Excerpt of speech delivered by Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky in ABU Zaria Central mosque during pre-khudba lecture in early May 1992 (28th Shawwal, 1412).

"We must realize that this will not take us out of the woods. Even if all the people were to call for the resignation of Babangida, a worse tyrant will take up the mantle. That is the fact. When Shagari was the president, people wanted him out. The moment he was toppled, Buhari took over. Then people felt that things were much better with Shagari than with Buhari. Now after removal of Buhari, people are again saying Buhari is even better. Now, if Babangida is to step aside, people will agitate why will he not come back?

It is like a spoilt car. You keep changing drivers because of your erroneous belief that the problem is with the drivers. As long as the car is not repaired, the journey will never be smooth. The problem is not about drivers.
For the avoidance of doubts, only a just system will produce just leaders. Thus, our efforts must be geared towards ensuring a just system. A just system will necessarily have to precede just leaders.

Wassalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi Ta'ala wa Barakatuhu."
