The prayer session was held during the official handover of the party’s affairs by the Board of Trustees to the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee, in Abuja.

Punch reports that PDP leaders who converged on the National Secretariat of the party to witness the ceremony used the occasion to pray for Buhari and the nation.

Ekweremadu noted that at times like these, Nigerians irrespective of religious or party affiliation should come together to pray for the nation and its leaders.

Soon afterwards, Ekweremadu led other party members to render prayers for the quick recovery of the President, the protection of the first family, the country's leaders and Nigeria as a whole.
