Governor of Adamawa state, Jibrilla Bindow has urged all religious leaders in the state to offer special prayers for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bindow made the call on Wednesday when the people of Shelleng Local Government Area visited him at the Government House, Yola.
The governor said that the health condition of the president was more worrisome to the people of the North East, due to his unrelenting efforts to end insurgency in the region.
He appealed to both Christian and Muslim clerics in the state to organise special prayers for speedy recovery of the president.
He said, “I urge all religious leaders to organise special prayers for our dear President Muhammadu Buhari for his speedy recovery.
“His ill health is our major issue of concern, especially the people of the North East, due to how he vigorously fought the Boko Haram insurgency to a standstill.
“His commitment, zeal and high sense of patriotism has brought peace to our region and today, we can sleep with all our eyes closed in the North east.
“I therefore enjoined both Muslims and Christians to hold special prayers for him to recover and continue with his good work.”
