Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, a renowned Islamic scholar and a leading figure in the Tijaniyya sect, has advised the Nigerian government to end the unrest in the country.
“The protesters should stop it, because if the situation continues like this, everything will be ruined and the despised peace will be lost,” he said.
He added: “We urge the government to respect the rights of the people. We hope that there will be people who will tell the truth. It should not be allowed to go on like this. It will not lead to violence.”
“Water is to extinguish fire. It is good that the government listens to the complaints of the people and meets their needs.
The government has an ear and an eye, and it knows what is bothering the community of oppression, hunger, unemployment, high cost of living and insecurity.
“Therefore, the government should try to respond to the grievances of the people and find a solution”
