Former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, has said that President Buhari has failed Nigerians and needs to wake up at midnight and pray to Allah for forgiveness.
Lamido said this in an interview with BBC Hausa while reacting to the gruesome murder of 43 farmers by Boko Haram members in Borno state on Saturday, November 28.
Lamido added that President Buhari should drop his ”arrogance” and seek Allah’s forgiveness.
“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.
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”.
Speaking further, the former governor accused President Buhari of never listening to anyone.
”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, Nigerians prayed for him and they are still doing but he failed to address their challenges”
