President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Katsina commiserated with the Katsina Emirate Council and the family of late Chief Imam of the Juma’at Mosque, Liman Lawal, who passed away on Sunday.

President Buhari, accompanied by Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State, was received at the Emirate by His Royal Highness, Alhaji  Abdulmumini Kabir Usman.

The President told family members of the late Chief Imam to take solace in the fact the religious leader lived a fulfilled and God-fearing life, praying that God will grant the deceased rest and comfort his family.

In his remarks, the Emir of Katsina commended the president for his forthrightness, steadfastness and patriotism in providing good leadership for the country, assuring him that God will always protect him against enemies of progress.

Alhaji Usman said the myriad security challenges facing the country were the handiwork of detractors, who want to discredit the President, urging him to remain resolute and focused in finding lasting solutions to the problems faced by ordinary Nigerians.

“Most of the issues in security are deliberately created by detractors to distract you from the good work you are doing and I can assure you, by God’s grace, they will not succeed,’’ he said.

“As far as we are concerned,’’ he said, “you are doing a good job to clean up the country and restore it on the path of  honour and dignity.’’

President Buhari, who was in Daura-Katsina for the All Progressives Party’s Ward Congress, returned to Abuja after the visit.
