Tambuwal Urges Nigerians Not To Relent In Praying For Buhari

Tambuwal and Kukah earlier today in Sokoto
Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has urged Nigerians, especially
the Christian faithful, not to relent in their prayers for total healing for President
Muhammadu Buhari.


Mr Tambuwal spoke in Sokoto today Tuesday when the Forum of Directors
of Social Communication of the Catholic Church paid him a courtesy visit at the
Government House in Sokoto.
“The nation will remain grateful for the fervent prayers you
have embarked upon while the President was away receiving medical attention.
Along with our Muslim brothers, we all prayed and it is gratifying to note that
our prayers have been answered. We should not relent on that,” he said.
He urged the communication directors, who were led in
the visit by the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese of the Catholic Church, Bishop
Matthew Hassan Kukah, to deploy their knowledge and experiences to
promote religious harmony and peaceful coexistence in the country.
He said Sokoto has a history of religious tolerance, and has
been open to diverse ethnic and religious groups since the time of reformist
scholar, Usman Danfodio.
“We believe the whole country can learn from our rich
history of tolerance and moderation. I’m happy you have chosen Sokoto for your
meeting. From what you have seen yourselves, you can take the positive message
of peace to your dioceses and your homes,” the Governor added.
While wising the delegates a fruitful deliberation, Tambuwal
urged them to explore the many historical and tourism sites available in the state.
In their separate
remarks, both Kukah and President of the Diocesan/Religious Directors of
Communications, Father Pius Ukoh, said they were in Sokoto for
their bi-annual retreat, and commended the Sokoto government and the
Council for their commitment to peaceful coexistence in the state.
