The Presidency has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari went on a spiritual pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.
Garba Shehu, Buhari’s spokesman, said his principal is on a spiritual journey to Saudi Arabia to thank Almighty Allah as he prepares to transfer over to Bola Tinubu, his successor.
Buhari was at the Holy Land, according to Shehu, to thank Allah for the success of his eight-year government.
Garba told reporters about the President’s visit, saying, “Buhari was in the Holy Land to thank Almighty Allah for the successful eight years in service of his country.”
As part of his participation in the Holy City, Buhari initially visited Madinah, where he viewed some important religious sites, including the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilisation.
The President stated at the Museum that “the spread of true knowledge of the religion of Islam is the most important task now facing global Muslims.”
