Groups coming under the umbrella of Conference of Patriotic Nigerians Thursday, at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano organised special prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari and the sustenance of peace and unity in the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the groups comprising civil society organisations, religious groups, students among others, also prayed for victims of Nov. 28, 2014, Kano Central Mosque bomb blast, which killed over 200 people.
The event was led by the state Chairman, Juma’at Mosques Committee, Sheik Fadhlu Danalmajir.
The crowd later marched to the Government House, where they were received by Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje, who commended them for their prayers and best wishes to the nation.
He stressed that the people of the state were solidly behind President Buhari, adding that other Nigerians should support the administration to bring about the desired change to make Nigeria a better place for all.
The governor noted that the Buhari-led administration had in the last two and a half years addressed problems of security and corruption in the country.
Among those in attendance were All Progressives Congress Chairman in the state, Abdullahi Abbas and Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Abdurrahman Kawu-Sumaila.
