The Amir (President) of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, MSSN, Lagos State Area Unit, Miftahudeen Thanni has expressed concern over the continued killings in Southern Kaduna and called for an immediate end to the “acts of cruelty.”
Thanni who recently took over as the President of the society made the remarks, on Tuesday, at a media briefing by MSSN to address some national issues, held in Alausa, Ikeja,
He called on the government to check whoever is perpetrating the evil going on in Southern Kaduna and put an end to it.
“One of the primary responsibilities of government is to secure the citizens and the properties of the citizens.
“Security is key, so because of this we still implore the government to do the needful, the government is trying but they have not done their best if they can do better I think this will be a forgotten issue.
“I also want to implore citizens and indigenes of Kaduna state especially Southern Kaduna in particular to sue for peace, to embrace peace at all times, not only by speech but by all their activities.
“They should exhibit peace at all times with each other, they should be tolerant at all time”, adding that if they can do all the recommendations, “there will be enduring peace in Kaduna at all times.”
Thanni, also, called on 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 is saddening and weakens the hope in the reformation of the education sector, “It will be unfair for the resolvable difference to affect the resumption of millions of Nigerian students at the end of the coronavirus lockdown,” he said.
