Muslim community organizes prayer session for President Buhari
The recovery of the Nigerian president has generated a growing concern as days and weeks passes without having an assured date from Doctors on his return. The President’s wife, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari has not also been able to provide a substantial date to asking Nigerians as to when her husband will return.
Following here visit to him in London, all that Nigerians have been able to hear is her plea to all, seeking for prayers for the president who left the country about a month now. This growing concern perhaps informs the special prayer organised by members of the Muslim community in Ekiti State during the weekend.
Addressing faithfuls at the prayer service, Alhaji Mohammad Jamiu Kewulere, President General, League of Imams and Alfas in South West reiterated the need for Nigerians to support the president with prayers for his anticipated return and recovery in due time, emphasizing that only the Almighty can make things happen.
“We need to pray for almighty Allah to restore the health of our President. He needs a lot of energy to lead Nigeria and this can only be provided by God. I believe that there is nothing God can’t do. He should make our president strong to be able to lead this nation to the promise land,” Alhaji Kewulere admonished and prayed.
In the same vain, in recognition of the contributions of Late Col Bawa (who passed away on the 26th of May) to the development of Ekiti State, the congregation prayed for his his smooth transition to greater glory. History holds that late Col Bawa was the military administrator in charge of Ekiti state between 1996 when the state was created till 1998 before he was replaced by Navy Capt Atanda Yusuf.
Alhaji Kewulere described the late state man as a selfless and courageous man who served the state with honesty and the fear of the Supreme Being.
