SOKOTO – A foremost sociocultural and political Renaissance group in Nigeria, the Benin National Congress (BNC) has reached out to the Executive Governor of Sokoto State, Alh. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal over the gruesome killings in the state.
The President of the group, Aiyamekhue Edokpolor commiserates with the governor, the caliphate and the entire people of Sokoto over the mindless assault on the citizens.
Aiyamekhue expressed devastation over the catastrophe, adding that “This is one too many of the pogroms and massacres occurring in debilitating proportions, prompting political scholars to question the political rationale of our federal superstructure if federating units are left asunder during precarious security challenges. We wish to condole with you and pray that the Almighty and Everlasting God will unveil His Omniscience prowess, and expose the unseen actors, while rendering their bodies as meals to the vultures, and their skeletons and souls to the burning fire. Amen.”
The BNC President also urged Tambuwal to “rise above the aura of sobriety and weakness of the spirit by sustaining your good governance advocacies for the overall benefits of not only Sokoto State but also Nigeria.”
Aiyamekhue called on the Federal Government to restore the fast dwindling confidence of Nigerians in her security capabilities by rooting out all agents of terror, else Nigerians may surrender to the United Nations for help.
“Remain strong Your Excellency, even as Sokoto and majority of Nigerians look up to your tenacity at this time. Please, convey the same to all patriots of Sokoto.” he consoles.
