South-south, South-east JNI leader preaches peace

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Vic­tor Edozie, P/Har­court

Vice Pres­i­dent of South­south and South-east Jama’atu Nas­ril Is­lam (JNI), Al­haji Abubarkar Orlu, has urged Mus­lims to em­brace peace and love one an­other .

He also urged the present ad­min­is­tra­tion to re­struc­ture the coun­try to give ev­ery­body a sense of be­long­ing.

Al­haji Orlu spoke in an in­ter­view with Daily Trust in Port Har­court yes­ter­day.

He ex­pressed dis­plea­sure over the way Nige­ri­ans are ‘po­larised along re­li­gious and po­lit­i­cal di­vides.’

He said, “I want to use this pe­riod to ad­vise Mus­lims to leave peace­fully with their Chris­tian brothers. I ap­peal to Mus­lim lead­ers to come to­gether and find so­lu­tion to Nige­ria’s prob­lem so that there will be peace among the peo­ple. Nige­ria is not united. Nige­ria as a coun­try can be re­struc­tured. With­out re­struc­tur­ing the coun­try, we will find it dif­fi­cult to live in peace. The present ad­min­is­tra­tion should try as much as pos­si­ble to unite all Nige­ri­ans so that piece will reign.”
