President of the association, Rev Samson Ayokunle, made the call during a service at the Trinity Baptist Church, Ajobo, Ibadan, Oyo State capital, on Sunday.
He said, “About what is happening in the country, I want you to pray very well this week. If it’s about the things we see in the spirit, it is not sure that elections will hold at all. We won’t want elections to hold like they didn’t hold; if that should happen, it would cause trouble or even lead to war.
“That is why we have asked you to pray this week. This is a week for prayers. Pray that bad people will not be involved in Nigeria’s affairs. About the elections, we will pray that they will not result in war or bring agony. People who think they are powerful and want to cause problems for us, God Himself will give them problems and bind them. God will take power from them.
“Please, pray very well this week so that the elections might be able to hold on February 23 as the INEC has said. The postponement, to us, is a national embarrassment.”
