Jumu’ah Mubarak dear brothers and sisters.. let me begin by appreciating Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala (SWT) for the strength thus far; we have already crossed to the last #15days of Ramadan, inside which we will be looking forward to also, the last 10 special days and a night, Laylat-ul-Qadr.
Ramadan was and is supposed to meet us as peaceful beings(Muslims), that is to further deepen our commitment to having faith and our good deeds. To have ‘faith and do good works’ is a command from Allah to his servants especially if you are a leader, be it political, traditional or religious.
It is one of the most common phrases in the Holy Qur’an, mentioned more than 43 times to describe the righteous and even the way to salvation is, have faith and do good works. Because doing good and having faith are inseparable; good works are a natural manifestation of belief and it sustains your faith.
In all that’s said above, I have seen and met a man by privilege and predestination who has exhibited those qualities as a Muslim first, and then as a leader. He’s almost faultless in character even though no man is perfect except Allah.
Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna is one leader you will follow and you can never miss it. Like that popular saying; ‘character is like smoke’ and can’t be covered for long, for it must come out, so is this gentleman.
Dr. Nasiru Gawuna is a political character that will be studied in Nigeria in the nearest future, I can boldly say.
May Allah keep guiding and guarding him in all his affairs and grant him rahama and the full blessings of this holy month, Ameen.
