Peace: Arewa Monarchs Raise Alarm Over Plots To Undermine Tinubu, Lagos Governor


    By; KATO P. LADAN, Kaduna

    The Council of Arewa Chiefs has called on Lagos State Government to take decisive action against the State Commissioner of Water Resources, Mr. Ahmed Kabiru for plotting to truncate the existing peace between Arewa Community and the people of the state.

    This was contained in a statement signed by Council’s Spokesman, Alhaji Isa Jimeta and made available to newsmen.

    The council said available intelligence has proved that the Commissioner for Water Resources has set aside millions of Naira for a media campaign designed to truncate the recent endorsement of the Sarkin Hausawa of Lagos HRH, Alhaji Aminu Idris Yaro Dogara by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

    The council of monarchs also called on security agents in Lagos State to place the Water Resources Commissioner under surveillance “just in order to preserve the peace being enjoyed by the Arewa Community due to the efforts of the State government and the APC Presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola AhmedTinubu.”

    The Council also expressed worry over “the Water Resources Commissioner working underground to create bad blood between Arewa Community and their neighbors by engineering crisis over the Sarkin Hausawa title, to achieve personal goal of truncating Lagos peace.

    “We urge the Water Resources Commissioner to avoid this dangerous use of influence to undermine prominent Nigerians like the governor of a State in which he is serving and the APC Presidential flagbearer, because the two are not his mates” said the monarchs.

    They then stated: “Peace has been attained by the special grace of God, in the decades of relationship between Arewa Community and their neighbors and we have to appreciate the State Governor for doing the needful and Asiwaju for being highly cooperative as father and guardian of the Arewa Community”.

    It would be recalled that the presidential candidate of the APC set up a committee headed by the Governor of Kano State Abdullahi Ganduje whose committee recommendation he relied upon in recognizing and endorsing relevant leadership of the Arewa Community in Lagos State.

    The Council said the kingmakers fully recognized by the law as the guardians of the entire traditional rulers of the Arewa Community in Lagos include: –

    (1) HRH, Alhaji Aminu Idris Yaro Dogara
    Sarkin Hausawa of Lagos & Chairman Arewa Council of Chiefs Lagos

    (2) HH,Alhaji (Dr) Mohammed Abubakar Bambado II
    Sarkin Fulani of Lagos, Chairman Council of Fulani Chiefs South-West and Vice Chairman Arewa Council of Chiefs Lagos

    (3) HRH,Alhaji Mai Mele Abatcha
    Mai-Kanuribe of Lagos and Chairman kanuri Council of Chiefs Lagos State

    (4) HRH, Sanni Yakubu Ejima
    Onu Igala of Lagos (Ogah Attah Igala)
    Chairman Kogi traditional Rulers Council,Lagos state

    (5) Alhaji Jibrin Magaji

    The Council, in the statement, hailed the traditional rulers for the brilliant work on the laws guiding the monarchy in Arewa Community and urged them not to be distracted by “the dangerous agenda of a Judas inside Governor Sanwo-olu’s government”.
