A group of Quranic Reciters, Memorizers, and Learners has petitioned the Senate to reject Nasir El-Rufai, the former governor of Kaduna State. Remember that Tinubu selected the former Kaduna State Governor to be one of his ministers, and his name has already been sent to the Senate for screening and approval.
In response to the development, the Islamic organisation requests President Tinubu to remove El-Rufai’s name from the list because he despises Quran reciters.
The group’s spokesman, Sheikh Sidi Ali, stressed in a statement that people like El-Rufai should not be seen around public office because of their intolerance and divisiveness.
According to him, appointing the former Kaduna State Governor is like a confrontation with almighty Allah because of his hatred for Quran reciters.
Sidi stated that appointing El-Rufai as a minister is repugnant to natural justice, equity, and good conscience insisting that El-Rufai’s name should be removed in the interest of justice, peace, harmony and development of the country.
He added that for peace, harmony and development to reign in Nigeria, El-Rufai’s name must be removed from the minister’s list.
“We have seen the name of the former Kaduna State Governor Mallam Nasir ElrufaI, a man that openly showed his hatred for Qur’anic students when he went to the House of Maulana Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi and evacuated hundreds of students with teargas late in the night in his effort to stop learning and memorization of the Holy Quran.
In fact, appointing him as a minister is like confrontation with the Almighty Allah and it will not help the government or the country. For that, we are appealing to President Tinubu to withdraw his name in the best interest of the country.” The statement stated.
