Tambuwal, Sultan, ex-minister seek support for Buhari on economy, Boko Haram war
Apparently in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s rallying message to mark his one-year in the saddle, more top Nigerians yesterday called on the people to support the Federal Government in its efforts at reviving the economy and war against Boko Haram insurgents.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State yesterday appealed to Nigerians to offer prayers for the President to succeed in building peace, progress and political stability in the country.
Tambuwal, who made the appeal in Sokoto while distributing inputs to farmers groups in the state, said that the prayers would guide the leadership to perform creditably.
Immediate past Minister of National Planning, Prof. Abubakar Suleiman, on Sunday gave kudos to President Mohammad Buhari for his fight against Boko Haram terrorists in the country.
The former minister noted that there is now peace in parts of the country that hitherto had recorded mass casualties and displacement due to attacks by the insurgents.
Also, the Sultan of Sokoto, Dr. Sa’ad Abubakar, has urged Nigerians, to support and rally round President Buhari in his task of building a virile nation.
The Sultan made the call at the 22nd Annual Ummah Convention 2016 organised by the National Islamic Centre (NIC), Zaria, Kaduna State, on Sunday.
He said the call became imperative in view of the economic upheavals bedevilling the country and the quest by the present administration to proffer lasting solution.
According to the top monarch both Muslims and Christians, young and old must come together for the country to record meaningful, steady and consistent growth and development.
