2019: Sanusi advocates signing of peace pact by political parties

EMIR of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II has advocated the signing of a peace pact by all political parties ahead 2019 general elections.

Sanusi spoke yesterday in Katsina at a lecture; “Youth Security and National Development of Nigeria”, organized by Katsina vocational Training Centre.

He said signing of a peace pact is necessary to ensure Peaceful conduct of the election for sustenance of democracy.

Sanusi noted that such a pact will discourage the use of the youths by politicians to foment trouble and violence during the election.

The Emir accused some politicians in the north of using religion to divide people and achieve political and selfish interests.

He said religion should not be used for political campaign, warning that politicians should allow religion in the hand of religious leaders.

On problem facing the north, Sanusi lamented that the region is now the poorest in Nigeria with no focus to compete with its southern counterparts.

He said the bulk of poorest people in Nigeria are concentrated in Northern Nigeria due to failure by the leaders to give priority to Education for the youth.

He urged Northern leaders as a matter of urgency to find solution to the problems facing the region so as to move it forward.

“We must all rise to the occasion and give back to our society through our various talents by making practical suggestions on how best we could overcome our multifaceted problem in the north”.

Earlier in his speech, Chairman of the occasion Chief Judge of Katsina State, Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar said Katsina Vocational Centre was established by Late M.D Yusuf to train unemployed youths as part of an effort to touch humanity.

Abubakar said the centre has trained over 15,000 unemployed youths and provided them with kits and cash assistance to set up businesses.
