*Urges support current govt, as he says success of Buhari administration is success of all Nigerians

By Tunji Wahab

An Islamic scholar, Sheik Abdur-Razaq Onaolapo Kasolayo, has said that the only solution for the economic recession plaguing the country currently is to have a God fearing leadership.

Kasolayo, who is the Founder and Chief Missioner (home and abroad) of the Zawiyatul-Sofwatur-Rahmatil-Islamiyyat (ZASRAM), Ota, Ogun State, was of the assertion that, “unless the leadership of the country turns a new leaf by governing with the fear of God, the suffering will persist unabated.”

The concerned cleric, who spoke on Friday while ushering in the new month of Rabiul-Awwal, regretted that, “the misrule of the past has turned into a monster that is devouring all of us now.”

Quoting copiously from the glorious Qur’an and prophetic tradition, Kasolayo reminded that, “God will not change the affairs of any community until that community decides to change their own affairs for better,” enthusing that, the moment the leadership of this country decided to be corrupt free and rule with the fear of God by doing the right things for the masses, the country will bounce back on course and the economy would shape up positively.

While commending the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari over his dogged fight against corruption, Kasolayo urged Nigerians to support the present government to succeed, reasoning that, “the success of Buhari’s administration will be to the benefit of all and sundry.”

He therefore called on all religious leaders across the country to relentlessly enlighten their followers on the need to be God conscious always “to avoid calamities which consequence will not spare anybody.”
