Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state has called on Nigerians to pray for the recovery of Yusuf, President Muhammadu Buhari’s injured son. Yusuf has been on hospital admission since December 26, after sustaining a bike accident. The President’s son suffered injuries to his head and limb.
Speaking at the 19th edition of the Annual National Conference of the Jama’atu Ta’awunil Muslimeen (Society of Nigeria) on Wednesday in Iwo, the governor noted that Buhari’s comfort is the comfort of all. Aregbesola described prayer as the only instrument that could rescue Nigeria from some of its predicaments.
He thus called on religious leaders to intensify prayers for President Buhari, his sick son as well as for the socioeconomic prosperity of the country. “I am happy that every religion emphasises this, and it is something important we can do to support the present administration by praying and fasting for our leaders,” the governor noted.
“As we all know the condition of the President’s son, I urge Nigerians regardless of our socio-economic, political and ethnic.”
