President Muhammadu Buhari has written a letter to the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein, expressing solidarity with the kingdom following a recent rift in the royal family.
Garba Shehu, presidential spokesperson, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
Shehu conveyed Buhari’s delight at the resolution of the rift, which made international headlines.
The statement was titled, ‘President Buhari writes Jordan’s King Abdullah, conveys good wishes and solidarity.’
He quoted the President 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.
“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,” the statement read.
“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.”
Buhari left Nigeria on March 31 for his routine medical check-up in the United Kingdom.
He is expected back in Nigeria next week.
