Nafi’u, who is the Cheif Imam of Nupe Road Central Mosque, Kaduna said in an interview in Kaduna that the President, like all mortals have a right to seek for medical attention.

“If Buhari is not feeling fine it is not a sin for him to seek for medical attention, he is a human being like everyone of us."

He noted that President Buhari had demonstrated love and commitment to the people of Nigeria and deserves nothing less than prayers.

“Rather than wasting time on sinful propagation of falsehood, we should be praying for Buhari to have sound health,” the Imam said.

He noted that President Buhari had demonstrated love and commitment to the people of Nigeria and deserves nothing less than prayers.

“Our president has to be healthy, because governance is a big task; we should be grateful to Allah for given us a president that has the country at heart,” Nafi’u added.
