In a statement issued on Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam 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.
The president’s aide quoted him as saying 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 presidential aide quoted Buhari’s letter thus: “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.”
