Why I Will Not Pray For Buhari

“The world will not respect Africa until Nigeria earns that respect. The black people of the world need Nigeria to be great as a source of pride and confidence” – Nelson Mandela

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been in London for the past 45 days and the Acting President Osinbajo told Nigerians that the Nigerian ruler is “Hale and hearty”. President Buhari’s wife rushed to Saudi Arabia for prayers in the Lesser Hajj and when she returned she called for prayers for “Nigerian leaders”. The information Minister, Lia Muhammad, said “President Buhari is not in the hospital”. Supporters of the President are calling for prayers and fasting for the health of the aging tyrant. The clear conclusion of the 45 days absence of President Buhari is that he is very sick and his handlers do not want him to return to Nigeria because they do not want Nigerians to know the true condition of his health or as he says, he does not want to return till his doctors say he can, and they have strongly objected. The cabal are calling for prayers because they hope a miracle will happen.

The above quotation of the great Madiba of Africa, Nelson Mandela, about how the greatness of Africa is related to the greatness of Nigeria is right and correct. No country has a higher population of the Blacks than Nigeria. But sadly today Nigeria has a wicked, evil and bloodthirsty tyrant who is a Saudi puppet as it’s leader. This man murdered 1000+ Nigerians in December 2015 #ZariaMassacre, dumped their dead bodies in mass graves and four days latter celebrated this monumental inhumanity with the Savage Saudi King on phone.

The question is why should I pray for a man that brutally murdered 1000+ Nigerian children, women, the aged and men, and after the inhuman massacre wickedly dumped the dead bodies of his victims in mass graves thus denying their love ones the right to bury them in accordance to Islamic traditions? How can I pray for such an evil man while I have being praying for these innocent Nigerians that he brutally murdered and dumped their dead bodies in mass graves? Brutal killings was not the only crime committed by the Nigerian army during ZariaMassacre. Nigerian women and girls were raped, soldiers shot women in their private parts and stabbed their breasts with bayonets while chanting “No Shia in Nigeria”. Innocent Nigerians were burnt alive by the Nigerian army during ZariaMassacre and Nigerians were bombarded in the iconic Husseiniya Islamic center and buried alive.

After President Buhari and his murderous gang murdered 1000+ Shia civilians in Zaria, they launched massive campaigns of calumny and demonization against Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky who was a victim of their inhumanity, the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) & Shia Islam. After the ZariaMassacre President Buhari and his Corrupt Army Chief Buratai claimed that the 1000+ Shia civilians they murdered “are worst than Boko Haram”. But today Nigerians have realized that President Buhari and Buratai are bloodthirsty mass-murderers of innocent Nigerians as these murderous criminals slaughtered 1000+ innocent Nigerians to serve the evil agenda of Saudi savages. Today Nigerians have seen how peaceful #IMN & Shia Muslims are & Nigerians have thrown all Buhari, Elrufai and Buratai lies to their faces.

The ZariaMassacre is not the only incident that huge numbers of innocent Nigerians lost their lives in President Buhari’s administration. The brutality and inhumanity of the Nigerian army against the peaceful pro-Biafra protesters is another incident of inhumanity by the Buhari administration. Pro-Biafra activists are peaceful, why is the Nigerian army under president Buhari’s command killing them? They are Nigerians and we do not all have to agree with their demands but why the brutal killings by the Nigerian army? Instead of praying for the evil tyrant Buhari that sent heavily-armed Soldiers to kill these peaceful pro-Biafra protesters, I will pray for the souls of the innocent Nigerians that were murdered.


Another sad incident is the Southern Kaduna killings where murderous terrorists parading as “herdsmen” murdered more than 800 Nigerians in Southern Kaduna. These murderous terrorists slaughtered women and children, and burnt homes and villages. The saddest issue of this inhumanity is that Kaduna state Governor Nasir Elrufai paid these murderous terrorists huge sum of money that they used to buy sophisticated weapons and continue the killings. President Buhari failed to provide adequate security to protect defenseless Nigerians in Southern Kaduna and for this reason I rather pray for the innocent Nigerians that lost their lives in Southern Kaduna.

On a final note, As a Muslim death is inevitable to everyone. Life in this world is temporary and as we attend funerals of others, so shall others attend our funeral. I do not celebrate death but I will never pray to God to prolong the life of a bloodthirsty tyrant who is killing innocent Nigerians and dumping their dead bodies in mass graves. But I will certainly pray for those innocent Nigerians that were unjustly murdered by the evil tyrant.
