Nigerians are hungry and angry, Islamic group tells Tinubu
Al-Habibiyyah Islamic Society on Sunday in Abuja urged the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to prioritise the war against hunger, poverty and inflation as soon as he gets to the seat.
National Chief Imam of Al-Habibiyyah Mosque, Imam Fuad Adeyemi, made the call at the 20th National Unity Ramadan Lecture organised by the society.
It had: “Ramadan Lessons: Inspiration for reform’’ as its theme.
Adeyemi emphasised the need for the president-elect to hit the ground running from the day he is sworn in.
“It is clearly seen by the blind and so audible by the deaf that there is poverty in the land; people are hungry and angry, inflation is so high and recently we started using naira to buy naira.
“He needs to work hard to reverse these unholy trends. Tinubu’s victory didn’t come to us as a surprise; he is known to be a talent hunter, a cerebral and compassionate leader.
“His tenacity and focus are enviable; his victory is a testament to his years of investment in people and relationships,” the cleric said.
