Nigerians are suffering under your govt, Muslim council tells Tinubu

Abuja—Muslim organisations in the country, under the aegis of the Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria (SCSN) on Tuesday told President Bola Ahmed Tinubu that Nigerians have been suffering in the past months of his administration.

The President of the Council, Sheikh Abdur Rasheed Hadiyatullah, stated this at the SCSN’s National Conference in Abuja, with the theme: “Matters Arising from the 2023 Election and Associated Socio-Economic Challenges.”

Hadiyatullah expressed concerns about the plight of Nigerians, especially the masses and lamented over the drastic increase in the price of various items in the country.

He said, ”The suffering of Nigerians has escalated since President Tinubu assumed office.

“What used to cost 200 naira is now being sold at 2,000 naira. Nigeria’s current state is marked by cash scarcity, unemployment, and economic challenges.”

However, the SCSN president urged Nigerians to repent and turn to God for guidance.

In his address, a former Governor of Zamfara State, Senator Ahmad Yerima, speaking on the conference’s purpose, addressed issues such as the review of the 2023 elections and the role of Islamic scholars in society.

Vanguard reports that Yerima emphasized the dangers posed by individuals falsely claiming to be Islamic scholars on social media, urging Nigerians to be cautious.

He highlighted the conference’s aim to address these challenges and draw attention to the perils of following unqualified individuals who misrepresent Islam on digital platforms.
