Samson Ayokunle, president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and Sa’ad Abubakar, sultan of Sokoto, have called for a three-day fasting and prayer to seek God’s intervention against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tagged ‘NINEVEH’, the spiritual exercise will take place from Friday to Sunday.

According to a statement by Joseph Daramola, general-secretary of CAN, the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) asked everyone to partake from their homes.

“The NIREC leadership appreciates the efforts of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 who have done all that is humanly possible to animate and create awareness on how to keep safe from infection of the coronavirus,” the statement read.

“In furtherance of this effort, NIREC calls for three days fasting and prayers (July 3 to 5,2020) for every Nigerian. The Muslims will begin on Friday, July 3, 2020 by praying in the Abuja National Mosque while we Christians will end the prayer on Sunday, July 5, 2020 in the National Christian Centre, Abuja at 3:00pm. Selected Christian leaders have been invited to participate in this all-important programme.

“These prayers will respect social distancing. NIREC has asked everybody to seek the face of God in fasting and prayers for God to put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and we must all take part in our different homes.

“We commit you and all yours under the shelter of the wings of our Almighty God, who is able to keep you from falling, and present you faultless before His seat of Glory with exceeding joy in Jesus’ name!”
