2023 Presidency: Special Prayer To Hold For Tinubu In Mecca

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, a special prayer is to be held on Thursday, April 28, for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, in Mecca.

Punch gathered that the session tagged ‘Special Tawaf for Asiwaju’ would commence at 12 noon with participants wearing their ihram (sacred dress of Muslim pilgrims) attire.

In a copy of the invitation card obtained by Punch on Tuesday evening, participants are expected to converge on the King Abdulaziz Gate, Saudi Arabia.

Tawaf refers to encircling the Ka’abah seven times in an anti-clockwise direction as part of Umrah or Hajj while supplicating.

“The session is to commence by 12 noon and would be conducted around Kaabah at the centre of Islam’s most important mosque, the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

“Participants are to wear the ihram attire and congregate at the King Abdulaziz Gate.

“The Tawaf is expected to be attended by some Islamic scholars and political leaders from Nigeria, including the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa,” a statement from the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Eromosele Ebhomele, said.
