More Prayers Needed For President Buhari, Says Governor Tambuwal

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.


Nigerians should continue to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari, Sokoto Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, said on Tuesday, days after Mr. Buhari returned from a 50-day medical leave in London.

Mr. Tambuwal made the call when the Forum of Directors of Social Communication of the Catholic Church paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Sokoto, his spokesman, Imam Imam, said in a statement.

“The nation will remain grateful for the fervent prayers you have embarked upon while the President was away receiving medical attention. Along with our Muslim brothers, we all prayed and it is gratifying to note that our prayers have been answered. We should not relent on that,” Mr. Tambuwal was quoted as saying.

Tambuwal urged the communication directors, who were led in the visit by the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese of the Catholic Church, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, urged them to deploy their knowledge and experiences to promote religious harmony and peaceful coexistence in the country.

He said Sokoto has a history of religious tolerance, and has been open to diverse ethnic and religious groups since the time of reformist scholar, Usman Danfodio.

“We believe the whole country can learn from our rich history of tolerance and moderation. I’m happy you have chosen Sokoto for your meeting. From what you have seen yourselves, you can take the positive message of peace to your dioceses and your homes,” the Governor added.

While wising the delegates a fruitful deliberation, Tambuwal urged them to explore the many historical and tourism sites available in the state.

In their separate remarks, both Kukah and President of the Diocesan/Religious Directors of Communications, Father Pius Ukoh, said they were in Sokoto for their bi-annual retreat, and commended the Sokoto government and the Sultanate Council for their commitment to peaceful coexistence in the state.
