Suleiman, a Professor of Political Science at the University of Abuja, advised Buhari to bring his ministers closer to him, to be able to get direct information on issues affecting the country including the feelings and aspirations of Nigerians.

Suleiman suggested the inclusion of more economists into the administration, to fast track the country's economic recovery.

Meanwhile, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, has appealed to Nigerians to offer prayers for the President to succeed in building peace, progress and political stability in the country.

Tambuwal, who made the appeal in Sokoto while distributing inputs to farmers groups in the state, said that the prayers would guide the leadership to perform creditably.

He said that the inputs were procured at the cost of N159 million under the Fadama III programme to boost irrigation in the state.
