By Steve Oni, Ilorin
The Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed has assured Kwarans of his readiness to deploy the law and public fund to achieve peace, unity and progress in the state
The governor made this commitment in Ilorin on Tuesday in separate meetings with leaderships of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kwara State and Quareeb Association.
According to the governor, “I stand before God and man to effectively deploy the instrumentalities of the law and public fund to achieve peace, unity and progress in the state. Anyone who participated directly or indirectly in public disorder shall be brought to book”.
Governor Ahmed urged religious bodies not to allow miscreants, who for economic reasons, cause disaffections among various religious adherents in the state.
“This state is a State of Harmony. And we must all collectively work to sustain our cherished peaceful environment. Don’t play into the hands of mischief makers by labeling the activities of miscreants on New Year eve as religious issue. The benefit of unity is too high to allow it slip our hands”.
The governor assured the religious bodies he will ensure justice by bringing perpetrators to book and averting future occurrence through proactive measures.
Responding, chairman, CAN, Prof Tunde Opoola, urged the governor to ensure that justice is truly done as a way of assuring that the Christian communities in the state renew their confidence in the state government.
A leader of the community, Mr Gambari Usman said the community was alerted by a Muslim woman whose daughter was being raped in her presence. Gambari commended Christian community in the area for coming to the rescue of the Muslim lady.
On his part, Chairman Alfathiu Quarib, Mal. Oniye Abdulrasak said the association has had harmonious relationship with the Christian community and dissociated the organisation from any attack on any church.
