A total of 500 Islamic scholars from 14 districts of Zamfara State recently prayed for the quick recovery of ailing Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari. They also prayed for the well-being of the entire country.

This was disclosed by the Zamfara State Commissioner for Rural and Community Development, Alhaji Lawan Liman who claimed that the scholars recited the Holy Quran 100 times from Sunday night to Monday morning.

“If the President, as the leader of Nigeria, is not well, then it becomes the concern of all Nigerians to know that his recovery is highly important to us as a people and as a nation,” Alhaji Liman said.

“We have organized different prayer sessions throughout the state and we believe as Hafeez (reciters of the Quran), the prayers will be of immense benefit to our state, its leaders and people and the nation, especially the President, who is now on medical treatment in London,” he added.

President Muhammadu Buhari left Nigeria for London early this month to seek further medical attention less than two months after he returned from a medical leave
