Buhari is presently on medical check-up in London.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the prayer session was organised by the state government as part of the activities to mark the second anniversary of Buhari.

It is also to mark the sixth anniversary of Gov. Abdul’aziz Yari’s administration in the state.

NAN further reports that the prayer session which took place at the Gusau Central Juma’at mosque, was led by the Chief Imam of the mosque, Malam Liman Dan’Alhaji.

Dan’Alhaji urged Muslims to always pray for their leaders, saying that Islam taught and encouraged prayers for leaders.

“It is only when we pray for leaders that they would be guided by Allah to lead us in a right direction.

“But if we continue abusing, insulting them, saying bad prayers for them, we will be involved in the consequences,” he admonished.

The Chairman of governor Yari’s sixth year anniversary committee, Alhaji Lawal Liman, said the prayers were organised in all Juma’at mosques across the 14 local government areas of the state.

In his remarks after the prayer session, the state Deputy Governor, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, commended the committee for organising the prayer sessions and described them as timely.
