The Presidency has described as touching and thoughtful, a message received over the weekend from the Christian Association of Nigeria expressing joy at the news of President MuhammaduBuhari’s recovery from illness.
In a statement to the press in Abuja, senior special assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari,GarbaShehu, confirmed that the President received the goodwill message from Rev Dr Samson SupoAyokunle, the CAN President.
“The CAN President referred to the news of President Buhari’s recovery from sickness as a ‘rejuvenation of hope’, and congratulated Nigerians on the joy of having their President back soon,” MalamShehu said.
The SSA to the president added that such messages of goodwill from respected religious bodies like CAN meant so much at a time when people with ill intentions were struggling to divide the country along religious lines. He also thanked the CAN for its continued prayers for the President’s health.
“The Presidency looks forward to further collaborations with CAN to ensure that Nigerians of all ethnic and religious groups benefit from the policies of the President Buhari administration which are aimed at improving the welfare of every single citizen of our great country,” Malam Shehu said.
