He added that every right-thinking Nigerian should pray and wish the president to come back and continue with the administration’s anti-corruption crusade and war against insurgency.
The President is currently spending his longest vacation, since his inauguration in 2015, in London, where Doctors are presently attending to his health.
Participants at the special prayer all prayed for the quick recovery of President Buhari and for peace in the state and the country.
