Ex-Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II has asked Nigerians to pray for the election of honest and competent leaders in 2023 so that the country can handle its security and other concerns.
Yesterday, at a meeting of the Jam’iyyatu Ansariddeen Attijaniyya, Nigeria’s National Executive Committee (NEC), he delivered the above allegation.
Sanusi, a former governor of the CBN and the current President-General of the organisation, called for national unity in order to advance Nigeria.
In order to make a significant impact on Nigeria’s future, the Dharikka must strengthen their cohesiveness and foster better connections with other Muslims and Nigerians.
As Muslims, we have no other tools at our disposal save prayer, therefore we must pray earnestly for peace and stability in Nigeria, asking Allah to provide us leaders who are capable, honest, and committed to looking out for the best interests of the people.
Sanusi pleaded with his audience, “I call on all of you to continue to pray to Allah to grant us decent leaders and protect us against the intrigues of our enemies.”
Mallam Muhammad Alqasim Yahaya, the group’s national secretary, asked Nigerians to focus on the qualifications of the candidates running for office in 2023 rather than the criticisms levelled at the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He pleaded with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end its strike and rethink its position.
