[NG]Kinsmen pray for Buhari in hometown

The Daura Emirate Council in Katsina State, home town of President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday  conducted a marathon prayer session for  Allah to continue to protect and grant him good health.

The  Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk, led the prayers at his palace in Daura, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

In attendance at the prayer session were thousands of Daura residents.

Buhari is  currently in London on medical vacation.

The emir said that Buhari needs prayers not only for his health, but also divine guidance to lead Nigeria to greatness.
“Mr President is our son and he deserves much more than this,” he said.

Farouk told the residents that there was no cause for alarm about the President’s health, pointing out that “going by available contacts we have on a daily basis, the President is in high spirits.”

The emir said leaders need constant prayers from their subjects, hence the decision by the emirate to organise the prayer session.

He observed that the nation is undergoing positive reforms under the Buhari leadership, as such “needs our encouragement, support and prayers for him to succeed and build a better Nigeria.”

Chief imams of major Juma’at mosques in Daura, Mai’adua, Zango, Sandamu and Baure local government areas under the emirate conducted the prayers which included the recitation of the complete Qur’an eleven times.

Last week,over 300 imams across Borno State held  similar prayers for the President.
