A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara, Alhaji Bashir Ataka has described President Muhammadu Buhari as the kind of leader Nigeria never had before.
Ataka, while warning Nigerians to stop spreading bad news about the health of the president, said it was part of the responsibilities of every Nigerian to pray and support the President.
Speaking with newsmen in Gusau on Wednesday, Ataka said those spreading such rumours had bad wishes for the country and the President.
Ataka described as “very unfortunate the way some people are spreading speculations, rumours about the President’s health condition.
“It is unfair for us to be spreading bad wishes for our leaders, instead of us to support them with prayers.
“We have to pray for Buhari as the leader we never had in this country, we should keep all our differences aside whether religious, political or regional; we should unite and support our leader to implement good projects for us.
“We have to support President Buhari not only with prayers but all what we can to succeed in the task of moving the country forward.
“It is part of our responsibility as good Nigerians to bury all our differences and unite to support our leaders.
“We all know the economic and security challenges we face in this country before and we have seen the changes particularly the way the federal government is making efforts to improve the nations’ economic sector.
“We should avoid bad wishes to our leaders; it is against what is revealed in our Holy Scriptures,’’ he added.
Meanwhile, Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on Wednesday spoke with Muhammadu Buhari on phone.
Buhari in the latest phone conversation said he was feeling better.
