2023 Presidency: Special Prayer To Hold For Tinubu In Mecca

A special prayer will be held for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Mecca, Saudi Arabia to seek Allah’s blessing for Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.

According to the invitation card, the session tagged ‘Special Tawaf for Asiwaju’ would commence on Thursday, April 28 at 12 noon with participants wearing their ihram (sacred dress of Muslim pilgrims) attire.

Tawaf refers to encircling the Ka’abah seven times in an anti-clockwise direction as part of Umrah or Hajj while supplicating.

“The session is to commence by 12 noon and would be conducted around Kaabah at the centre of Islam’s most important mosque, the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

“Participants are to wear the ihram attire and congregate at the King Abdulaziz Gate.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Eromosele Ebhomele, in a statement titled, “2023 election: Special Tawaf To Hold In Mecca For Tinubu” said; “The Tawaf is expected to be attended by some Islamic scholars and political leaders from Nigeria, including the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa,”

Obasa was quoted as saying the event was also to thank God for the former governor of Lagos ahead of the presidential election.

According to Obasa, all those expected to partake in the Tawaf have the faith that God would ensure peaceful electioneering and victory for Tinubu.

“We have come to seek the favour of Allah and His blessings for Asiwaju in the coming election. We are not testing Allah’s will and power but soliciting His blessings, support and anointing because Allah is sufficient for us.

“We are doing this in support of Asiwaju’s presidential ambition.

“Having consulted widely and across the country, we strongly believe that every other thing required for the success of the election and victory for Asiwaju are in the hand of Almighty Allah,” the Speaker said while urging other Muslims and well-meaning Nigerians to join the session.

Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State and chairman of the Southern Governors Forum, urged Nigerians on Wednesday to vote for competence in the next general elections, stressing that the outcome of the vice president would not have an impact on the effectiveness of any administration.
