Zamfara state governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, has urged Muslims to use the Ramadan period to pray for quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari currently receiving medical treatment in London.
Yari made the call at the 2017 Democracy Day celebration in Gusau on Monday and said that Muslims should also use the period to pray for leaders.
He said that Buhari’s administration had good mission of change in the country, adding that Nigerians should therefore, pray for him to come back and continue with his good leadership role.
The governor said that the state government under his leadership in the past six years, spent billions of naira on development projects for the good of the people.
“I am sure the people of Zamfara have seen the impact of these projects in our socio-economic activities, especially those at the rural communities, in the areas of healthcare, roads, education and agriculture,” he said.
Earlier, the Deputy Governor, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, had described Buhari as “tested and trusted leader”, who came to rescue Nigeria.
According to him, Buhari has good mission and vision for Nigerians. He is a leader we have never had, and therefore, we should unite and pray for him irrespective of our differences.
