“I am grateful for the prayers and words of encouragement,’’ President Buhari said when he received Tijjaniyya Shura Council at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, according to a statement sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington DC by his spokesman Garba Shehu. 

“Nigeria’s unity is strong and must be sustained. It is instructive to note that Nigeria preceded all of us in age, and we must do our best to keep the country together.’’

Opposition has been rising against Mr Buhari in recent months, with his former running mate and radical prophetic-apostolic televangelist, Tunde Barake, describing him as a failure, especially in the areas of security, the economy and corruption.

In his remarks, leader of the Tijjaniyya, Sheikh Ibrahim Shiekh Maihula, said, “our desire is to live in a country that is peaceful and economically vibrant, and we will keep praying for you and members of your administration.’’
