President Muhammadu Buhari has taken time from his ‘short rest’ to write to a king in Jordan, King Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein.
According to a statement released by presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, the President disclosed this in a letter he wrote to the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, King Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein, following the resolution of a recent rift in the royal family.
The statement was titled, ”President Buhari writes Jordan’s King Abdullah, conveys good wishes and solidarity.”
Garba quoted President Buhari as saying that he felt much disturbed when he heard reports of the problem in the royal family but felt reassured when he learnt that everything had been resolved amicably.
The letter in part reads
“While here in London taking a short rest, I was profoundly disturbed to read from international news agencies of attempts to destabilise the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
Your exemplary leadership since ascending the throne has attracted worldwide admiration.
Relations between Nigeria and Jordan have been excellent and I thank you for the part you have played in this relationship.
‘Your Majesty, I am much heartened that matters have now been resolved and I pray that the Hashemite Kingdom continues to not only remain peaceful, but also a major beacon of hope for the region under Your Majesty’s wise guidance.”
The President left Nigeria on March 31 for his routine medical checkup. He is expected in Nigeria next week.
