“Today is a special day to pray for Nigeria. As believers, we are not perturbed over the current situation because we believe strongly in Almighty Allah and we know that in no distance time, Nigeria will overcome the predicaments.

“We believe strongly that with this prayer, Allah will guide our leaders aright and eliminate the pocket of challenges confronting us as a nation,’’ he said.

He enjoined citizens to desist from cursing their leaders.

“We should continue to pray for them and say positive things about our country,“ he said.
