Fears mount over President Buhari’s health in home state Katsina

Fears mount over President Buhari's health in home state Katsina

There is no doubt that the state of health of President Muhammadu Buhari is fast generating growing concern and fear among people of his home state, Katsina.

Abdulrasheed Funtua, a lecturer in one of the universities in Katsina, urged prayers for the president.

He said: “Mr. Presidents state of health is destiny and sickness is not death. Take Senator Isiaka Adeleke, for instance, he was not sick but he died. So, it is destiny. And there is nothing we can do than to keep praying for President Buhari.”

A resident of Kankia, Ustaz Idris, said there is palpable fear over the state of health of the President because of succession issues given the immediate past experience following the death of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua which created room for Goodluck Jonathan to become the next president.

“Already we have a bitter experience, talking about the scenario which brought in President Jonathan. And the fear as a Nigerian is, do we know who Vice President Osinbajo is? Are we not going to have the experience we had with Jonathan where people who are rich were busy enriching themselves at the expense of the poor and others were losing their lives? “During Jonathan, instead of finding lasting solutions to the insecurities, some people were making money from the situation.

“We are only praying that President Buhari should complete his tenure and complete the good work he has started. For instance, fight against insurgency,” Idris said.
