Stop using killings as excuse to gain power, cleric tells politicians
He made the statement shortly after inaugurating new executive members of NASFAT in Kaduna.
He urged any politician who wants Nigeria’s progress to support government in proffering solution to insecurity instead of hyping the killings.
Yusuf said: “If these politicians love Nigeria, why can’t they support the government to end the killing of innocent Nigerians without being at the corridor of power.
He explained that NASFAT is not a political or tribal society, but one committed to the progress of the country.
“Our politicians must stop dancing on the grave of the dead. As a people let us do our best to save this country,” he said.
He expressed concern that treasury looters are celebrated more than religious leaders who have supported the development of the country.
The chairman disclosed that NASFAT has trained over 3000 youths on vocational training as cake baking, soap making and others.
NASFAT zonal Vice Chairman Adekunle Adesanya, charged the incoming executives to be God-fearing in the discharge of their duties.
Also, the outgoing women leader, Hajiya Kudirat, and Public Relations Officer, Zainab Tanimu, urged the new executives to carry other members along.
In a related development, the Diocesan Bishop of Lagos, Rt. Rev. Humphrey Bamisebi Olumakaiye, and Chief Imam of Lagos, Alhaji Muhammed Suleiman, have called for collaboration to tackle corruption.
