A Cleric and former National Missioner of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Shiekh Muyideen Bello, has called on Nigerians to stop the practice of patronising fortune tellers.
Bello made the call during the annual Ramadan lecture organised by the BOMARAH Foundation in Lagos on Sunday.
He advised Nigerians to hold onto God to resist temptation, while remaining steadfast in worshiping God.
According to him, God has various ways of tempting His creatures and as such approaching fortune tellers and marabounds amounts to nothing in the end.
He said only the Creator, God, can change the fortune of anyone.
Rather, Bello urged Nigerians to be steadfast and be patient, adding that no one could pre-empt what God would do.
“Prophet Ayuba was sick for several years and Allah did not kill him until all his families, property perished and Allah spared one of his wives, Ramat to take care of him,” Bello quoted from the Qur’an.
He, however, urged individuals to try and help one another in their various communities; especially those who do not have the means of repaying them.
According to him, this will go a long way in increasing love among the people.
