As Nigerians count down to the 2019 Presidential and Gubernatorial elections, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared January 10 as a day of national prayers for the general elections to be peaceful, free, fair and credible.

According to a statement which was signed by the Acting General Secretary of CAN, Joseph Daramola on Saturday, the day was also fixed to pray for the freedom of Leah Sharibu and others still held captive by Boko Haram terrorists.

CAN asked churches across the nation to pray against violence, manipulation, intimidation of voters and other electoral crimes between 11am and 2pm on Thursday next week.
