About Nigeria

  • Leader:Muhammadu Buhari
  • Government:Federal republic
  • Population:182.3 million (80.5 million Christians)
  • Main Religion:Islam/Christianity
  • Persecution Level:Severe
  • Source of Persecution:Islamic extremism

On 29 May 2015 Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as president. In his inauguration speech he promised to bring “increased prosperity” to the country, and also vowed to tackle corruption and the insurgency headed by Boko Haram which he described as “a mindless, godless group, who are as far away from Islam as one can think.” Despite Buhari’s intention to fight Boko Haram, which has been responsible for much of the violence against Christians in recent years, the continuing violence against Christians in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria remains an enormous source of concern.

Prayer Points for Nigeria

  • Pray for President Buhari to come to know Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord.
  • Pray for Boko Haram militants to experience genuine conviction of the Holy Spirit.
  • Pray for Christians who have lost homes, friends and family members to persecution.
