The Presidency on Monday described as touching and thoughtful, a message received over the weekend from the Christian Association of Nigeria expressing joy at the news of President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery from illness.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.
Shehu confirmed that the President received the goodwill message from the CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle.
“The CAN President referred to the news of President Buhari’s recovery from sickness as a ‘rejuvenation of hope’ and congratulated Nigerians on the joy of having their President back soon,” Shehu said.
The presidential aide added that such messages of goodwill from respected religious bodies such as CAN meant so much at a time when people with ill intentions were struggling to divide the country along religious lines.
He also thanked CAN for its continued prayers for the President’s health.
“The Presidency looks forward to further collaborations with CAN to ensure that Nigerians of all ethnic and religious groups benefit from the policies of the President Buhari administration which are aimed at improving the welfare of every single citizen of our great country,” Shehu added.
