Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has disclosed that members of “House of Kaduna Family” are ignorant of the crisis facing the people in the state.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai, had two weeks ago inaugurated a 22-member interfaith group, known as ‘House of Kaduna Family’, at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House to find lasting peace in the state, especially in Southern Kaduna.
Members of the group comprise religious leaders as well as political leaders of thought.
But, the spokesman of SOKAPU, Luka Binnyat while featuring on Elombah Television programme: ‘Southern Kaduna Family’, Governor El-rufai’s Solution to the Southern Kaduna Crisis? said most of the members of the panel are not in touch with the people at the grassroots.
“Many of them don’t understand the real problem facing the people of Southern Kaduna”, Binniyat stated.
He described the formation of the Peace Panel to find last solution to the Southern Kaduna crisis as mere academic exercise.
The Spokesman of SOKAPU said, “the House of Kaduna family,” how many of them are really in touch with grassroots. Many of them don’t understand the issue.
“It is a one thing to bring elites and allow them brainstorm academically, and a different thing to really go down and face the issue and bring about the solution and talk about justice and talk about reconciliation and talk about construction, that is the way genuine reconciliation will start.
“You don’t go and bring a Professor, you don’t go and bring clerics, you do not go and bring civil servants and give them a name.”
He added, “We have prominent people among the panel members, some of them have at different times brought succour to some victims of southern kaduna crisis, but there is no official of SOKAPU among the committee members and that is the problem.
“We are not after meeting with Governor El-rufai, we are not looking for his endorsement and we are not desperate to sit down in a round table with him.
“The most important thing is that our people have confidence in us, if he wants, he can form all kinds of so vcalled ‘House of Kaduna’ that is okay, as long as it is going to bring solution to the problem facing our people, but like I keep saying, it is because of the pressure that is being mounted on the man, that is why is making this move.
“We don’t believe that he is sincere with the move, I said so because he has said very bad things against our people, he has denigrated our traditional institutions, he has harassed, captured and put in prison people who criticized his high handedness in Southern kaduna, he has sacked our people from prominent jobs in the civil service.
“he has carried out projects in other parts of the state to spite us, anybody that wants peace as a leader has to start working on the psychology of the people so that they will know that whatever thing you are doing is coming from your heart.
“He is again carrying a time bomb in his hand, the 1992 Zango Kataf issue that has has been put to rest, he has dug it up and says, he is going to produce a white paper on it , any leader that wants peace will stay away from the issue of Zango kataf because the people of zango kataf had managed their crisis and found understanding with their Hausa settlers in the area.”
