Reacting to the recent killings by bandit in some Northern part of Nigeria, former Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido said President Buhari has failed Nigerians and he needs to cry, repent to Allah for Nigeria to live in peace.
He said this while speaking to BBC Hausa service, the Ex-governor said President Buhari should drop his arrogance and seek the forgiveness of Allah.
He further claimed that the President Buhari might have committed sin that are affecting the country.
“There is no way a government can go successfully without sabotage but you need to be strong enough to overcome such challenges. If really, he cannot withstand this, he has to resign, but we can’t be accepting sabotage as a reason.
“He has failed, if not that he failed, how will you allow some people to slaughter 43 people? How will you allow bandits to raid villages and set them on fire and rape their women? Something is wrong somewhere,” he said.
When asked about the future of the country he said:
“Allah is merciful to his servants, we hope our prayers will be answered, but Buhari has to go first. He should ask himself what offences he has committed.
He needs to wake up at midnight, drop his arrogance and pray. He should ask for Allah’s forgiveness for the offences he has committed.
“He is arrogant and always speaking with pride. Many people have said it and we have seen it. In the last four years, if you said something like this, you will be cursed but now the truth has come. The problem is that he doesn’t listen to what people are saying, but everyone has spoken out. People are tired, the Ulamas, the masses and the traditional leaders… have spoken out.”
“When Buhari was sick, Nigerian prayed for him and they are still doing but he failed to address their challenges,” he added.
Although, both the presidency and the APC party have yet to react to Sule Lamido’s comments.
