Former Vice President and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has urged Nigerians to desist from spreading rumours about the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari and spend time to pray for his safe return to continue to pilot the affairs of the country.
In a statement by his media office in Abuja, Atiku said: “Every human being is a mere mortal irrespective of how great or highly accomplished we are. We deserve the care and support of one another in trying times.
“ President Buhari needs all the prayers and goodwill he can get at this time, to enable him return from his medical vacation in the UK and continue with his God-ordained assignment of steering Nigeria to her next level of greatness.
“Each of us go through times when we are not feeling in top form. The last thing we need in those times is mockery or ill will.”
