‘El-Rufai oppressed us’ – Kaduna Muslims tell Tinubu not to swear in ex-gov as minister

A coalition of Quranic Memorisers and Reciters has called on President Bola Tinubu not to swear in the immediate past governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-rufai, as minister.

Sheikh Sidi Aliyu Sise, the director of education at Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi Foundation, appealled to the president not to swear in unjust politicians.

According to him, the nomination of the former Kaduna governor and his screening by the National Assembly was “an injustice to Qur’anic memorisers and reciters”.

Sheikh Sise alleged that El-Rufai oppressed Almajirai when he was the Kaduna state governor.

He further appealed to President Tinubu to govern the country with the eyes of justice.

“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,” the Islamic scholar said.

He stressed that swearing in El-rufai as a minister would mean that Tinubu was in support of the injustice they suffered while El-rufai was governor.
