Cler­ics cau­tion politi­cians on Buhari

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Bashir Li­man, Jos

The Sha­reefs Coun­cil of Nige­ria (SCN) has called on politi­cians to stop politi­cis­ing the health sta­tus of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari who is cur­rently on med­i­cal vo­ca­tion in London.

The coun­cil made the call in Jos yes­ter­day through its Na­tional Chair­man, Al­haji Sharif Abba Jari, dur­ing a spe­cial prayer for Pres­i­dent Buhari and the coun­try.

The spe­cial prayer ses­sion was held at the Jos Cen­tral Mosque.

Al­haji Jari, rep­re­sented who by was Sharif Mun­taka, said it was in­hu­mane, cal­lous and in­sen­si­tive to de­rive plea­sure in politi­cis­ing some­one’s health.

Speak­ing earlier, Sarkin Shar­i­fai, Plateau State chap­ter, Sharif Muhammad Isma’il, noted that those politi­cis­ing Buhari’s ill health were ig­no­rant of hu­man na­ture, as ev­ery hu­man be­ing could fall ill with­out their knowl­edge.

The group, there­fore, called on Nige­ri­ans to con­tinue pray­ing for lead­ers to suc­ceed rather than pray­ing for their down­fall and urged those who did not have vot­ers card to im­me­di­ately reg­is­ter.
