Islamic Group Speaks

Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has asked Oduduwa Republic agitators to state what they have in stock for Muslim children and women in the South West and what their plan is for hijab.

MURIC also wants to know if there is any provision for civil shariah which “Yoruba Muslims have been demanding for ages.”

The Islamic group said it was drawing the attention of the agitators of Oduduwa Republic to the plight of Muslims in Yorubaland.

It said that leaders of the groups agitating for breakaway must admit that there is a strain in Christian/Muslim relationship in the South West and must profer solutions to addressing it.

Governor Ortom Speaks

Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, says Nigeria lacks courageous leaders who can tell the federal government the truth.

Speaking on Thursday in Abuja at a lecture organised by the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) as part of its 2021 press week, Ortom said the country does not have sustainable leadership that can save the nation.

He said the spate of kidnappings of citizens across the country is a dangerous trend.

On the performance of the new service chiefs so far, the President said: “Oh yes, they have been in the system all the way, they know what is wrong, they know what is right and I think they are doing their best. I hope their best will be good enough for Nigeria.”

Wike Speaks On Presidency

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has claimed that nobody can become Nigeria’s president without securing the votes of his state combined with Lagos or Kano.

Wike, in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, spoke at the grand finale of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) local government election campaign at Ulakwo in Etche Local Government area on Thursday.

According to the Rivers governor, such pivotal position established the importance of Rivers in the political scheme of the country and nobody would be allowed to undermine it.
