“The president said that if there are issues that are not as they ought to be, they were not definitely deliberate.”
President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday reiterated the commitment of his administration to be fair and just to all Nigerian irrespective of religious and ethnic affiliation.
The president said this in Abuja when he met in closed-door with a delegation of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA.
The delegation was led by its leader, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, and the Secretary General of the council, Ishaq Oloyede.
Mr. Oloyede, a professor, who spoke to State House correspondents after the meeting, said the president had told them that the administration did not “deliberately marginalised” the Muslims as reported in the media.
