Plateau Crisis: Pray Against Killings In 2024 – CAN President

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Archbishop Daniel Okoh has urged Nigerians to pray against killings in the country especially the recent incident in Plateau State.

Okoh gave the advise in his New Year Message issued on Monday.

The CAN boss who expressed displeasure over the incident said Nigerians embrace our diversity and allow it to be the bedrock upon which we build a stronger, more harmonious nation.

Okoh said: “As we stand at the dawn of a new year, I want to first express my deepest gratitude to Almighty God for His unfailing protection and mercies that have seen us through the year 2023. It is by His grace that we have been preserved, overcoming the trials and tribulations of the past year. We have indeed witnessed His hand in our lives, and for this, we are profoundly thankful.

“We were shocked to find that, as the year drew to a close, the enemies of progress sought to cast a shadow over our joy with acts of extreme violence in some communities on the Plateau. These acts of aggression against innocent lives are a stark reminder of the fragility of peace in our beloved country. It is a recurrent nightmare that we have witnessed far too often.

“In light of these distressing events, our prayers intensify for the souls we have lost and for the bereaved families. We pray earnestly to the Almighty God that such senseless loss of life and wanton destruction of property will never plague our communities again. May He guide us towards pathways of peace and grant solace to all who have suffered.
