President Muhammadu Buhari’s sister, Hajiya Rakiya Adamu, on Wednesday appealed to Nigerians to pray for the President. The 84-year-old said the President needed the prayers of every Nigerian for him to succeed in the task of addressing the problems facing the nation.
She said that President Buhari being a mortal was bound to fall ill or even die “at any time his creator wishes.” Rakiya revealed that she speaks with the President daily since his departure to London on annual leave and that he is in high spirits. “I just returned from the lesser Hajj and even while in Saudi Arabia, I was communicating with him daily”, she said.
The president’s sister, popularly called Amadodo, said that while in Saudi Arabia, she communicated with Buhari every 10 hours.
Meanwhile, the Northwest Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Abdulrahman Daura, has described the rumoured death and state of health of the president as baseless and unfounded.
Daura said “Buhari is in good health and is only conducting routine medical check-up in the United Kingdom. “it is only God that gives health and takes life. People should stop the rumours”.
