Buhari joins Muslim faithful to pray for son, Yusuf’s recovery


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday joined fellow Muslims to pray for the quick recovery of his son, Yusuf, who was involved in a bike accident on Tuesday in Abuja.

The prayer session formed part of the Jumat prayers held in a mosque at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Government officials who participated in the session alongside the President were the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Al-Makura; Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu; and the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru.

The prayer was led by the Chief Imam of Aso Rock Mosque, Sheik Abdulwahid Suleiman.

Others at the prayer session were presidential aides and villa staff, among others.

Suleiman urged the first family to “accept the tragedy in good faith.”

He prayed for God’s guidance and protection of the first family and all Nigerians.

The clergy man also prayed for peace and tranquillity in the country.

A similar prayer session was held on Thursday in the same mosque.

Yusuf is currently at an emergency ward at Cedacrest Hospital in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
