Mujidat Folashade Tinubu Ojo, a daughter of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has called well meaning Nigerians not to leave his father to do job of governing the country alone but to fully support and pray for him to succeed in leading the country to the promise land.
Tinubu-Ojo made the plea on Saturday, 25 March, 2023, in Abuja at the Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADSN) 28th Annual Ramadan Lecture and Special Prayer for the Nation, themed: ‘Ramadan: Islam and Good Governance: the Role of Muslims’, held at the ADSN Central Mosque, Maitama, Abuja.
According to her, though the elections were held and her father declared the President-elect, it is not over as this marks the beginning of work for Tinubu and all Nigerians.
“I called on Nigerians to pray and support our President-elect to make him succeed in making Nigeria the best for all. He cannot do it alone and Nigerians must support him, even after the elections,” she said.
Speaking on the theme of the lecture, the Chairman, ADSN, Northern States Council of Missioners, Sheikh Muhydeen Ajani Bello, cautioned against frivolity and wastefulness and sought help for the needy to engender societal and national development and wellbeing.
“Those at the helm of affairs must help the needy and those also not at the leadership positions must also help the needy to engender societal and national development,” Bello said.
The Islamic cleric noted that Prophet Muhammad had said that “We should help the needy even if the person asking for help was riding on a horse and you are walking.”
