At a time when Nigerians are grappling with the high cost of living due to rising food prices, the renowned Islamic cleric from Kano State, Sheikh Mujajjadina Sani Kano, who also serves as the President of the National Association of African Astronomers, has called on the government to swiftly implement measures to alleviate the suffering of the populace. He emphasized that failure to address this issue promptly may incur the wrath of God.
Sheikh Muhajjadina made these remarks during an interview with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, stressing that the current situation in the country is alarming and beyond imagination. He stated, “The situation has become extremely concerning.”
The cleric noted that every aspect of life is being adversely affected by the economic upheaval, prompting both Muslim and Christian scholars to unite in urging the government to provide relief for the people.
As the Chairman of the Muhajjadina Humanitarian Foundation, a renowned organization dedicated to supporting the masses, Sheikh Muhajjadina highlighted the dire circumstances faced by many individuals, including men, women, and orphans, who are in desperate need of assistance. He remarked, “Nearly everyone you encounter on the streets requires aid.”
Sheikh Muhajjadina emphasized that reinstating the fuel subsidy is crucial for addressing the insensitive cost of living, as its removal has exacerbated economic challenges, leading to the continuous depreciation of the naira.
Warning of potential divine repercussions, Sheikh Muhajjadina cautioned that if the government fails to take decisive action to alleviate the plight of the masses, they may face divine consequences. He stated, “God has the power to remove leaders and replace them with those who will serve the people.”
Furthermore, Sheikh Muhajjadina urged governments at all levels to seek guidance from religious leaders in managing their affairs, particularly in the distribution of palliatives. He stressed the importance of ensuring a fair and equitable distribution process, devoid of political biases, as hunger knows no political affiliation.”
