The Chief Imam of Busu in Lavun Local Government Area (LGA) of Niger State, Alhaji Alfa Usman, has charged Nigerian leaders, Muslims in particular, to renew faith in their belief and govern with the fear of God.

He urged the leaders to reflect on the worsening economic situation and come up with policies that would alleviate the plight of the Nigerians particularly in the holy month of Ramadan.

The cleric made the appeal at the opening of a Ramadan tafsir and breaking of fast which held at the Better Life branch of Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi Qur’anic Memorisation School, Busu, sponsored by Alhaji Mohammed Baba-Busu.

He said, “This year’s Ramadan came at the most trying period for Nigeria and her citizenry, irrespective of religious background and affiliations hence the need for the government to do something urgently to avoid more hunger induced death of Nigerians”.
