Guinea Declares Day of Prayers for Buhari

Guinean President, Alpha Condé, asked all Muslims in the country to hold a 24-hour prayer for President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday. Condé gave the order while addressing the country’s Council of Ministers in a meeting on Thursday.

Reports indicate that he expressed concern for Buhari’s health and afterwards declared that Friday be devoted to prayers for Buhari’s quick recovery. According to a local news platform, Condé revealed that Buhari was expected to visit Nigeria in March, but was unable to do so because of his health. As a result, he asked that prayers be held in all mosques in the country in what he described as a day of prayers for Buhari.

Recall that Buhari had since May 7, 2017, two months after returning from a 49-day London medical trip, returned to the country again for medical treatment. His long absence from work had intensified calls for his health status to be made public, while several Nigerians also held prayers for his recovery. Some of the special prayer sessions were held at various Eid prayer grounds in Nasarawa, Kano, Kaduna, Katsina and Kwara states.
