The Oluwo of Iwo, Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has called on Nigerians to stop abusing the President but rather pray for his quick recovery so he can continue governing the nation in sound health.
The royal father said this While addressing worshipers at a special prayer session organised for President Muhammadu Buhari by Muslims, Christians and traditionalists at his palace in the town.
“As I have prayed for Buhari today, new life has come for him,” he prayed. “He must spend eight years in power despite all obstacles from opposition.”
He also said he was willing to bear any sickness that is ailing the president, saying that those who love the country must love the leaders as well.
“It is painful that those who launched that campaign of ‘Resume or Resign’ are not patriotic as they claimed,” he said.

“They politicised the campaign which shouldn’t be. Buhari is my son and I won’t be happy when people are wishing him dead.
“If any civil servant or police officer falls sick, will you advise them to resign? Those who are clamouring for Buhari’s resignation are not sane.
“Nigerians don’t love those that love them but they are passionate about those that hate them.
“All those who are wishing him dead and those who are clamouring for his resignation shall fall sick.”
The president of Christian Association of Nigeria, Iwo chapter, Caleb Ayoola, led the Christian prayer; the Chief Imam of Iwo, Abdulfatai Olododo, led the Muslim prayers and Ojetunde Ajibowu, led traditionalists in prayers.
