Wife of the president, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, says God has answered the prayers of Nigerians over her husband’s health.
Mrs Buhari also stated on her Facebook post yesterday that “The hyenas and the jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom.”
President Buhari has been in the United Kingdom since May 7 for a follow-up consultation with his doctors.
The president’s wife was responding to an earlier Facebook post by Senator Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna Central) insinuating that some people doubted that Buhari would return.
Sani had written: “Prayer for the absent Lion King has waned. Until he’s back, then they will fall over each other to be on the front row of the palace temple. Now, the hyenas and the jackals are scheming and talking to each other in whispers; still doubting whether the Lion King will be back or not.
“Now, the Lion king is asleep and no other dare to confirm if he will wake up or not. It is the wish of the hyenas that the Lion King never wakes or come back, so that they can be kings. It is the prayers of the weaker animals that the Lion King comes back to save the kingdom from the hyenas, the wolves and other predators.”
Mrs Buhari responded thus: “God has answered the prayers of the weaker animals. The hyenas and the jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom. We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals. Long live the weaker animals, long live Nigeria.”
