Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II has urged eligible Muslim voters to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) and vote for the best candidate, irrespective of party and religion, saying failure to do so is a betrayal of Islam.
Sanusi, the President General Jam’iyyatu Ansariddeen (Attijaniyya) who serves as the spiritual leader of the Tijaniyya Sufi order in Nigeria made the call on Saturday at the Annual Conference of the 4th Nigeria World Maulid Anniversary in honour of the Holy Prophet Muhammad in Lokoja.
Speaking at the conference themed ”The Prophetic Solutions To The Questions of Humanity”, Sanusi urged the group to vote for the best person that is most competent in every position irrespective of the political party or religious affiliations.

”Allah commands you that you should place trust in the hands of those people who are trustworthy.
