President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Archbishop Daniel Okoh, has urged Nigerians to pray for President Bola Tinubu, governors and other government officials in the country amid hunger and economic hardships.

The CAN president also called for the transformation of institutions to better serve Nigerians.

The archbishop made this call during the Church service of the Organization of African Instituted Churches (OAIC) held on Monday in Abuja, marking its 45th anniversary.

The theme of the service was ‘Behold I Will Do a New Thing.’

Archbishop Okoh, who also serves as the International Chairman of the OAIC, emphasized the importance of individual responsibility in effecting change, rather than relying solely on divine intervention.

He exhorted the faithful, urging them to continue praying for their leaders while actively fighting against corruption and injustice..

Archbishop Okoh said: “Whenever we find ourselves in certain positions, let us continue to pray and ask God for help. This way, the devil won’t see an opportunity to perpetuate corruption, injustice, immorality, and division among us.

“Instead, let us fight against these vices and work towards transforming government institutions to serve the people and restore our joy.

“Therefore, let us persist in praying for those whom God has chosen as leaders, that they may have the desire to know themselves and not be deceived or discouraged in carrying out their divine assignment to do what is right.

“These changes will come. We need to be patient with our leaders, who mean well for our country. Not everybody in governance is for the people, but I believe that many in governance genuinely ask God to bring about the desired change in our nations. Let us pray for them and may God protect them from the manipulation of power and the forces of darkness.

“We pray that God will grant them the courage to do what is right, always, no matter who opposes them. Let us continue to trust in God, for He has made promises and He will not fail. Africa shall rise again. Africa shall be great,” he added
