One after the other, the clerics took time to pray for the country, her leaders and Africa at large.

They also prayed specifically against the spirit of xenophobia in South Africa, which has claimed the lives of many Nigerians.

The national president of NIFROP, Bishop Sunday Garuba, who spoke during the event, described the 40 days fasting and prayers as a huge success.

He said: "We have successfully come to the end of the 40 days’ prayer and fasting programme designed by the National Interfaith and Religious Organisations to pray and fast for Nigeria for God to unite Nigerians in our quest for national unity.

Garuba expressed optimism that speedy answers would be gotten from the prayers tabled before God.
