The Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’ikamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS) has reminded the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari on the need to fulfill campaign promises.
The National Chairman Ulama Council, Sheikh Muhammad Sani Yahaya Jingir stated this during the matriculation ceremony of about 105 new students of Sahlan School of Health Technology in Jos.
He noted that “APC and Buhari have promised to focus on agriculture, rehabilitation and construction of new roads, sanitizing education sector and also promised to give N5,000 to unemployed, but so far there is nothing to write home about.
“They said if we voted for them, they promised to improve agriculture, roads, education and pay N5,000 to unemployed youths and so far they didn’t deliver.”
Sheik reminded Buhari and APC that time awaits no one, “therefore do work that would make you to win the hearts of people and to leave a legacy that you would be proud of.”
He commended Buhari for the fight against insecurity and corruption, urging the president to use the recovered funds from looters to improve the economy and to better the lives of the Nigerian masses.
“PDP came to us with millions but we didn’t collect it, in fact we contributed our money for Buhari to fund his campaign. We have done our part, we are waiting for Buhari to do his. And he needs to do it fast“ , he said.
In his address, the Director of the school, Muhammed Shafiu said he was motivated to establish the school by the sheikh.
He commended the role played by the Provost of School of Health Technology Zawan, Mr Tona Reng for accepting to affiliate with the school.
On the role played by the special Assistant to the president on Assembly Matters, Abdulrahman Kawu, the provost described him as a bulldozer who contributed immensely to the development of the school.
