The Kano Zone Peace Settlement of the Movement

The Kano Zone Peace Settlement of the Movement

The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H), recently invited Kano stakeholders of the Movement and brockered peace.

To my Foreign Friends, Kano Zone is the largest zone of the Movement.

Some years back Kano zone recorded intractable differences and that was the main reason Sheikh Zakzaky sent the Great Scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Mahmood Turi, to Kano. Sheikh Turi successfully united the Kano zone & united members of the Movement.

After the Martyrdom of Sheikh Turi during the #ZariaGenocide, Dr. Sanusi Abdulkadir Koki was appointed as the head of the Kano zone.

Unity in any struggle is most important. I am an advocate of all kinds of unity. Humanity unity; unity of the Oppressed; Muslim Unity and unity of members of the Movement.

I have some little advice for both parties.

To the dissenting party, Dr. Sanusi Abdulkadir Koki is not Sheikh Muhammad Mahmood Turi. The shoe of Sheikh Turi is far bigger for Dr. Sanusi to wear. In fact Sheikh Turi is irreplaceable. His was an icon of honesty, loyalty, steadfastness and sincerity. Tolerate the shortcomings of Dr. Sanusi Abdulkadir and bury the grudges for the sake of unity. I beg you in the name of God!

To Dr. Sanusi Abdulkadir Koki, leadership of a religious organization is a huge responsibility. And your loyalty should be to Sheikh Zakzaky alone and not to any other person. Not even to his wife. I recently heard some Audio tapes of the unguarded statements that you made against the Iran-based Alwilaya TV and their reply to you. Honestly speaking I was highly disappointed with your false claims.

Dear Dr. Sanusi Abdulkadir Koki, when I returned from medical treatment from Iran in 2018, I traveled to Abuja to meet Activist Deji Adeyanju. One of the issues I met there was that you wanted to sabotage that successful Sit-in campaign in Abuja because it was not your camp that organized it. Deji Adeyanju was a witness to your disruptive actions. If you want to be the accepted leader of members of the Movement in Kano zone and hope to wear the blessed shoes of Sheikh Muhammad Mahmood Turi, you MUST shed the garb of a camp warlord and be a leader loyal to Sheikh Zakzaky alone as only he unite all members of the Movement. I will include you in prayers for you to succeed InshaAllah!

On a final note, one of the reasons of my recent attempt for retirement is to escape the unfortunate infighting in the Movement. I was trained to fight the external enemy only and this is my specialty. The wife of Sheikh Zakzaky has a huge role to play for the unity of the Movement as unfortunately those in her sphere of influence are divisive. My pen will like to remember her as a “Khadija” and not an “Aisha”.
