The Forum of Chief Imams of all Juma’at mosques in the 25 Local Government Areas of Niger state converged at Minna central mosque on Saturday for special prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that prayers were also offered for the development and progress of the nation at the session.
Sheik Ibrahim Fari, Chairman of the forum, told NAN that the prayers were aimed at supporting the prayers of all Nigerians asking God to restore the president’s good health.
“The entire nation needs him to accomplish his mission of repositioning the country towards ending corruption in our lives.
“Corruption has been the major factor responsible for our collective setback.
“This gathering is very important to ask Allah to strengthen the current administration in it’s efforts at ending the senseless killings of innocent Nigerians especially in the Northeast and North central.
“Nigerians, irrespective of tribe, religious and political differences, should come together and pray for our leaders.
“Our president is sick, everything in us as a nation is sick. All that is expected of us is to include him in our daily prayers,” he said.
