President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has cautioned religious leaders against condemning and cursing the country during their sermons in Mosques and Churches.

The president made the request during Ramadan Iftar with traditional rulers and religious leaders at the State House in Abuja on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Tinubu said if a leader is bad, the Imams, pastors and citizens should wait for 2027 general elections so they can vote out the person, charging them to limit their criticism of those in office.

He said;

"The love of the nation is in your hands. Pray for our country. Educate our children. The sermons we preach to the members of our churches and mosques are important.
Do not condemn your own nation. As a Yoruba man and as our fathers will say, "?no matter how slippery the bottom of your child is, you must leave the beads there. Leave the beads there.
This is your country; do not condemn it in sermons, do not abuse the nation. Leadership is meant for changes. Yes, this leader is bad, fine. Wait until the next election to change him, but do not condemn your country. Do not curse Nigeria. This is a beautiful land."
