Saraki Hires 1500 Islamic Clerics, Alfas To Pray Him Out Of Corruption Trial
Sept 21, 2015 – Corruption Trial: Saraki Hires 1500 Islamic Clerics, Alfas To Pray For Him In Ilorin Kwara State
Troubled Senate President Bukola Saraki has employed the services of Islamic clerics in Kwara state to help him find spiritual solution to his political problem.
The head of Maja Elders Forum , the convener of the prayer Kayode Yusuf said:
“We in Kwara are powerless. The only thing we can do is to support him (Saraki) with prayers. We have no money, soldiers, police or any other security apparatus. We are just ordinary citizens of Kwara and Nigeria. But we in Kwara, especially in Ilorin, believe in the power of prayers.
“All of us in Ilorin, including the Chief Imam of Ilorin, are involved in the prayers. Saraki is our leader. He must not come down. Within the short time that he was elevated as the Senate President, we know what we have benefited from him.
“I have mobilised more than 500 Imans and over 1,000 others are praying in different areas. They have been praying and fasting. Even the women are praying for him. Saraki is our benefactor. Even the uneducated do not want anything to happen to Bukola Saraki. They are not sleeping but are also praying. The prayers will last till Saraki’s ordeal is over.”
