The Presidency has described as “touching and thoughtful,” a message received from the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, expressing joy at the news of President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery from illness.

In a statement in Abuja on Monday, Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, confirmed that the president received the goodwill message from CAN President, Samson Ayokunle.

“The CAN President referred to the news of President Buhari’s recovery from sickness as a ‘rejuvenation of hope’, and congratulated Nigerians on the joy of having their President back soon,” he said.

Mr. Shehu added that such messages of goodwill from respected religious bodies like CAN meant so much at a time when people with ill intentions were struggling to divide the country along religious lines.

He also thanked the CAN for its continued prayers for the president’s health.

“The presidency looks forward to further collaborations with CAN to ensure that Nigerians of all ethnic and religious groups benefit from the policies of the President Buhari administration which are aimed at improving the welfare of every single citizen of our great country,” he said.

    “The CAN President referred to the news of President Buhari’s recovery from sickness as a ‘rejuvenation of hope’” … Talk of the winds.

      He does, and the winds responded.

    Politicians who I like to call “rulers” not leaders; then police, lawyers and unfortunately judges are all tainted and compromised. And church “leaders” are increasingly sycaphantic. Tell me, where do Nigerians look for hope and inspiration, fairness and justice.

    I have continued to wonder why the average Nigerian seem unfazed by the actions of these political rulers and the “men of god” whose first and only guiding principle is self interest.
