Twenty four hours after he was sacked by the Apo National Assembly Legislators’ Quarters Mosque for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari, Sheikh Nuru Khalid, has been appointed as the Chief Imam of a new Jum’mat Mosque in Abuja, 9news Nigeria gathered.

Sheikh Khalid who announced this on his social media platform on Tuesday morning while reacting to his sack on Monday, said he is to lead the congregation of the new Mosque with effect from Friday, April 8, 2022.

Commenting on the termination of his appointment by the Apo Mosque Committee, Sheikh Khalid said it was a necessary price he had to pay for “identifying with the suffering masses and speaking truth to power.”

He wrote, “My sack is a reflection of how Nigeria is today. Many people are hiding under the cover of religion to perpetrate all manner of unwholesome acts.

“Such people would stop at nothing to take away people like me, who are pro-masses and bold enough to speak the truth to power always on behalf of voiceless Nigerians.

“This is the price we pay for aligning with the people and identifying with their sufferings. By the Grace of Almighty Allah, I will be leading my new congregation this Friday, because as cleric we need a platform to operate.

“There’s a Jum’mat Mosque we built behind the CBN Quarters, in Abuja; I will now be leading the congregation there,” he added.
