Islamic Group Speaks
Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has described the call made by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Robert Clarke for President Muhammadu Buhari to hand over Nigerian government to the military as outright balderdash.
Recall that Clarke had recently suggested that Buhari should delegate his executive powers to the Chief of Defence Staff who should thereafter declare a state of emergency in all the 36 states of the federation.
Clarke said that a temporary military rule would bring the state of insecurity to a halt and balance the economy.
“Mbaka Is Worst Than Gumi” -Garba
Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has condemned the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka for blessing Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Naija News reports that the politician who earlier questioned the relationship between popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi and bandits groups in the country, took to his Twitter account on Wednesday noon to say “blessing Kanu is like a known Islamic Cleric blessing Shekau.”
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has kicked against the calls for Nigeria’s break-up by some groups in the country.
He stated this while speaking at his Penthouse residence, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, when he played host to members of Tiv professionals Group (TPG) led by Prof Zacharys Anger Gundu.
The former president asked that if Nigeria breaks up what would be the fate of minority ethnic groups in the nation.
According to Obasanjo, if the likes of Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa/Fulani ethnic groups stand alone, the minority groups may be oppressed as they would turn out to be smaller countries.
