Kaura, Katsina and continue in six other churches.

Chukwu listed the other churches where the prayers would hold as Church of God Mission, Calvary Baptist, ECWA, St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church, and C&S, Dutsin-ma road, all in Katsina.

He said the prayers would be concluded next Sunday at St. John’s Anglican Church, Katsina.

Chukwu said the decision was in recognition of the “good works” the president started for the country.

“We are praying for our president’s quick recovery because of the good works he had begun for the country,” he said.

Muslims faithful in the state and Daura emirate council also offered prayers for the president’s quick recovery.

At least 50,000 youth in Buhari’s hometown of Daura in Duara local government area of the state held a rally in solidarity for the president’s administration last Saturday.
