Government of Kano.  follow the blasphemy case to the logical conclusion – Ganduje

By Zubairu Idris

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State said his administration would follow the blasphemy case involving Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasiru-Kabara to the logical conclusion.

He explained the government’s position when he visited Sallah with the leader of the Qadiriyya movement, Sheikh Khalifa Qaribullahi Nasiru-Kabara at Qadiriyya House, Kano.

The governor’s chief press secretary, Malam Abba Anwar, revealed this in a statement Friday in Kano.

“We are very grateful that we took the right steps to deal with the situation.

“And the state government will continue to monitor the situation very well, until its logical conclusion,” said the governor, as quoted by Anwar.

Ganduje praised the cleric and other scholars for the role they played in the debate.

“We congratulate you on the role you have played; it is indeed astonishing that Islamic scholars have done well during the debate.

“They showed real Islamic knowledge,” Ganduje said.

The governor also pledged to help complete the Sheikh Nasiru Kabara Islamic Center in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Earlier in his remarks, Khalifa Nasiru Kabara praised the governor for the role he played in protecting the dignity of the Prophet Muhammad.

“We are all proud of the excellent work done, may Allah reward you,” he said.

He also thanked the governor for the visit which he had made an annual event.

It will be recalled that the Kano state government took Sheikh Abduljabbar to a higher Sharia court for alleged blasphemy and incitement.

The court adjourned the case until July 28 and ordered the accused clergyman to be remanded in custody. (NAN) ()
