MARATHON PRAYERS (24/7 Prayer Chain) Monday 27th May - Sunday 2nd June 2024

Monday 27th May - Sunday 2nd June 2024


In furtherance of its efforts at providing solutions to the challenges facing Nigeria, the National Prayer Altar, in addition to its daily prayers for Nigeria, organized a conference to provide practical solutions to the problems of the country.

At the end of the Prayer Conference, the participants agreed as follows:

1. The 1999 Constitution (as amended) is a major obstacle to the peace, progress, and prosperity of Nigeria.

2. The Conference was unanimous that the 1999 Constitution (as amended) fails every test of a sovereign document for a federal system of government and should be decommissioned without further delay.

3. The Conference disagreed with the amendment exercise currently being undertaken by the National Assembly and insists that a fraudulent and illegitimate document cannot be amended; it must be discarded and replaced.

4. The Conference also stated unequivocally that a constitution can only be negotiated, not legislated into existence the way the 1979 Constitution was done via Military Decree 104 and Military Decree 24 for the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

5. Participants called on the ethnic nationalities to fulfil their responsibility and take steps to give Nigeria new constitutional arrangements.

6. The Conference acknowledged that the 1963 Republican Constitution still stands as the only authentic constitution of Nigeria in existence, having been negotiated at several conferences in Lagos and in London, before it was finally approved in July of 1963 at the Constitutional Conference in Lagos.

7. The Conference also acknowledged that the 1963 Constitution was only suspended by Gen. Ironsi’s Decree 1 of 1966; not abrogated.

8. The Conference affirmed that it was an error for the Military to have introduced the 1979 and 1999 Constitutions while the 1963 Constitution was still in place.

9. The Conference appreciated the efforts of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) in the past twenty-five years to resolve the constitutional dispute in Nigeria occasioned by the illegitimate 1999 Constitution (as amended).

10. The Conference acknowledged the five-fold proposition of NINAS as a veritable roadmap for the consideration of the ethnic nationalities to resolve the constitutional impasse in Nigeria.

11. The Conference agreed that new constitutional arrangements can be introduced in 2024 while a transition can be put in place for the government, till 2027.

12. The Conference lamented the apathy of intellectuals and religious leaders in the country to issues that threaten the corporate existence of Nigeria notwithstanding the genocide that has been unleashed on many ethnic nationalities.

13. The Conference affirmed that the ethnic nationalities do not require the permission of the government to meet and produce new constitutional arrangements for the country.

14. It was equally affirmed that the role of the National Assembly is to make laws and not to produce a Constitution. The responsibility of producing a constitution rests on the indigenous ethnic nationalities.

15. The Conference concluded by calling on all Nigerians to arise and demand new constitutional arrangements for the country, to replace the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which was imposed on Nigeria by the Military.


1. Gal. 5: 1
Pray and reject every instrument of bondage imposed upon Nigeria. It is for liberty that Christ has made up free. Reject before the Almighty God the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which was introduced to place Nigerians under bondage.

2. Isaiah 10: 27
Pray that the anointing of the Almighty God shall destroy the yoke of bondage placed upon Nigeria through the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

3. Ps. 2: 7 – 9
Demand of Heaven that the 1999 Constitution (as amended) be decommissioned in 2024.

4. Matt. 16: 19
Take authority over the forces of darkness sustaining the 1999 Constitution (as amended) to further the program of the kingdom of darkness. Break the hold of Satan and his forces over Nigeria.

5. Ps. 9: 15 - 20
Pray that all the foreign nations that have ganged up against Nigeria shall fall into their pits of bondage and destruction.

6. Isaiah 51: 9 – 10
Pray for righteous indignation and a stirring in Nigeria against every instrument and structure of oppression and bondage.

7. Rom. 4: 16 – 17
Call forth a new constitution for Nigeria, which will promote righteousness, justice, equality, and fairness in the country.
