If Buhari Is Hale and Hearty, Why should we Pray for Him? - Alex Ekwueme

Following the conflicting reports of President Muhammadu Buhari's health status, the Former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme has asked the wife of the president, Aisha, why Nigerians should pray for his husband's health if he is hale and hearty as claimed by the minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
Ekwueme asked the question in an interactive session with newsmen, shortly after the child dedication ceremony of one of his political godsons, held at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Calabar, Cross River State yesterday.
  When asked about his say on President Muhammadu Buhari's rumuored death, the former vice president said; “We have conflicting reports about the president’s health. The Minister of Information says he is hale and hearty, but his wife says we should pray for him.

“So if he is hale and hearty, I don’t know why she said we should pray for him. Whatever it is, we ask God to look after him. We want Nigeria to be at peace and to make progress and see how we can get out of our present difficulties.

“We really need prayers. We are in great difficulty. People are suffering. There is hunger in the land and it is not very encouraging. So we need God’s intervention to help us get out of it.”
  Speaking further, Ekwueme urged Ndigbo to gun for Igbo Presidency. He called on them to start where he stopped.

According to him: “I was Vice President until December 1983. Going by the old NPN order, I would have contested for the number one position in 1987, but the military intervened in 1983 and the civilian regime was cut short.

“I tried again in 1998 and (Olusegun) Obasanjo was released from prison and he came and won, supported by his colleagues in the military. I tried again in 2003 and the same thing happened. I, therefore, pray that the other people (Igbo) can take it up from there and make progress.”
