Governor Tambuwal urges Nigerians to pray for President Buhari
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 attention. 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 and unemployment. ”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.
