President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday made a phone call to governor of Kano state, Umar Ganduje informing him that his condition has improved.
Buhari, who extended his appreciation to Nigerians for their goodwill and prayers, spoke over the phone for about three minutes in vernacular with Ganduje, while a prayer session was going on at Africa House, Government House, Kano on Wednesday.
When Ganduje inquired: “How are you feeling now Your Excellency? Buhari responded, “Alhamdulillah (all praise be to Allah)”.
During the prayer session, which was broadcast live by local radio stations in Kano, Ganduje told Buhari that Islamic scholars and Imams in Kano were praying for his speedy recovery.
On hearing this, Buhari remarked “Maa shaa Allah”, meaning, “God willed it”, an Arabic phrase used to show appreciation for a person or happening and is evoked upon hearing good news.
Ganduje, said it was obvious that from the voice of Buhari, his health had greatly improved.
“We prayed for Buhari to win and he won. It is now mandatory on us to rally round his government and pray for his well-being”, Ganduje remarked.
