Renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Muyideen Bello on Friday, said President Muhamadu Buhari was already tired of the situation in the country.
Bello, who is the Chairman, Northern States’ Council Missioners of the Ansar Ud Deen Society of Nigeria made the claims while addressing journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, shortly after delivering a sermon at the one-year memorial Fidau prayer for the immediate past Governor of the State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.
Bello during his lecture insisted that Nigeria has entered a one-chance going by the current challenges facing the country, claiming that Buhari as a leader was already tired of the situation.
In his words, “The whole of Nigeria is in one chance. What is happening in Maiduguri? Do we end it? So the whole of Nigeria, we are in one chance.
“We are in one chance because Buhari as a leader is already tired of what is happening in this country.
“So, which type of statement did you see the president is making about insecurity in Nigeria?
“I don’t need to talk much about it, the only solution is to pray to Allah. Not one person, everybody is to pray to Allah. That is what can help us to overcome the problem.
“Because now, all of us are in danger. All of us, we are in danger. Because anything can happen anytime.”
The Islamic cleric stressed that the solution to the problems confronting Nigeria is for everyone to turn to God in prayer.
Senator Abiola Ajimobi had died at a Lagos hospital on 25th June 2020 at the age of 70.
Some notable personalities who were present at the event include Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan, his counterpart from Ondo, Lucky Ayedatiwa, former Governor of Oyo State, Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, his wife, Kemi.
