Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has called on Nigerians to use their sense of humanity to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari, Daily Trust reports.
Tambuwal also advised Nigerians to cooperate with the president, saying such disposition would be for their collective interest.
NAIJ.com gathered that he made the call when the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP), Northern zone paid him a courtesy visit in Sokoto.
In a statement issued by the chairman, Northern chapter of CNPP, Alhaji Umar Faruq Ibrahim, the Sokoto governor appealed to Nigerians to resist what he called “manipulation through fake, speculative news, misinformation and disinformation.”
His words: “We must co-exist peacefully and be our brothers and sisters’ keepers. This is critical because crisis prone areas affect investors’ confidence.
“The ripple consequence of this is stunted development; hence we need to support this government so that the agenda of accelerated and sustained socio-economic development will be entrenched.”
Ibrahim, in his remark, commended Tambuwal for his non-partisanship in governance by carrying opposition political parties along.
Meanwhile, a socio-political organisation, Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF) has lambasted governors from northern Nigeria.
They accused the governors of abandoning President Buhari in his moment of trial, alleging that the governors were pursuing their political ambitions against the interest of the president.
