At the St Thomas’s Anglican Church Isinkan, Akure, the vicar in charge, Venerable Thompson Akinboro harped on the need for people to walk with God and allow him direct their paths in the new year for a remarkable turnaround.

At St David’s Anglican Church ijomu Akure, the presiding priest, Venerable Ope Kujero urged Nigerians to be prayerful and move closer to God so as to overcome any travail that may come their way this year.

The cross over service was also held at Prayer and divine covenant minstry ilekun, Oda Road Akure, where Pastor Remi Adesunmoye advised Christians to seek first the kingdom of God, work hard and seek guidance in the new year.

The clerics implored Nigerians not to relent in praying for their leaders saying God had many blessings for the country in 2024.

In separate interviews with Radio Nigeria, Two Residents, Mr Olorunfemi Akinaanu and Mrs Bisi Ogunsola who were elated about the new year prayed that it would be their best year ever.

The streets of Akure became a beehive of activities after the cross over service as some residents especially youths organised parties on major roads to celebrate the new year.
