Hajiya Rakiya, the only surviving elder sister of President Muhammad Buhari, has appealed to Nigerians to continue to pray for the well being of the President, instead of spreading rumours about his health.

She said President Buhari being a mortal is bound to fall ill or even die “at any time his Creator wishes’’.She said she speaks with the president everyday since his departure to London on his annual leave and he is in high spirit.
“I just returned from the lesser Hajj and even while in Saudi Arabia I was communicating with him everyday,” Rakiya popularly called Amadodo told NAN. She said while in Saudi Arabia, she communicated with him every ten hours”
“We were 28 from our mother late Hajiya Zulaihatu who died in 1992,but Buhari was her last born” she said.
