The Southeast Muslims of Nigeria (SEMON) has commended President Muhamadu Buhari for appointing Christians of the North into positions of trust, adding that the appointments of Boss Gida Mustapha from Adamawa as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Edward Lametek Adamu from Gombe state proved that he belongs to all Nigerians.
The group also conducted a special prayer session for the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria during a special meeting held in Kubwa, Abuja last weekend.
A statement signed by the chairman and secretary of SEMON, Muhammad Obiahu Ajah and Abdurrahman Sidiq Urama respectively lauded President Buhari for doing his best to fulfill his promises to Nigerians and for appointing seasoned and trustworthy Nigerians as the SGF and deputy governor of the CBN, among other
appointments made in consideration of the multi-religious nature of Nigeria.
“The appointment of Alhaji Boss Mustapha as SGF is a testimony that our President means well for the country. These appointments are well deserved. The appointees are Nigerians, though they are from the minorities of the states. The President has proven that all Nigerians are his subjects. This is real democracy. This government means well for the country. We appeal to those who are bent on distracting the government to give peace a chance. We are sure that the government is working and requires concentration to deliver all its promises to our people.”
“We will continue to pray for Nigeria. We seek President Buhari to involve us in government activities to contribute our own quota in any form that is required to add value to good governance.”
