President Goodluck Jonathan has asked Nigerians to pray for him and other officials of his outgoing government to be able to live peaceful and decent lives after leaving office.

He also urged citizens of the country to also pray for the success of the incoming administration of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

Jonathan made the comments on Sunday, May 24, 2015, during the Presidential Thanksgiving and Inauguration Service at the the National Christian Centre, Abuja.

“I call on you to pray for us who are leaving, members of my family and my administration as we leave. But you should even pray more for the incoming government because we are leaving as private people to manage our private businesses; they are coming in to manage the whole country,” Jonathan said.

“So they require more prayers because I can make mistakes that will affect me and very few people, but if they make mistake it will affect the whole nation. So I call on all Christians and the religious bodies to pray for the incoming government to succeed,” he added.

Jonathan will hand over to Buhari on Friday, May 29.
