An Islamic scholar, Malam Muhammad Nafi’u, on Monday condemned those celebrating the ill-health of President Muhammadu Buhari, calling them sinners. Nafi’u, who is the Cheif Imam of Nupe Road Central Mosque, while speaking in an interview, in Kaduna, said the president is human just like all of us, therefore has the right to seek medical attention.
The Imam said: “If Buhari is not feeling fine, it is not a sin for him to seek for medical attention, he is a human being like everyone of us. It is a sin to speculate and spread false rumours, and people should stop it, as every human can fall sick. Rather than wasting time on sinful propagation of falsehood, we should be praying for Buhari to have sound health. Nigerians should also unite in prayers for the president to quickly recover and return home hale and hearty.” He stated that President Buhari who has demonstrated nothing less than love and commitment to the people of Nigeria deserves prayers not otherwise. “Our president has to be healthy, because governance is a big task; we should be grateful to Allah for given us a president that has the country at heart,” Nafi’u added. President Buhari departed Nigeria on Sunday night for further medical follow up in London.
