…Praises El-Rufai for a ‘renewed fight against bandits’
by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
The Paramount Ruler of Kurama Chiefdom, His Royal Highness Yakubu Sauri, has said “There is nothing to compare with peace in our socio-economic way of life.”
Sauri stated this at the weekend, while he was Special Guest during the swearing-in ceremony of the Youth Wing of the Federated Kurama Association (FKA) officials in Yarkasuwa, Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Mr. Sauri, who is Bugwam Kurmi III, reiterated the need for the various ethnic nationalities domiciled in Lere local government to ensure peaceful coexistence is achieved in the LGA.
He asserted that, “No tribe is an island, and the coming together of different tribes living in peace will bring about economic vibrancy that will attract development,” and praised the administration of Mallam Nasir El-Rufai as the Executive Governor of Kaduna over his urban renewal project, despite insecurity challenges.
He said, “Mallam Nasir remains a leader to reckon with in the annals of Kaduna history whose glaring passion to serve humanity is undoubtedly evident.”
Sauri enjoined the people of the state to pray for the administration of Nasir and called for support from all well-meaning Sons and Daughters of the state that can give moral backups to give much more in his efforts to serve humanity.
While calling on the newly-elected youth leaders of FKA to give a selfless service that will bring about unity of purpose among the Kurama nation and the various tribes in the LG, the Kurama Paramount Ruler said “The leadership is God’s design and the leader should consider that as His work in which He called them to do.”
While administering an oath of office to swear-in the new officials, Barr Yusuf Yakubu charged them to be cautious of violating the oath of office, as it’s against the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He said oath-taking is a serious matter in the Nigerian constitution and the expectation is that, all sworn-in officials are to give their best by adhering to the bye-laws of FKA.
The FKA President, Mr. Dauda Barau, who was in attendance during the swearing-in ceremony, charged the new officials to serve with diligence and commit themselves to selfless service.
Mr. Barau motivated them, saying, “Service to humanity is service to God,” adding that, they should consider themselves privileged to be chosen by people to serve them.
In his response, the newly sworn-in Youth Leader, Mr. Bitrus (Peter) Garba, said he accepted to serve the people of Kurama in the capacity of a Youth Coordinator, “with joy and happiness.”
