As President Muhammadu Buhari marked his 100 days in office, the Tijaniyah Muslim Sect under the leadership of Sheikh Dahir Usman Bauchi has called for more patience from Nigerians as the president continues in the driving seat to fulfil his campaign promises to the country.
In a special prayer organised by the group to commemorate the President’s one hundred days in office, Muslim faithful who gathered at the National Mosque in Abuja yesterday expressed optimism on the capability of the All Progressives Congress ( APC)-led administration to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
Former speaker of the Federal House Of Representatives, Hon. Gali Umar Na’aaba, who was a special guest of honour at the gathering, said there was need for concerted efforts from members of the public to see the Buhari- led administration succeeds. “We are here to offer thanks to Allah and to also pray for the success of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“It is good for me to use this opportunity to advise Nigerians for all of us to continue to pray for God’s guidance and continued peace and stability in Nigeria. This is our country and we must all work together to ensure that we achieve peace, “he said
Also speaking at the gathering, Sheikh Ahmad Tijanni, a grand son of Sheikh Ibrahim Nias, the founder of the Tijaniyah sect, said the occasion was aimed at praying for the success of Buhari led administration and for the continued peace of the nation. “We are here to pray for peaceful coexistence of this nation and for our president to succeed in his drive to halt corrupt practices and bring Nigeria back to his glorious days”.
