Former Vice President and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has joined other prominent Nigerians and politicians to urge Nigerians to pray for the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The health state of the President who is in the UK has become a controversial one between Nigerians and the presidency, which has led to politicians and prominent Nigerians calling for prayers for the president.
Atiku, in a statement issued by his Media Office in Abuja on the health of the President, noted that each and every one of us is a mere mortal, irrespective of how great or highly accomplished we are.
“We deserve the care and support of one another in trying times,” he says.
He stated that the President needs all the prayers and goodwill that he can get at this time, to enable him return from his medical vacation in the UK and continue with his God-ordained assignment of steering Nigeria to her next level of greatness.
“Each of us goes through times when we are not feeling in top form. The last thing we need in those times is not mockery or ill will,” he said.
Atiku urged Nigerians to quit the rumour mongering and to instead channel that energy in praying for God to strengthen President Buhari and his family through this time.
