A group, the Ansar-Ud-Deen Youth Association of Nigeria, a Yoruba Islamic organisation affiliated to the Ansar-Ud-Deen Islamic Organisation, has said that critics of President Muhammadu Buhari are people who are seeking to frustrate the president and add to the sufferings of Nigerians.
Mr Bashir Omipidan, the President of the group, stated this on Thursday in Abuja at a media briefing ahead of the association’s annual conference slated for Friday.
The Street Journal reports that activities lined up for the occasion include a special Jumaat service, visitations to hospitals, orphanages and prisons, among others.
Omipidan, therefore, warned individuals and groups who indulge in unnecessary and vicious criticism of the president to refrain from doing so to enable Buhari to concentrate on delivering good leadership to the people.
“ADYAN hereby remind those who are bent on not only frustrating our dear president, but equally ready to add to the sufferings of Nigerians that the citizenry have resolve to end their nefarious activities.
“ADYAN notes with sadness shocking revelation of how our supposed leaders milked this country prior to the 2015 election, posterity and legacy will surely judge.
“In this light ADYAN stand very strongly behind the Federal Government’s Anti-Corruption posture in all sectors of our economy. We are convinced that the war against corruption will be convincingly won soon,” Omipidan said.
The group leader also also stated that the revelations emanating from the trial of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki and others, were indicative of the immediate past administration’s level of corruption, which Buhari is currently trying to rid the country of.
