WARRI—MUSLIM leaders in the South-South region have expressed concern that entrepreneurs were moving their industries from Nigeria to other African countries, especially to Ghana, because of poor power supply in the region and urged the Federal Government to quickly address the drift.
The Muslim leaders, who met under the auspices of South-South Muslim Leaders Forum, in Warri, Delta State, also called on President Goodluck Jonathan to appoint Muslims from the zone into the federal cabinet, boards of federal parasatals and other relevant institutions.
In a communiqué by its Chairman and Secretary, Alhaji Mumakai Unagha and Alhaji Isa Enebong, they lamented the apathy of some state governors to Muslims in the zone.
They called on them to integrate Muslims of the zone into the state and local polity to justify their religious equality as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
On the strike action by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the forum said the Federal Government should fulfill the agreement reached with the union “to ensure that our children return to school.”
