The Nasarawa state Governor, Abdullahi Sule has explained why he went to the church to do thanksgiving despite being a Muslim.
The Governor who disclosed that in 2019, he went to a church and held a thanksgiving service after he emerged as the state Governor said he did that because he attended Roman Catholic Mission ( RCM ) Primary School, Gudi in 1968.
He added that his administration believes everyone regardless of their faith and religious beliefs needs to work together in peace and unity to achieve the needed development in the state.
Governor Sule spoke at the commissioning/dedication of Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ (ERCC) ultra-modern headquarters secretariat along Keffi road Alushi, Akwanga LGA of the state where he was represented by his special adviser on youths and sports, Mr. Kwanta Yakubu.
The Governor praised the ERCC for its many contributions to youth development, health, education and peace in the state through various programmes and projects.
He added that his government recognizes the roles been played by such faith-based organizations and would continue to partner with them to move Nasarawa state forward.
Mr. Kwanta Yakubu donated N5m at the event.
Meanwhile, sociopolitical activist Aisha Yusufu has called on #EndSARS protesters across the country not to relent or be distracted in their call for a reformation of the Nigeria Police.
Recall that Nigerians have taken to the streets to protest extrajudicial killings and brutality by the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Following pressure from protesters the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, disbanded SARS and announced the formation of a new unit called Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team.
Unsatisfied with the IGP’s actions so far Nigerians on social media began another advocacy using #EndSWAT as a replacement for #EndSARS which was the number one trend globally for more than 48 hours.
