A prominent Islamic scholar, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, has urged Nigerian politicians and religious leaders to fear God and ensure justice and fairness to all their followers regardless of their tribes or religions.
Daily Trust reported that Sheikh Bauchi at the launch of a biography and video documentary organised in his honour by the Arewa Next Step for Tinubu (ANEST) and Blue Bells Promoters said:
“The Almighty Allah has commanded all leaders from family level to districts head, local governments, right to the president to be just, transparent and treat their subjects equally to ensure sustainable peace.”
The revered Islamic scholar asked Nigerian youths to seek knowledge, noting that education plays key roles in the development of individuals and society.
In other news, some Islamic scholars have said that the call for the improvement of the status of the Sharia law in Nigeria by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad, cannot be interpreted as an attempt to Islamise Nigeria.
The scholars under the aegis of Concerned Islamic Scholars (CIS) condemned the outcry by the Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) and a human rights organisation on alleged moves to Islamise the country.
The CIS said Sharia law does not necessarily mean Islamisation of Nigeria, as wrongly insinuated.
In other news, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has advised Nigerian Muslims to avoid joining any new protest against the government's institutions.
The admonition was issued in a statement on Monday, November 9, by Professor Ishaq Akintola, the group director.
MURIC said the country is still healing from the last EndSARS protest in which many government and private properties were destroyed by hoodlums.
