Katsina state governor, Aminu Bello Masari has said that there is no need for unnecessary noise over President Muhammadu Buhari's continuous stay in the UK.
Masari, according to Daily Post, made this statement during prayers session for President Buhari in front of Katsina Emir’s palace attended by thousands of residents shortly after the funeral of the mother of Katsina monarch, Hajiya Aminatu Kabir Usman, in the palace on Sunday, February 26.
Recall that President Buhari is currently in the UK on a medical leave after extending his ten-day leave indefinitely.
Masari said: “The hues and cries about when he (Buhari) is coming back is unnecessary.
“What he (Buhari) did was based on the dictates of his conscience, religion and rule of law as dictated by the constitution of this country. There is no doubt that what he has done for this country is something that was never done before; it can only be equaled by the Nigerian civil war in which he was an active participant.
“I think for us as Nigerians, especially for the people in this part of the country, we should pray not only here, we should pray in our mosques, gatherings, funerals and everywhere.”
