Supporters and loyalists of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader and presidential hopeful, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu have sought spiritual intervention towards the realisation of his ambition in 2023.
The supporters under the aegis of the Indomitable Tinubu Support Organisation (ITSO) during a special Tafsir (Islamic lecture) in honour of Tinubu prayed Almighty God to make his 2023 ambition a reality.
Chief Imams from all the divisions in Lagos were invited for the special prayer led by a prominent cleric and Chief Missioner of Jamahliy Society, Sheikh Abdullahi Akinbode.
Also, Chief Imam of Badagry Division, Imam Abdulkadir, Chief Imam, Ansar-Ud-Deen Itire, Imam Abdulhameed Adewole, Chief Imam of Epe Division, Sabrullah Abiola also did special prayers for Tinubu.
Tinubu’s daughter and Iyaloja General of Lagos, Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, led market women to the prayer.
Director-General of the ITSO, Hon. Abdulbaki Ladi Balogun, in his welcome remark, said they are convinced that the prayers during the holy month of Ramadan and a period of lent for the Christians would go a long way in actualising Tinubu’s ambition.
He said ahead of the presidential primaries of the party, there was need to call on God Almighty to fortify Tinubu and intervene in his presidential ambition.
He said, “We believe strongly in the efficacy of prayers to solve Nigeria’s problems. This is why we are handing over Asiwaju to the Almighty Allah, to guide him, protect him and ultimately lead him to be the next President after President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We are convinced our leader is a special being, a good leader who has made hundreds of leaders, who is after the good of the country and the progress of the Nigerian Nation.
“He has laid a solid foundation for the development of Lagos State. We want to take advantage of the Holy month of Ramadan to pray for the country and above all pray for the emergence of Asiwaju as the next President of the country.”
Chairman of the occasion and Senator representing Lagos East, Senator Mukhtar Tokunbo Abiru, represented by Hon. Abdullateef Rotimi Abiru said it was significant to put God first in the quest for a Tinubu presidency.
He said Tinubu has been a selfless leader in his quest for a better and more prosperous Nigeria.
According to him, since 2007 when he left office as Governor of Lagos State, he had occupied himself with watching out for his political Godsons.
He described Tinubu as the most able and capable President who could take Nigeria out of the woods.
“At this point in time when we are very challenged as a nation, we have no choice than to support our leader who is able, capable, who has sacrificed a lot for this country,” he said.
Grand Mufty of Ilorin, Sheikh Sulyman Farouk Onikijipa, in his sermon said security, economy and education are important pillars of any nation. He said Lagos has progressed because of how the successive governments had tackled security, making the state one of the most secured in Nigeria.
