President Erdoğan sent by God, AKP official says

ANKARA – Doğan News Agency

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was sent by God, a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) official said on Dec. 26.

Speaking at an AKP congress in Ankara’s Kahramankazan district, Belma Erdoğan, AKP’s women’s branch local administration head, said Erdoğan was a hope for the “ummah,” the global Muslim community.

“Our president is a person so divine, he is a human being sent by Allah and a hope for this ummah. Is there any way other than to pursue him, to serve him on his path? No, there isn’t. Look, most people ask me: ‘You are not looking for a job, you are not looking for food, you have the strength, your child has grown up. Why are you here?’ And I say: ‘Here I am, for the future of children. Yes, I’m not looking for a job, I’m not looking for food, but I am honored to be running after my leader,” she said.

She also said that “no power could ever displace Turkey from its position.”
