Islamic group sends message to federal lawmakers, others

Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to the Zamfara State House of Assembly’s decision to scrap payment of pensions and other allowances.

Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement on Friday, November 29,2019 called for a total and comprehensive abolition of all arbitrary payments to past political office holders in the country.

The statement read: “There are several past governors in Senate who are earning mouth-watering allowances from the red chamber and still earning pension and allowances from their states as former governors.”

“This is atrocious, selfish and greedy. How can Nigeria come out of its financial mess if our leaders continue to behave like this? MURIC throws this challenge to all former this and former that. The challenge goes to those who are currently in Senate and the House of Representatives. We want to know those who are ready to identify with the poor masses.”

“We remind our lawmakers and holders of public offices, past and present, that if the Nigerian system is so loose that they feel so comfortable, the system of heaven is different. Islamic eschatological tenets affirm that all of them will render account one day before the King of Kings and Master of all masters.”
