Sultan Should Lead Muslims In Protest Against Boko Haram –Aregbesola

NEWISSUES, Abuja

Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbe­sola has called on the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Abubakar to lead muslims in the coun­try to protest against the activities of Boko Haram.

 

He said this while de­livering a speech at the reunion lecture organised by the University of Lagos Muslim Alumni(UMA), entitled, “Political Stability: A Necessity for Economic Development.”

 

According to him, the Boko Haram sect is anti-Is­lam and does not represent the ideals of the religion.

 

He said, “We must rise up and denounce the evil perpetrated by the Boko Haram sect because they are tarnishing the peace­ful religion of Islam. I call on the Sultan of Sokoto to immediately lead other sin­cere muslims in a protest to denounce and totally reject the activities of the sect.

 

“They do not represent Islam. They are evel and wicked. We reject every­thing that the sect rep­resents and our religion forbids them. They are sycophants and we cannot continue to be quiet in the face of the insecurities.”

 

Also, former governor of Kwara State, Senator Bukola Saraki who was the guest speaker at the occasion said that corrup­tion and political instability are destroying the nation’s economy.

 

He was represented by a former commissioner of works in Kwara State, Ab­dulRauf Shittu.
