The Chief Imam of Admiralty Villa Central Mosque, Sheikh Sa’adudeen Muhammad Jamiu, on Friday cautioned Nigerians to refrain from making personal demands from elected or appointed government officials.
The Cleric said this in Ilorin during  a lecture delivered atJuma’at Service, saying such demands are often beyond what the officials could afford without breaching the law.
The programme was attended by the Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and Senator Ibrahim Yahya Oloriegbe .
He reminded them of a duty to serve the people as a whole instead of being made to serve any selfish interest of individuals.
“Our Governor here is a servant of the people. The same thing applies to the senator and other officials. They are there to serve the people and God will ask them to give account of their stewardship. But I urge our people to stop making demands or seeking personal favours that are beyond them. Let them serve the people,” Jamiu stated.
Jamiu also prayed God to stand by the Governor and his administration to fulfil their campaign promises.
He commended the Kwara State Governor AbdulRazaq, for his discipline, humility, and a culture of always keeping low profile especially at worship centres, adding however that he ought to be seated at the front roll as the political leader of the state.
The Imam meanwhile urged Muslim faithful to fear God and imbibe the spirit and lessons of the upcoming festival which he said include sacrifice, forbearance and firm belief in God’s destiny for everyone.
He urged the faithful to pray for the country and Kwara, warning against divisive and selfish tendencies.
