Sheikh Nuru Khalid, the Islamic cleric sacked for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari has gotten a new appointment.
Mr Khalid was earlier suspended at the weekend before being sacked on Monday by the Apo Legislative Quarter Central Mosque in Abuja.
His new appointment at a new Jum’mat Mosque behind the Central Bank Nigeria (CBN) Quarters, Abuja, comes same day he was relieved of his duties.
He is to lead the new congregation with effect from Friday, April 8, 2022.
Reacting to his sack, he said it was a necessary price he had to pay for identifying with the suffering masses and speaking truth to power and thereafter announced his new place of assignment.
“By the Grace of Almighty Allah, I will be leading my new congregation this Friday, because as clerics we need a platform to operate,” he said Monday evening. “There’s a Jum’mat mosque we built behind the CBN Quarters, in Abuja; I will now be leading the congregation there.”
