Yoruba Imams, Alfas congratulate Tinubu, urge him to liberate Nigerians from poverty
The League of Imams and Alfas in Yorubaland, Edo and Delta states (THE RABITA) has congratulated the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his hard-earned victory at the polls, urging him to work towards liberating Nigerians from poverty.
The Imams, in a congratulatory message jointly signed by Sheikh Habeebullah Adam Abdullah Al-Ilori and Sheikh (Dr.) Ahmad Aladesawe, said Tinubu’s victory was a confirmation of the truism that only Allah ordains kings and presidents, saying: “No matter the plots and scheming, Allah decides to give power to whom He wills.
“We see your success at the polls as the triumph of light over darkness and a blessing from Allah (SWT) in spite of plots, threats, blackmail and outright attempts at demonisation of your Excellency’s personality.
Besides, it urged Tinubu and the vice president-elect, Kashim Shettima, to showcase the beauty of Islam in all their actions, saying: “We shall stand by you through thick, thins and bends as you move on to glory.”
