Nigerians have been urged to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari rather than heap blames on the country’s number one citizen.
This call was made by Governor Aminu
Tambuwal of Sokoto state on Saturday, January 21, during an event
organised to honour Aliyu Wamakko, the immediate past governor of the
state, Daily Post reports.
According to the former Speaker of the
House of Representatives, President Buhari has done a lot to reduce the
prowess of Boko Haram terrorists in the country, and this is just one of
the many things he is doing to make Nigeria a better place for all.
He said: “The
president has succeeded in tackling the problem of insurgency in the
North East while other security challenges are receiving the necessary
“The once dreadful Sambisa forest has now been cleared of insurgents and the happy story goes on.
“President Buhari is also doing his best
to doggedly fight corruption, diversify the economy and reduce poverty
”The president, therefore, needs the
support and fervent prayers of all Nigerians, irrespective of creed,
religion or ethnicity.”
Meanwhile, reports that President Buhari
has passed away in far away London has been denied by his media aide,
Garba Shehu, who replied in a very angry manner to the reports about his
principal’s health status.
The disturbing report had first been
broken by an alleged fake Metro (UK) site that “quoted” the Nigerian
mission in the country as confirming the president’s death.
But in his reaction, Garba Shehu, the Buhari’s spokesperson, said: “He
is alive and well! President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be
holidaying in the UK and be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time
