Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), the apex Islamic body in the Northern party of the country has stated that only good governance will stop agitation of some segments for the break up of the country.
This is coming just as it also asked the Federal Government to address calls for break-up of Nigeria by improving security, tackling the economic hardship and massive youth unemployment in the country.
These form the position of the body in its end of Ramadan fasting message to Muslim faithful in the country.
JNI said addressing those challenges will reinvent the spirit of patriotism among the citizens for an indivisible Nigeria.
Signed the Secretary-General, Sheikh (Dr.) Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, the statement reads, “We call on the government in respect to the perceived calls for the fragmentation of Nigeria from different quotas, to take the trend as a wake-up call to improve and/or rejig the security network, tackle economic hardship and transparently address the seeming unemployment bog in order to reinvent the spirit of patriotism for an indivisible Nigeria.
“Lastly, while wishing us all Allah’s pardon in these sacred days and after, we pray fervently for an accepted Ramadan Fasting as well as the Eid-el-Fitr, we also pray to Allah, the Ever Hearing and Exceedingly Merciful to ease for our leaders the difficult terrain and burden of governance.
“May He as well keep the Nigerian nation intact and restore back peace and security in our dear country. Aamin,” JNI prayed.
