A coalition of Quranic Memorisers and Reciters has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to swear in former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai as minister.
Sheikh Sidi Aliyu Sise, the Director of Education, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi Foundation, appealed to Tinubu not to swear in unjust politicians.
According to him, the nomination of El-Rufai and his screening by the National Assembly was injustice to Qur’anic memorisers and reciters.
He alleged that El-rufa’i oppressed Almajirai under his leadership when he was a governor.
He appealed to Tinubu to govern the country with the eyes of justice.
Sheikh Sidi pleaded, “We demand for justice as a result of injustice, harassment, trauma, and difficulties encountered by our disciples, teachers and many Qur’anic scholars, when he evacuated our innocent pupils from the House of Maulana Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi in Kaduna to unknown destination.”
He said swearing in El-rufa’i as minister would mean that Tinubu is in support of the injustice they suffered while El-rufa’i was governor.
