Popular Islamic cleric, Ahmad Abubakar Gumi has decried the economic and security crisis currently bedeviling the entire nation.
The cleric who is also a former military officer, acknowledged that Nigerians are suffering following the challenges ravaging the country.
Gumi while fielding questions from newsmen lamented how most Nigerians are unable to feed themselves as prices of products continue to skyrocket in the market.
Reacting to the recent attacks on Abuja-Kaduna train, the Islamic cleric prayed for immediate release of those in the custody of the bandits.
Gumi enjoined Nigerians to remain united as the 2023 general elections draw near, to establish a government capable of alleviating the hardship imposed on Nigerians by 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.
