350 mosques offer prayers for Buhari

Thousands of Muslim faithful in Borno State on Friday offered special prayers for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari, in compliance with the state government’s directive.

A statement issued in Maiduguri by Malam Isa Gusau, Special Adviser to Governor  Kashim Shettima on Communication and Strategy, said the prayers were led by Chief Imams of  various  mosques shortly after the mandatory Friday prayers.

“Chief Imams in about 350 Jumma’at Mosques in Maiduguri, Jere, Biu and other parts of the state, on Friday, led thousands of worshipers to offer special prayers for the speedy and full recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari following request by Governor Kashim Shettima,” the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted the governor’s aide as saying in the statement.

“The prayers were offered in appreciation of President Buhari’s commitment to the fight against the Boko Haram insurgents, which resulted in the liberation of many communities and relative peace now being enjoyed by residents across the state.”

He said similar prayers were expected to hold in churches on Sunday.
