Muslim students demand stop to killings in Southern Kaduna
• Urge ASUU, FG to resolve controversy over IPPIS
• Seek reversal of reviewed broadcast regulation code
President, Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit, Miftahudeen Thanni, has urged a stop to killings in Southern Kaduna.
Thanni, who spoke while answering questions from journalists at a press conference organised by MSSN to address some national issues, urged the government to order whoever that are perpetrating the evil going on in Southern Kaduna to put an end to it.
He also urged both the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government to reach a consensus on the controversy surrounding the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
MSSN said the controversy was saddening and weakens the hope in the reformation of the education sector, adding: “It will be unfair for the resolvable difference to affect the resumption of millions of Nigerian students at the end of the coronavirus lockdown.”
The Amir, who promised that the new executives would be prioritising human capital development, collaboration, and maintain a cordial relationship with society and governmental agencies,” implored the Federal Government to reverse the recently-reviewed broadcast regulation code by the National Broadcasting Corporation.
He said: “It is inappropriate for the government to consider criticisms as hate speech. Nigerians are angry and unpleased with the recent application of the reviewed Nigerian Broadcasting Code and it will only be appropriate for the government to reverse it.”
Freedom of speech is fundamental. Denying citizens such freedom defeats the essence of government.
“Though some Nigerians may be wayward in their speeches, the government should be conscious that what the citizens say is dependent on their programmes and activities.”
