Some Muslim clerics say they have commenced a 10-day prayer and fasting for the improvement of President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.
They made this known on Friday in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
President Buhari on Sunday extended his 10-day vacation earlier scheduled to end Sunday in order to complete and receive the results of a series of tests recommended by his doctors, according to his media aide, Femi Adesina.
And Mallam Uma Bolori, who spoke on behalf of the clerics, called on all Nigerians to pray for the president.
”We are going to fast, supplicate and recite Holy Quran 50 times for improved health condition of our President.
”Nigerians must rally round their leaders and pray for them, to enable them succeed in steering the affairs of this country.” He said.
He urged Nigerians to always wish for good health for the president and pray that God grants him wisdom, good health and the political will to fulfill his campaign promises to the people.
