Federal Government adopts The national athem as official prayer

With an intention to engender the spirit of cohesion and unity in supplication to God in the country along religious lines, The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has adopted the second stanza of the National Anthem as the official prayer at all public functions.

It goes:

'Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause Guide our leaders right Help our youth the truth to know In love and honesty to grow And living just and true Great lofty heights attain To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.

I bet most of you can not even remember the verse...oya start cramming!
