Leave politics, sentiments, pray for Buhari –CAN President

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Dr. Samson Ayokunle, on Wednesday, said Nigerians should stop playing politics with the health of President Muhammadu Buhari, while urging Nigerians to leave sentiments apart, but pray for the ailing president.
Ayokunle who made the remark, in Lokoja, Kogi State. “ Let us continue to pray for him, we don’t play with the life of a human being, and nobody wants to fall sick, so don’t let us continue to make politics out of sickness; let us continue to pray for him,” the CAN President said. NAN reports that Ayokunle who visited the Kogi chapter of CAN, also cautioned those calling for the resignation of Buhari to be guided by the provisions of the 1999 Constitution.
“The position of CAN is that, we should follow the constitution, we have the constitution to guide us, so whatever the constitution says let us follow it, we drew it ourselves so let us not break it,” he added.
The CAN president also spoke on the ongoing strike by university lecturers, urging them to dialogue with the Federal Government to quickly resolve the dispute.
“ I think this issue has been on ground for too long, let there be a parley between ASUU and government.
“ We are playing with the future of the younger generation, so let us show them love, don’t let us allow our children to grow up hating us, hating the nation.
“ Strike today strike tomorrow; I beg both parties to exercise patience, understanding and maturity. “We know that the economy is going upside down, we believe that as we are praying for those managing the economy they will come out strong and be able to proffer solutions.”
Earlier, the state Chairman of CAN, Bishop John Ibenu said that the association had been working harmoniously with other religious groups to ensure peace in the state.
He also spoke on security challenge facing the state and appreciated the collaboration between the state government and security agencies to protect lives and property of residents.
