There’s hope, CAN tells Nigerians
The Christian Association of Nigeria has said Nigerians, especially the Christian community, should remain steadfast in their faith, confidence and hope “because God is deeply concerned about Nigeria”.
This was contained in a goodwill message by CAN’S President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, on Tuesday.
The statement quoted Ayokunle as saying Nigeria had been in captivity due to terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of insecurity, adding that God would soon intervene.
he said, “Nigerians are groaning and it is as if our government is helpless but our God is not. God is stepping into the situation and we will soon rejoice and celebrate in Jesus name when God returns our captivity.
“The siege is over and we should rejoice in hope and in expectations of divine help and intervention. The year 2020 is our year of complete deliverance, freedom, liberty, peace, recovery, and restoration. Let no one consider suicide as an option.”
The CAN chief cautioned those embarking on illegal migration to Europe through the desert and the Mediterranean Sea to shelve the idea.
