Senator Shehu Sani, the lawmaker representing Kaduna-Central in the Senate, has berated the Imam of Aso Rock Mosque, Sheikh Abdulwaheed Sulaiman, for saying the insecurity currently being experienced in parts of northern Nigeria are a test from Allah.
Senator Sani lamented the failure of clerics to tell truth to power but instead concentrate attention on preaching to the poor in a fiery manner.
“Banditry and kidnappings are not test from God, but the sum of failure of the past and present leadership. It is the way of state clergies to reshape the gospel to comfort and exculpate power; they preach to the poor with flames and preach to the powerful with flowers”, Sani said.
Earlier during the Tuesday edition of the daily Tafsir at the State House mosque, Abuja, Sulaiman, who is the chief imam of the mosque, had said that insecurity in Nigeria was a test from God.
