He however said that, ‘despite the support, there is need to seek divine intervention for the Almighty to bring an end to the challenges.’

Buhari also commended the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, for taking a spiritual initiative towards making Nigeria peaceful.

I am very happy with this initiative. Indeed Ganduje is doing well in securing Kano and is giving his quota to achieving peace in the country at large.

‘No doubt, Nigeria is facing security challenges and we are doing our best to support the security personnel. That does not mean we should not seek divine intervention. This prayer session is part of the interventions and I commend the state governor for this,’ said Buhari.

In his remarks, Ganduje thanked Buhari for his efforts to ensure Kano remains peaceful by deploying security agents to secure the state.

The governor noted that Nigeria is indeed facing security challenges and there is a need to seek divine intervention and to pray for the present to overcome the challenges.

He stated that the state government is ready to make the prayer session an annual event where the state would invite world islamic scholars to grace the event every year.
