EMIRSHIP TUSSLE: NSCIA cautions Ulama in Kano

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has raised concern over contradictory statements emanating from some quarters of the Ulama in Kano concerning the current traditional leadership crisis in the state.


NSCIA in a statement signed by Prof. Salisu Shehu on behalf of the Secretary-General urged the Muslim Ummah to exercise caution and refrain from making statements that could jeopardize peaceful co-existence in the state.



NSCIA said”At this trying period for the Ummah, the Council calls on Islamic scholars, who are custodians of Islamic learning, values and guidance, to exercise caution and refrain from making statements that can further exacerbate tension and polarise the Ummah. Ulama within and outside the state should prayerfully allow the current traditional leadership conflict in Kano, to be handled and resolved by the political, judicial and customary authorities”.


Meanwhile, the Council has called on Kano’s political, traditional and judicial authorities to resolve the current issue with the fear of Allah, fairness and justice.


The Council further appealed to the people of Kano to sincerely call on Allah, remain calm and avoid taking laws into their hands.


“May Allah grant us sustainable peace in our dear Country, Nigeria”the statement concluded.
