Please recognise us, Enugu indigenous Muslims beg Ugwuanyi

ENUGU – MUSLIM community in Enugu North senatorial districts, Thursday called on governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to recognise and include them in the affairs of governance.


The leader of the Muslim community, Alhaji Sani-Muhammed Ugwuanyi, who made this call during an interview in his residence at Nsukka, few days after Sallah celebration, commended Ugwuanyi for his commitment in delivering good governance.

Amir Ugwuanyi also pleaded with governor Ugwuanyi to activate his earlier appointment of the Muslim leader as a Board Member in the State.

According to him, the governor had appointed him as State Board member when he visited Igbo-Eze South Local Government Area, the Muslim leader’s council area, on December 23, 2019 for governorship campaign, on grounds that he was “bigger than my earlier appointment as Executive Assistant (EA)”.

He disclosed that Enugu indigenous Muslims immensely supported the governor’s election and re-election projects and attended all his campaigns during the 2019 election process because of their belief in him. But according to him, he had not seen or heard anything about either EA or Board appointment since Ugwuanyi’s, alleged, proclamation.

The Muslim leader, who commended the governor for his good works in the State since he assumed office in 2015, adding that, “he is performing; Governor Ugwuanyi is doing very well, no doubt about that,” also stressed that even though he would like the governor to activate the board appointment, but that he was more concerned about many of their indigenous members who were graduates but jobless.

“The issue is that in as much I want the hardworking governor to make true my appointment, I am more concerned about our children – Igbo Muslims of Enugu State extraction – young graduates but without jobs. We appeal to Governor Ugwuanyi to recognize us, our leaders and our children, and carry us along” he pleaded.

He however, lamented the alleged outrageous mismanagement of the affairs of the State’s Muslims Pilgrims Board (MPB) and called for the governor’s quick intervention to put the house in order. He noted that he had received several complaints from different quarters, and as well expressed dissatisfaction and lack of confidence on the present leadership of the board.

While stressing on the rising insecurity in the country, Amir Ugwuanyi, declared that the government knew the solution to the problem, saying that, “government, right from the central down the line, knows what to do to exterminate the problem or at least, drastically reduce it. Take it from me, they know what to do, no need stressing on it,” he insisted.

On herdsmen-related security challenges in the State, Amir Ugwuanyi stated that the Muslim community had a representative, in the person of Alhaji Yusuf Sambo, who he said was handling the matter, in partnership with the government, expressing hope that the situation would soon be over.

He commended Governor Ugwuanyi for his proactive, humble and peaceful manner of handling sensitive challenges and overall government architecture, and declared full confidence of the Muslim community in the governor.

This has sinister motives written all over it.

It may even be an outright fake news, because the substance of the news makes no sense ... except if you are pushing an agenda - a FULANIZATION AND ISLAMIZATION agenda.

All these were very predictable before now, and the proof is THIS ARTICLE written June 23, 2019 -almost TWO months earlier.

Some questions would suffice at this stage.
Next ...

Preamble to the first question, is the fact that there has always been few (almost infinitesimal compared to the rest of the population) Igbo Muslims in Nigeria. I don't think there are up to 1000 IGBO Muslims anywhere on earth. Whoever has a record to the contrary should come here to prove me wrong. Keep in mind that there are at least 40 million Igbos worldwide, about 30 million of which are always in Igboland. Now you understand why 1000 is infinitesimal in this context.

But that is besides the point.

The point is that these people now demanding to be recognized as "indigenous Muslims in Igboland", NEVER made any public statement, before now, for instance to condemn the activities of herdsmen in Enugu state. Afterall they are Enugu indigenes, right?
They never said anything... until now when they want to be "recognized" in Enugu state, as if anyone ever denied them of being Igbo.

NOBODY would ever stop an Igbo person from being Igbo. That has never happened, and would never happen, because Igbo people have STRONG bonds to the lands of their ancestors -Igboland.

No governor, president, or anyone otherwise howsoever can stop an Igbo person from being Igbo.

So, for this group to be demanding to be recognized as "indigenous" means that they are NOT IGBO in the first place! That is the simple logical conclusion from what they are saying and demanding.

Few Igbo Muslims that exist simply practice their religion as they want freely without let or hindrance, but they never demand to be given recognition or special treatment by state government as MUSLIMS.
Enugu state indigenes are all entitled by right to be appointed to any position for which they qualify regardless of their religion. Enugu has always appointed people based on competence, NOT religion.
That is how it has always been!

The people that make such demands in Nigeria are known, and they usually come from the North.
They demand free land for markets, positions, mosques, recognition, and yes RUGA. Those making this demand are setting the grounds for RUGA. It is always about RUGA (Fulanization) and nothing to do with Igbo Muslims.

For years, not a few of Nigerians (mainly southerners) were ashamed that illiterates from a section of the country(north) are lording it over Ivy League educated and trained southerners, Igbos inclusive.
But such was possible because the people trusted that such trusted people would not do any harm to them or the country.
However, with the raping and murder of people in southern Nigeria now by these same people, such trust has died a natural death.
Now, let us see how illiterates would deceive world-class brains again.
Ndi ara.  :))

Behind these articles, this evil kind of article - there is a demon...

Logically, how is it possible for me to go to "my village" and be begging to be recognized?

Sham! Scam! Deceit! Evil!

Ah ah!
