Buhari’s Sins Affecting Nigeria – Sule Lamido
Former Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari may have committed sins that are affecting Nigeria, urging the president to turn to God in repentance so that the country will have peace and progress.
Lamido, who spoke to BBC Hausa service, advised the president to learn how to be humble, drop his arrogance and seeks Allah’s forgiveness.
“He is arrogant and always speaking with pride. Many people have said it and we have seen it. In the last four years if you said something like this you will be cursed but now the truth has come.
“The problem is that he doesn’t listen to what people are saying, but everyone has spoken out. People are tired, the Ulamas, the masses and the traditional leaders… have spoken out.”
“When Buhari was sick Nigerian prayed for him and they are still doing but he failed to address their challenges,” he added.
He also said “Allah is merciful to his servants, we hope our prayers will be answered, but Buhari has to go first. He should ask himself what offenses has he committed. He needs to wake up at midnight, drop his arrogance and pray. He should ask for Allah’s forgiveness for the offenses he has committed.”
The former governor was obviously unsettled by the recent killing of farmers by Boko Haram terrorists as well as other cases of insecurity in parts of the Northern Nigeria.
He also added his voice to the recent calls by prominent Nigerians for the president to resign from office.
He said “There is no way a government can go successfully without sabotage but you need to be strong enough to overcome such challenges. If really he cannot withstand this he has to resign, but we can’t be accepting sabotage as a reason.
“He has failed totally, if not that he failed how will you allow some people to slaughter 43 people? How will you allow bandits to raid villages and set them on fire and rape their women? Definitely, something is wrong somewhere,” he said.
