There were indicatiins that loyalists of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki have engaged islamic clerics in vigil and fasting.
In a report in chat with Punch, one Mr. Kayode Yusuf, who is popularly called ‘Maja,’ the Kwara State capital on Saturday, said prayer sessions were being held all over the state, especially in the Ilorin motropolis.
Yusuf said he had mobilised over 500 Muslim clerics while about 1,000, including the Chief Iman of Ilorin, Mohammad Solihu were praying in different areas in the state for Saraki’s victory.
He said, “All of us in Ilorin, including the Chief Imam of Ilorin, are involved in the prayers. Saraki is our leader. He must not come down. Within the short time that he was elevated as the Senate President, we know what we have benefited from him.
“I have mobilised more than 500 Imans and over 1,000 others are praying in different areas. They have been praying and fasting. Even the women are praying for him. Saraki is our benefactor. Even the uneducated do not want anything to happen to Bukola Saraki. They are not sleeping but are also praying. The prayers will last till Saraki’s ordeal is over.”
