The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku-Akpolokpolo Oba Ewuare II, has urged Nigerians to pray for the good health and safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Benin monarch also directed traditional rulers to pray for President Buhari, Vanguard reports.
According to him, Buhari needed the prayers of all traditional institutions to govern the country in good health.
Speaking on Tuesday, February 14, at Umegbe community in Oredo local government area of Edo state, the monarch said President Buhari has good intentions to change the current economic woes of the country for the benefit of all.
In attendance at the meeting were — Igie – Ohen, (priests and priestesses), Oba N’ Amen, Enigies Odionwere -Evbo and all other traditional rulers in the state.
Recall that Buhari initially embarked on a 10-day vacation, but wrote to the Senate to extend it for medical reasons. He did not specify the date he would return to the country thus fuelling speculation that he could be in a critical condition.
But photos of the president with a former Interim National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande and the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in London on Thursday, February 9, seems to have silenced speculators.
