Nigerians on Friday night joined the rest of the world to usher in the new year with prayers and jubilation.

During a visit to some churches where crossover services were held, many worshippers were seen praying into 2022 and after the ‘Happy New Year’ declaration, it was jubilation everywhere.

After another pandemic-ridden year accompanied by rising cases of COVID, insecurity, and economic challenges among others, most Nigerians believe they have a reason to celebrate.

While worshippers vibe to melodious sounds of songs and beats, others took to the streets to shoot fireworks as a way of celebrating the beginning of another year.
