The Coalition of Quranic Memorisers and Reciters has cautioned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to swear 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 to tread cautiously and not to swear in unjust politicians with questionable character.
According to them, El-Rufai oppressed Almajirai under his leadership as a governor.
He appealed to Tinubu to look into the country with the eyes of Justice and look into the plight of the oppressed, not to succumb to pressure to swear in El-Rufa’i as minister.
Sheikh Sidi pleaded, “We demand 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 an unknown destination.”
Recall that El-Rufai and 47 others were part of the nominees Tinubu sent to the Senate for Confirmation, but the ex-governor was not part of the ministers confirmed on Monday.
