Biafrans Are Not Terrorists – CAN President Declares

igbo youths - Biafrans

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.

      If u know Christ n claim u believe in him u wouldn’t say such. If Jesus were to b of d world d world will love him. Because he is not of d world, he was hated by d world n those who claim to believe in him but never want to emulate him. CAN by d standard of d bible are anti Christ. Believe me or not I have said the truth n that’s d only thing that will set me free

    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!

Buhari Approves Re-Organisation Of Nigeria Police, Decentralized Force CID And Creates New Formations

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the re-organization of the Nigeria Police Force and the creation of a new unit among other structural changes.

In a May 27 police circular signed by the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu, it was gathered that the Nigerian President approved the detachment of the Force Intelligence Bureau from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, so it can become a full-fledged department. He also approved the decentralisation of the FCID, with two new additional annex offices in Enugu and Gombe respectively for criminal cases emanating from the south-south and south-east zones and the north-east zone.

There are now 8 departments in the Police Force and four annexes. Each annex will be headed by an Assistant Inspector-General of Police who will be reporting to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police heading the FCID at the headquarters in Abuja.

IGP Adamu Mohammed who disclosed that the restructuring is aimed at fully integrating “intelligence-led policing strategy into the Community Policing initiative in addressing the threats that the dynamics of crimes pose”, also announced the creation of five additional Zonal Commands.

They include Ondo/Ekiti Commands with the headquarters in Akure; Enugu/Anambra/Ebonyi Commands with the headquarters in Awka; Bayelsa/Rivers Commands with the headquarters in Yenagoa; Yobe/Borno Commands with the headquarters in Maiduguri; and Katsina/Kaduna Commands in Katsina.

The statement added;

“In order to enhance the capacity of the four premiere Police Colleges in Kaduna, Ikeja, Maiduguri and Orji River towards meeting the training and capacity development projection of the Force in relation to junior cadre officers, Mr President approved that the status of the commandants of the colleges be upgraded to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police.

“This will strengthen administration, enhance the commitment of staff, and engender higher level of discipline and the quality of training at the colleges.

“These approvals were granted by the President in furtherance to the need to expand and strengthen the intelligence department to aid in the entrenchment of the community policing practice as approved by the Federal Government.”

President Buhari who is the chairman of the police council which includes 36 state governors, is now expected to summon a meeting of the council to ratify the reorganisation.
