Spiritual Leader, His Eminence, Sheikh Yahya Ashaola (As-Samadaani), Chief Imam of Oriwu Central Mosque of Ikorodu has referred to Nigeria’s President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a special being chosen by Allah to lead the current generation.
In a sermon given to Muslim faithfuls on Wednesday, 29th of March 2023, marking the 71st birthday of Bola Tinubu, the chief Imam exhorted Nigerians to pray for the President-Elect, for Allah to bestow on him the ample disposition to oversee the nation.
The liturgy was delivered after a special prayer and Thanksgiving session were held in the mosque dedicating Tinubu’s birthday.
Sheikh Ashaola, in his words, “Tinubu is the epitome of Intellectual capacity, a human resource developer and an economic stimulant, equipped for this time to rescue the shattered dreams of Nigerians”.
Urging the Muslim communities to put him (Tinubu) in their devotions at all times, the chief Imam said he can see the special work of Allah in the life of the incoming president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Underscoring another reason for brethren to beseech for Tinubu, Sheikh Ashaola said winning the 2023 presidential election has hoisted Bola Tinubu into a stature that even some well-respected political figures didn’t attain.
He explained, “The Late Obafemi Awolowo was considered the best President we never had. He was the head of the Yorubas, but he never permeated the North and East”.
“Today, Asiwaju has accomplished that!”.
“He’s the most successful politician in Nigeria as we speak”.
“Asiwaju also suffered for the Democracy we enjoy today, he was tortured and humiliated, but his sense of focus and divine direction kept him moving to where he is now” Sheikh Ashaola added
Crediting Tinubu’s intellectual strength, Sheikh Ashaola asserted that the President-Elect is known to assemble the best brains to achieve sufficient results, narrating that he exemplified the same act during his first 6 months in office as Governor of Lagos State back in 1999.
Subsequently, lecturing attendees, Imam Ojifinni Abdul-Ganiu, the Mufasir of Ramadan 1444/23 in Ikorodu, illustrated that it takes an extraordinary leader to discard his birthday celebration to engage more in service to humanity.
Imam Ojifinni stated that the Yoruba population should emulate Bola Tinubu’s life ethics, and ensure to give his incoming administration the peace it deserves.
“No Yoruba group or body should be brainwashed or influenced to cause havoc on Asiwaju’s presidential tenure, because the truth is, his effective performance at Aso Rock will open more doors to Yoruba leaders in the future, given them opportunities to also become president”.
“We must be careful not to allow people to use us to generate chaos and anarchy towards Asiwaju’s tenure, it is the only way we can show him our profound support” Imam Ojifinni asserted
On the backdrop of his 71st birthday, President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu directed that special prayers and thanksgiving service be held on March 29, 2023, instead of his annual birthday colloquium.
The special prayers were also held in Lagos and other parts of the country, simultaneously.
