Aisha Yesufu, a Nigerian socio-political activist has spoken on General Abdulsami prayer that God should touch the hearts of bandits to repent.
Recall that on Tuesday, former head of state, General Abdulsami (rtd), offered prayers in an interview with reporters after observing rakaats prayers for Eid-el-kabar. General Abdulsami said that he prayed that Allah would touch the hearts of bandits, so that they can denounce banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other criminal activities.
Aisha Yesufu has reacted to his prayer on twitter, she tweeted, In the meantime, General Abdulsalam is praying for God to touch the hearts of bandits. A former President and General! Why then was money wasted to train them to be Generals? We should simply have given babalawos, bokas, dibias mallams, pastors etc the monies to be praying.
In my opinion, I think what Aisha Yesufu is trying to say is that, there is more to be done, not just prayer alone, that is why the Generals are usually invested upon.
