He said, “Our prayer is what President Buhari needs from Nigerians rather rumours.
“President Buhari deserves payers from the people of North-East, for not allowing Borno to go on extinction when almost all the territories in the state were taken over by Boko Haram.
“We are going to fast, supplicate and recite Holy Qur’an 50 times for improved health condition of our President.
“Nigerians must rally round their leaders and pray for them, to enable them succeed in steering the affiars of this country.
