Nigeria: 2015 Election: ‘A litmus test for Nigeria’- religious leader

Foremost religious leader and businessman, Asiwaju Khamis Badmus has warned that failure in the 2015 election in the country would affect the growth of Nigeria.

The Asiwaju Musulumi of Yorubaland said this in an Eid Maolud message through his Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Alhaji Dawood Ajetunmobi.

Badmus also said it was important both candidates of the Peoples Democtratic Party, PDP, and All Progressive Congress, APC, while canvassing for votes from the electorates across the country, to refrain from using combative words so as not to set the nation on fire.

He added that “peace and unity of the country before, during and after 2015 election should be made the focal point of prayers of all adherents of Islam. Unity of the country is not negotiable, adding that all hands must be on deck to ensure that the country enjoys free , fair , credible exercise in the February, 2015 general elections.

“Year 2015 is a very critical year in the life of this nation.The forthcoming presidential election will serve as litmus test to know whether the country will still remain the same.”

He noted that the birthday of “Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) is one remarkable event in the world today that has spiritual connotation,” and urged Muslims to use the occasion to pray for the nation.
“There are ominous signs that there is danger ahead.I therefore appeal to Muslims and Christians across the country to join hands in the prayer session to avert the danger”, Badmus said.
