President Finally Breaks His Silence

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally broken his silence as he allegedly called the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje and used the opportunity to thank Nigerians for praying for him.

The President who has been receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment in London since January spoke to the governor during a prayer session held for his quick recovery at the government house in Kano.

“We are very grateful for all the efforts Nigerians are putting in praying for my quick and successful recovery. May Almighty Allah reward you abundantly; my sincere regards to all,” the President said.

Also present at the prayer session were Islamic scholars, prominent politicians and Imams.

Ganduje said: “Your Excellency, you are calling at the right time, when we have gathered here praying to the Almighty Allah for your quick recovery. All participants said they are extending their heartfelt greetings to Your Excellency. “Many of those at the session expressed surprise to hear President Buhari’s voice. As he spoke, the mood changed in the prayer hall. Many people burst into tears as others expressed relief.”
The governor told the President that, on Friday, there would be special prayer sessions in over 7,000 Friday Mosques. He said the call from the President was a sign of good things to come.

Ganduje later told the gathering: “This is the end of my speech. We are very happy Allah has showed us that He has answered our prayers.

“From the way we heard his voice, we are so happy to believe that he is recuperating quickly and with full happiness and good wishes for the country.”
