Alhaji Farooq prayed that God grant Buhari good and sound health to continue with his leadership.

He commended President Buhari for restoring peace back to the North East region of the country which he said in the past has been crippled by activities of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents and displaced persons across the country.

Also upon visitation to the Emir of Katsina’s palace to pay homage, the Emir, Alhaji Abdulmumin Kabir Usman prayed for the quick recovery of President Buhari while noting that the country’s porous border is largely responsible for the Boko Haram insurgents.
