The Emir of Daura, Umar Faruq Umar, has prayed for Buhari, assuring him that he will continue to triumph over all his enemies.
The Emir made the prayer at the Eid-el-Kabir prayers which took place at Kofar Arewa praying ground on Sunday.
President Muhammadu Buhari, along with his guest, the Guinean President Alpha Conde, had joined other Muslims in Daura, Katsina State, on Sunday morning to observe the Eid-el-Kabir prayers at Kofar Arewa praying ground.
President Buhari and his guest arrived the praying ground in a black Mercedez Limousine about 9.35 am.
The President was in Khaki colour flowing robe (Babanriga), brown cap and a pair of brown shoes.
The two Raqat prayers were immediately observed.
Chief Imam Sefiyanu Yusuf led the prayers and read the sermons, which revolved around the importance of the Sallah as a demonstration of Muslims’ loyalty and obeisance to almighty Allah.
The Emir of Daura, Umar Faruq Umar, in his brief comments, lauded President Buhari’s administration, assuring him of the support of people of the state.
The Emir said, “We are proud of you; we are proud of your administration and we shall continue to pray for you.
“You will continue to triumph over your enemies.”
Governor Aminu Masari, who also attended the prayer session, praised President Buhari for his strong attachment to the people of the state.
He urged him to continue in his efforts at re-positioning the country.
President Buhari and the Emir, later at the praying ground, performed the traditional slaughtering of the Sallah rams.
The Emir said a Durbar was to be held later in the day in Daura in honour of the visiting Guinean President.
Meanwhile, the Sallah celebration was generally peaceful in the state.
