Chief Imam of the University of Ibadan, Prof Abdulrahman Oloyede, has enjoined the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to learn from the mistakes of the present administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oloyede noted that this is necessary for the incoming administration to run a successful administration.
The Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies made these appeals while addressing journalists shortly after he led a congregation of thousands of Muslims to observe the obligatory Eld el-Fitr prayer on Friday.
The Eid prayer was attended by the former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasidi Adewolu Ladoja; the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola and other prominent personalities in the state.
The Eid el-Fitr festival is usually observed by Muslims on the first day of the month of Shawwal which signifies the end of the one-month Ramadan fasting.
Oloyede, while addressing journalists after the prayer, urged Tinubu to learn from all the errors and mistakes committed by the Buhari administration since 2015.
He noted that all these would guide and allow the President-elect to run a successful government.
He said that the former Governor of Lagos State should start doing as if his administration would end tomorrow.
The cleric further advised Tinubu to be fair to all categories of people irrespective of their religion, ethnic or political affiliations.
Oloyede said: “My message is that the incoming government should learn from the outgoing government. When they were coming they thought that it will last forever and they behave as if it will last forever. But, come May 29th, it will be all over.
“This incoming government should start now as if tomorrow will be the end of the regime. They should make sure they do what will make Nigeria peaceful and what will make Nigerians happy.
“We have become more divided than ever before. What is important is that whoever is in power should be fair to the people and fear Allah.
“If you are just to people, nobody will ask which religion you belong to. Let those in power be just to all categories of people and leave the rest to Allah.”
