The Sky Didn’t Fall When I Asked Jonathan To Resign, Says Sacked Imam


Sheikh Nuhu Khalid, founder, Islamic Research and Da’awah Foundation, says his criticism of government’s inefficiency is not new.

The cleric, who was removed as the Chief Imam of Apo Legislative Quarters Central Mosque in Abuja after he criticised the Buhari administration, said the sky did not fall when he condemned insecurity under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

The cleric said this when he appeared on Daily Politics, a programme on Trust TV.

Recall that Sheik was suspended and subsequently fired after delivering a sermon on insecurity.

In the sermon, the Sheik had said, "Nigerian masses should resort to only one term which is – protect our lives, we will come out to vote; let us be killed, we will not come out to vote, since it’s only elections that you people know."

The Sheik, also known as "Digital Imam" on social media, claimed he was not granted a fair hearing when the mosque committee suspended him.

He also stated that only God has the power to enthrone or dethrone. The mosque committee then relieved him of his responsibilities, claiming that he had shown no contrition following his suspension. The Imam stated that he had no regrets about his remarks.
