2023: 2,500 Muslim clerics pray for Tinubu in Kano


About 2,500 muslim clerics held a special prayer session for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in Kano State to emerge as the next president in 2023.

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been rumored to be an active participant in the forthcoming presidential election, although the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is yet to declare his intention to run for the highest political office in the country.

However, on Saturday, January 1, 2022, the Managing Director, Federal Housing Authority, Abdullmumini Jibrin Kofa requested a group of clerics to pray over Tinubu’s perceived presidential ambition ahead of the 2023 election.

The prayer session took place at Kofa in Bebeji Local Government area of the state.

The clerics, led by the Chief Imam of Kafin-Maiyaki recited verses from the Holy Qur’an.

At the end of the session, Jibrin said the prayer was “organised for the success of the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the forthcoming general elections as well as for peace and stability in the country.”

“I can confirm to you that Tinubu will contest the 2023 elections. The aspect of the decision is done; it’s a done deal.

“Arrangements to publicly declare will soon be known. I’m talking to you officially that he (Tinubu) will contest the presidential seat.

“We need somebody who can carry along everybody and I believe that Tinubu is the best option for Nigeria. He is not a religious fanatic and has massive networks across all the boundaries in the country.

“Asiwaju has worked extensively for the APC and never shifted ground. He is competent to be the president of this country.

“Nigerians always go for quality and I believe that issue is purely on the quality of the person.

Jibrin further said Tinubu has an edge over others, saying he does not see a dark horse coming in 2023.
