The President of Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC), Rev. Samson Ayokunle has tasked political office holders not to sleep until the abducted Chibok girls are released.

At the 103rd yearly Convention of the church, with the theme: ‘Moving Forward: Working Out Our Salvation with Fear and Trembling’, NBC Ayokunle urged Nigerians to sustain the tempo of their prayers on behalf of the girls, but with a caveat that God could not be coerced into answering prayers “at the time of man, but at God’s time.”

The NBC President said: “There are many ways by which God answers prayers. It could be via instant response or by His own time like the importuned prayers in Luke 18:1. Man can’t force God into answering prayers. I want to, however, say that the prayers on the Chibok girls are not in vain. There is a part a man must play before God will play His own part .
