A well-known Islamic scholar, Ahmad Gumi, has lamented on the level of insecurity and economic devastation in the country.
Gumi, in an interview, acknowledged that Nigerians are struggling and unable to feed themselves as prices continue to rise in the market.
Commenting on the Abuja-Kaduna train attack, a Sheikh Gumi prayed for the immediate release of those held by the criminals.
He also called on the people of Nigeria to remain united in the run-up to the 2023 general elections, in order to form a government that can alleviate the suffering of Nigerians under the current government.
“I can say most Nigerians are in one form or the other in serious economic distress; nevertheless, we should not forget those under the mercy of kidnappers and the downtrodden.
“We pray for their immediate release and hope Nigerians will unite to usher in a new government that will address these difficulties,” he added.
