Nigerians have been urged to go into a “prayer frenzy” to avoid a total collapse of law and order under President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime.
In his message to the country, the Chief Missioner of Nasru-Lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT), Abdul-Azeez Onike, described the country’s situation as a plane experiencing turbulence and appears doomed to crash.
“If you find yourself inside an aircraft that is facing challenges of turbulent weather mid-air, you have no choice of disembarking from the flight or assisting the pilot in the cockpit. The option left for you is to go into prayer frenzy.
“In the spirit of the season and the fact that we are just getting out of the spiritual overhauling and service clinic of Ramadan, we should remember that our leaders have expectations of us and some rights on us,” said Mr Onike.
According to him, the “prayer frenzy” became necessary “in view of the myriad of problems besetting Nigeria at this moment.”
“At this moment in time, banditry, kidnapping for ransom, violent agitation for self-determination by some sections of the country, cultism, terrorism, gangsterism and many more vices, have been the order of the day,” he added.
However, the NASFAT leader rallying support for Mr Buhari stated, “Allah hath chosen him above you, and hath gifted him abundantly with knowledge and bodily prowess: Allah Granteth His authority to whom He pleaseth. Allah careth for all, and He knoweth all things.
“The best of your rulers are those whom you love and who love you, who invoke Allah’s blessing upon you, and you invoke His blessings upon them. The worst of your rulers are those whom you hate and who hate you and whom you curse and who curse you.”
“These include participation in the process to select the leaders; participation in the process to make a decision; advice and warn the leader; maintaining the harmony of institutions.”
