The governor, at the prayer, said the president will soon return to the country to continue the good work of redirecting the course of the country.
The prayer which was held during the juma’at prayer observed at the Government House Mosque, Lokoja was attended by a former governor of Kano state, Senator Kabiru Gaya.
The governor said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is the man the world see when they look at Nigeria. He is Africa’s number one anti-corruption crusader whose integrity has helped rebound the nation’s global respectability.
“We are gathered here today to pray for the full recovery of Mr. President for him to return to the country and continue his good work of refixing Nigeria. May Allah grant him good health and our nation, greatness”.
Governor Bello called on Nigerians to intensify prayers for the recuperating president and also the acting president who has shown that the president made a good choice in the first place.
According to him, Nigeria has been regaining its rightful place in the comity of nation since the assumption of office of the president, noting that what the president needed was the prayers and support of everyone in the country.
Bello also lauded the acting president for upholding the ideals of President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying the party remained the only hope of the people.
The Chief Imam of Government House Mosque, Mallam Musa Bashir, offered prayers for the quick recovery of the president and the peace of the country.
