Arrangements are underway for special prayers after September 22nd’s Jummaa’t service for late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, just as youth groups have threatened to go on protest if no action is taken against Governor El-Rufai over his comments on the late President.
The announcement was made by Uztaz Muhammad Sada of the Joint Muslim youth Forum in Katsina. He said that the special prayers would hold throughout Jummaa’t mosques in Katsina state of both the Izala and Darika sects.
Uztaz Sada stated that the prayers were prompted by “the confession made by Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir Elrufai, about his role in the killing of President Umaru Musa.”
Meanwhile, a group known as “Katsina Amalgamated Youth” has threatened to go on protest on Friday if no action is taken by the Federal Government over the statement made by Kaduna state governor on late President Yar’adua.
The group leader, Alhaji Sabiu Tanko Safana, issued the threat in a statement made available on Tuesday, via Bala Abubakar, through KatsinawaJournal.net.
“It’s authoritative that many people in the state are angered by Kaduna state governor’s remarks, and some are insisting that Katsina state governor should appropriately respond to his counterpart’s claim to defend the integrity of one of its illustrious sons,” it added.
Governor El-Rufai was recently quoted in many national dailies to have alleged that when the late President fought him, he went and died.
Shortly before the allegations, Minister Aisha Alhassan was allegedly threatened to expose Governor El-Rufai’s role in Chibok girls’ kidnap, but was immediately disclaimed by the minister as false.
