On November 9, 2017 35 Comments

Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Nigeria Supreme Council on Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, yesterday warned against any injustice in appointments and allocation of resources in the country, saying such actions are capable of breeding crisis and disunity in the society.

This is even as President of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Reverend Samson Ayokunle, said marginalization is one major issue forcing some people of the Eastern extraction, under the aegis of Biafra, to seek separation from the Nigerian federation and asked the government to address their grievances.

He also insisted that Biafrans are not terrorists but people who want to be heard over marginalization they were facing.

The declarations of the Sultan and the CAN leader drew support from Yoruba socio-cultural and political organization, Afenifere, and Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, who noted that the duo captured in essence what is currently going on in the country The Sultan and the CAN President spoke in their goodwill messages delivered at the opening ceremony of a Collaborative Interfaith Peace and Security Capacity Building Workshop, organized by the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, NARC, in collaboration with Inter-Religious Peace Initiative in Abuja.

Let there be justice, equitable resources distribution Represented by the Executive Secretary of Abuja National Mosque, Alhaji Ibrahim Jega, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III said inclusive governance from leaderships at all levels alone is capable of ending the many problems facing the country at the moment, and tasked those at the helm of affairs to rise and do the needful.

He tasked leadership at all levels to be equitable, fair and just to every member of the society in the distribution of amenities and resources, irrespective of the political, religious and tribal inclinations of members of the society.

“When it comes to issue of dispensation of justice and equitable distribution of resources, that should be done without fear or favour, affection or ill will.

“You are not there yourself as a leader and because you have some encounters with a group of people, either a person or a group of persons in a particular area, you should not hold on to it so as not to extend justice to them.

“Allah says “do not allow your hatred of a particular group of people to make you decide not to extend justice to them. Whatever happens, you must extend the spirit of justice to them all without fear or favour, affection or ill-will.

“This issue of justice goes down to whatever decision you are going to take, whether it’s against you or against your parents or against your own children or against your other relations, let alone saying you will not extend justice because you know somebody or because he is from your town. Justice must be based on fair and equitable distribution of assets to all,” Sultan Abubakar said.

    What baffles me is that all this Christians are here while IPOB are being prosecuted for nothing and they said nothing. As if enough is not enough, the governors invited the Fulani army to kill innocent people for committing no crime, to bad. We are done with this dirty business. If you like brand us terrorist Na you sabi. We know that we are not, but determined to leave the enclave called Nigeria. That’s all. CAN . Is a failure to the IPOB and we can never bank on them for anything again

    Mr. CAN presidoo, it’s too late for you to raise a voice now. Many will brand you as been irresponsible and a coward, but, I will not go to that extent due to the office i assume you occupy. However, i urge you to execute a diligent research to discover really the kind of boldness, principles and commitment the early christians like Peter, John baptist and Daniel operated upon. The result will, serve as a moral compass to you and your fellow. Buckle up dear!
