President Muhammadu Buhari, has urged Muslim clerics and Islamic religious leaders in the country to preach against the evils of corruption in their mosques.
Buhari, represented by his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, spoke yesterday at the 55th anniversary and national conference of the League of Imams and Alfas in Yorubaland, Edo and Delta states, held in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The event was also used to officially turban the former Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Sarafa Tunji Ishola, as the Baba Adinni of Yorubaland, Edo and Delta states.
“Corruption is one of the major problems facing our country. Always preach against corruption in your mosques. Corruption does not pay, impress it on your congregation that anyone who engages in corruption will not enter Al-Janah.
“You should also continue to pray for the unity and survival of Nigeria. This is because prayer is key, your prayers actually worked for me as I recovered from illness,” Buhari said.
