Katsina - Hajiya Rakiya Adamu, the only surviving sister of President Muhammadu Buhari, has appealed to Nigerians to pray for the President, instead of spreading rumours about his health.
She made the appeal in an interview in Daura, Katsina State, on Wednesday.
The 84-year-old said the President needed the prayers of every Nigerian for him to succeed in the task of addressing the problems facing the nation.
She said that President Buhari being a mortal was bound to fall ill or even die “at any time his creator wishes.”
According to her, she speaks with the president daily since his departure to London on annual leave and he is in high spirit.
She added that “I just returned from the lesser Hajj and even while in Saudi Arabia, I was communicating with him daily.’’
The President’s sister, popularly called Amadodo, told NAN that while in Saudi Arabia, she communicated with Buhari every 10 hours.
“We were 28 from our mother, late Hajiya Zulaihatu, who died in 1992, but Buhari was her last born,” she said.
