Chief Imam of Apo Legislative Quarters Juma’at Mosque in the Federal Capital Territory, Sheikh Muhammad Nuru Khalid has been suspended by the Mosque’s committee for criticising the APC government over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria.
Before his suspension, the Jos Plateau state born cleric, popularly known by enthusiasts as digital Imam, had a meeting with the Presidential aspirant of the Accord Party, Professor Christopher Imumolen.
Some virtues connect the two leaders, which are their capacity for critical outbursts against the massive failure of the President Buhari- led administration to address insecurity, killings, collapse of infrastructure, economic misfortune, etc.
The suspension happened few hours after their crucial parley.
Sheikh Khalid was the Founder of Islamic Research and Da’awah Foundation, IRDF, and a leader of FCT Imam’s Delegation, 2014.
Professor Christopher Irene Imumolen remains Nigeria’s 2023 presidential hopeful on the platform of the Accord Party.
He is an academic of repute, oil and gas professional, philanthropist and an empowerment maestro who has touched the lives of over 500,000 Nigerians with supports over the decades. He has provided a solid scholarship based academic pedestal for the teeming population of Nigerian youths.
As the Vice Chancellor of Global Wealth University, Togo, he is the only African listed in the World Book of Greatness, UK.
Professor Imumolen maintains that Nigerians are one prosperous people in the absence of divisive politics and glutinous political leaders.
He also believes in a restructuring of the Nigerian state through love, people based policies and citizens oriented leadership capable of ensuring collective prosperity, peace and unity.
Speaking about this sad development, Imumolen told Timeswatch that Sheikh Khalid’s suspension following his condemnation of the incessant killings in the land is an obvious sign that the powers that be want Nigerians to be mute while evil roars freely.
He however disclosed that he emphatically urged the cleric to stay strong as numerous attacks will be launched against him, especially as they operate on the aegis of Govt, assuring him that the truth will always prevail over falsehood and propaganda.
