For those praying for President Muhammadu Buhari, there are good reports that his health has improved significantly.

A source in the Nigeria High Commission in London, United Kingdom, gave this assertion to Premium Times.

 “Oh yes; we thank God. He is doing very good; he is okay, but his doctors will determine (when he will return),” he said.

The official, who sees Mr Buhari regularly, asked not to be named because he had no permission to discuss the president’s condition with the media.

He said the president is largely stable and is able to regularly and promptly observe his five-time daily prayers.

When told that those calling for Mr. Buhari’s resignation believed he was too sick to ever govern again, the source said, “That’s the view of those arrogating God’s power to themselves and would surely regret it, Insha Allah.”

This assurance came on the same day women from all works of life converged on Abuja for a one-day prayer and fasting session for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The women, led by President of the National Council for Women Societies (NCWS), Mrs Gloria Shoda said the prayers had become necessary to ensure the good health of the president.

“We have been praying as individuals in our closet but this time, we have decided to hold this open prayer for our president.

“We want him to recover quickly and return to work. The council has decided to make this prayer a monthly routine to ensure that things work well in this country also.

“Nigeria belongs to all of us and it is our responsibility to always pray for our leaders, most especially our president, irrespective of our political affiliations,’’ she said

Shoda said that the prayer session was also held to ask God to restore the glory of Nigeria and move the country forward.

The founder of Gender Support for Women Emancipation and Empowerment Development, Anna Nosike, also told the News Agency of Nigeria the prayer session was to bring down the Hand of God upon Nigeria
