The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), under the leadership of its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, expresses its gratitude to Almighty Allah on the safe return of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency President Muhammdu Buhari from his vacation and medical leave. The Council also commends the passion displayed by Nigerians in their prayers throughout the period of the President's medical leave and on his safe arrival to Nigeria. The Council sees that as a real display of utmost patriotism and high sense of humaneness.
We also commend His Excellency the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on the high sense of leadership responsibility and wisdom he used in piloting the affairs of the country as the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the absence of the President.
We pray unto Allah to bestow upon the President, sound health, wisdom, strength and leadership prowess and astuteness to be able to drive the course of this country to achieve meaningful development and socio-economic prosperity.
The Council also wishes to use this medium to call on all Nigerians to continue to be prayerful, law abiding and promote the spirit of peaceful co-existence among one another. It is believed that, with peace and unity, we would surely attain our desired growth and development.
Once again, Alhamdulillah!
