A delegation of the Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria has paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

President Buhari received members of the council on Monday at the Council Chambers of the State House in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Speaking on behalf of the delegation, the Vice-President, Sheikh Hadiyyatullahi Abdulrashid, revealed that the council was seriously worried about the security situation of the country.

He stressed the need for tougher measures to tackle the repeated killings in the northern region and urged the President to revisit the challenge of insecurity in the country.

Sheikh Abdulrashid further advised President Buhari to ensure that only men of integrity were employed in the police, military, and other security agencies to ensure efficient service delivery to all Nigerians.

He, however, commended the President for accomplishing much of what he promised before his election and described him as the captain of a capsising ship and the messiah needed by the country.

They also spoke about the alleged marginalisation of Muslims, violent conflicts between farmers and herdsmen, as well as the problems of drug abuse by youths among other critical national issues.

Responding to the burning issue of violent conflicts in some parts of the country, President Buhari said he was putting in his best.

He told the delegation that following his dissatisfaction with the performance of the police in Zamfara State, he ordered a massive transfer of officers and men who had stayed three years and above in the troubled state.

The President said further that the allegation of marginalisation illustrated the difficulty in his job, noting that he faced the same criticism from adherents of other faiths.

He, however, appealed to the religious leaders to instruct their followers on the importance of possessing their own voters’ cards which he described as a “national entitlement,” and to preach justice to all which is an instituted pillar of Islam. (Channels TV)
