Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) on Wednesday said it had declared a week of fasting and prayers for a successful campaign across the nation.
Mr Yinka Odumakin, spokesman to the CPC Presidential Candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, said in a statement that the prayers would precede the flag off of its presidential campaign.
â€œThe round of prayers, which started on Monday Feb. 14, will be rounded off with prayers in mosques on Friday and in churches on Sunday,â€ it said.
It noted that the highpoints of the prayers include thanking God for the mercies shown to Buhari and his associates and for the successful transformation of a political movement into a party.
â€œPrayers are also to be offered for Godâ€™s protection for all candidates running on its platform and supporters and for Nigeria in general,â€ it added.
The CPC said the campaign programme would be unfolded at the end of the prayer sessions.
