Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate who recently recently performed the Lesser Hajj, Umrah in Mecca returned home on Monday
Presidential Candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was spotted performing lesser hajj in Mecca on Saturday alongside Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru and others.
The APC presidential candidate has since returned to Nigeria from Mecca in Saudi Arabia where he performed the Umrah pilgrimage (also known as lesser hajj). Tinubu returned to Nigeria on Monday.
Earlier, Tinubu said that he embarked on the trip to Saudi Arabia to observe lesser hajj to seek spiritual rebirth and pray for Nigeria.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Kano’s premier independent radio, Freedom Radio, which was monitored by Daily Trust, the former Lagos governor said he had ‘just’ finished observing seven rounds between Safa and Marwa.
“I just finished performing the Umrah. I did the seven rounds of tawaf, I did the seven trips between Safa and Marwa by myself.
I am here in Saudi Arabia. It is a personal trip. It is a trip for spiritual rebirth. I like coming to perform the Umrah every now and then. It is an opportunity to connect with Almighty Allah, Lam ya lid wa lam yulad.
“We need his guidance. Nigeria is in need of prayers, and that is why we are here praying for our country, self and society,” the APC candidate said.
