…Says I paid for identifying with voiceless Nigerians

The sacked Chief Imam of the National Assembly Legislators’ Quarters Mosque, Abuja, Sheikh Muhammad Nuru Khalid, yesterday said the termination of his appointment by the mosque’s management committee was a price he had to pay for identifying with the sufferings masses and speaking the truth to power.

Sheikh Khalid said this in an interview with Vanguard Newspapers in Abuja on Monday night, adding that he was undeterred by his sack.

He also revealed that he has been appointed by the Management Committee of a new Jum’mat Mosque behind the Central Bank Nigeria (CBN) Quarters, Abuja, to lead the congregation with effect from Friday, April 8.

According to him, “My sack is a reflection of how Nigeria is today. Many people are hiding under the cover of religion to perpetrate all manner unwholesome acts.

“Such people would stop at nothing to take away people like me, who are pro-masses and bold enough to speak the truth to power always on behalf of voiceless Nigerians.

“This is the price we pay for aligning with the people and identifying with their sufferings.

“By the Grace of Almighty Allah, I will be leading my new congregation this Friday, because as clerics we need a platform to operate.

“There’s a  Jum’mat mosque we built behind the CBN Quarters, in Abuja; I will now be leading the congregation there.”
