Sheikh Nuru Khalid, the Chief Imam of the Apo legislative quarters, Abuja has reacted over his alleged suspension, however vowed to continue to speak the truth.

Sheikh Khalid had in a sermon lambasted president Buhari’s government over its failure to tame the escalating insecurity and killings and economy woes in the country.

He criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for not visiting Kaduna to sympathize with the victims and their families.

‘’How times did he visited Kaduna for campaign seeking for votes but with the bomb attack on a train to Kaduna he cannot visit them, ‘’the Imam decried.

‘’It is not enough for the president to condemn the attack but for him to act.’’

In the sermon, the imam hinted at some measures that electorate should devise should the authorities fail to protect their lives.

He said, “Nigerian masses should resort to only one term which is – protect our lives, we will come out to vote; let us be killed, we will not come out to vote, since it’s only elections that you people know,” he added.

But in a statement, the chairman of the mosque committee, Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau sent to BBC Hausa Service, said the committee suspended the embattled imam over his sermon that it deemed ‘inciting public outrage’.

He said, “I am informing you that you have been suspended from leading prayers in the Apo Legislative Quarters Mosque from today being April 2nd, 2022 until further notice.

“The decision was taken out of the inciting Friday sermon you delivered on April 1st, 2022; where you advised people not to vote come 2023 general elections unless politicians respond to some critical questions.

But speaking on Sunday, the Sheik said he was unperturbed, adding that he learnt about his suspension in the media.

He vowed to continue speaking the truth, daring those who perceived his sermon as inciting to show evidence.

He added that “God is the most powerful. He gives (enthrones) and takes away power (dethrones) from whomever He wishes”.

“Oh God! The master of sovereignty, you give sovereignty to whom you please, and seize sovereignty from whom you please, you honour whom you please and you abase whom you please, all good is in your hands, indeed you have power over all things.”
