Buhari’s Only Sister Reveals What He Discusses With Him Everyday

The only surviving elder sister
of President Muhammad
Buhari, Hajiya Rakiya,has
appealed to Nigerians to
continue to pray for the well-
being of the president, instead of spreading rumours about his
health.

In an interview with NAN in
Daura, Katsina state, the 84-
year-old woman said her
brother needs the prayers of
every Nigerian for him to
succeed in the task of addressing the problems facing
the nation.

She said he as a human being,
he is bound to fall ill or even
die "at any time his Creator
wishes''. Rakiya said since January when
he departed to London, she has
been speaking with the
president every day, and that
he is in high spirit.

"I just returned from the lesser
Hajj, and even while in Saudi
Arabia, I was communicating
with him every day," Rakiya
popularly called Amadodo, told
NAN.

She said in Saudi Arabia, she
communicated with him "every
ten hours".

"We were 28 from our mother
late Hajiya Zulaihatu who died
in 1992, but Buhari was her last
born," she said. A cross section of the people in
the ancient city, who spoke
with NAN, expressed
displeasure over rumours about
the president's health.

Abdulman Daura, north-west
organising secretary of the All
Progressives Congress (APC),
described the false reports as
"baseless and unfounded". Daura said Buhari is in good
health and is only conducting a
routine medical checkup in the
United Kingdom. He advised the president's
opponent to be always
constructive and avoid
campaign of hate and calumny. Similarly, Aminu Na-Dari, an
ally of the president, said he
has also been in constant touch
with Buhari since his departure
and their conversation did not
in anyway indicate that he is having any health challenge. A group of
students from the
School of Health Technology,
Daura, described the rumour as
unfortunate and asked the
National Association of
Nigerian Students to issue a statement condemning the
rumour. Aminu Mohammed,
spokesperson of the students,
called on Nigerians to always
think and act positive, saying
Buhari has started the reform
of correcting the ills of the nation, and corruption had
started fighting back.

He urged Nigerians to continue
to pray for the nation and "safe
return of Mr president".
