(May his soul rest in Paradise, amim)

During the historic meeting with the Government of Kaduna state and religious leaders of the state at Kaduna Club in Kaduna, who read special prayers and spoke about the issues at hand, which were : the issues of Nigerian Development, Shariah and Religious Freedom, the 3 main religious leaders had these to say.


 


Rev. Fr. Dennis Minihan of the Roman Catholic Church said that "development in every sense of it must include the development of religious freedom and understanding, and we the Roman Catholics want to have the right to propagate our mission and religion freely without restrictions. we therefore appeal to the state government to make sure such environment are created".  In his address, The Chief Imam of Kaduna, Malam Adamu Jibrin Imam said that "Shariah, contrary to the misunderstood view of some people is the comprehensive Islamic law derived form two sources, the Quran and the Sunnah or traditions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). It covers every aspect of daily individual and collective living activity. The purpose of Islamic laws are the protection of individuals' basic human rights to include right to life, property, political and religious freedom and safeguarding the rights of women and protecting the children from abuse. This is also true for minorities and other groups that constitute the larger Community. The Islamic legal system gives choices and allows both Muslim and Christians, and indeed other religions to co-exist side by side with one another. It protects the Freedom of Religion even if one is not a Muslim. For in Islam, there is no compulsion in religion, and we should exercise restraint and allow our Community to develop but economically, socially, democratically and of-course religiously". Finally, Bishop JEL Mort of the Anglican Church said that "I must confess that now that Imam Adamu has enlightened us about Shariah, we will do all that we can to work, pray and stay together in harmony with our Muslims and other Anglican brothers and sisters, and I want to further say that we support the state's commitment to development and religious tolerance and only ask from the state government a fair deal with men, women and children and their affairs.

 

In another development, Chief Imam Adamu call on the leaders of Nigeria to be fair to all. He said "we employ you to exercise restrain and justice in dealing with Muslims and non-Muslims alike. In administering justice, there is no distinction between believers and non-believers, friends and foes, high and low. Allow rights to whomsoever it is due, whether near you or far from you. In this matter, you should be enduring and watchful even though it may involve your relations and favourites, and keep in view the reward of that which appears burdensome on you because its reward is handsome.

Chief Imam Adamu exemplary leadership transcended religious and communities in Kaduna state. He is remembered as a dynamic religious leader with great foresight and vision and as he always said: "Believe in one God and do what is right. First obey Allah's law and then uphold the laws of your land, and the world. Be fair to your wife, your family, your neighbours, friends and to all, say always the truth, watch and guard your conduct, pray to only one God and live as if you will die the next moment and be joyful and thankful to Allah as if you will never die. That is in itself: wisdom and when you are done and died, your records(deeds) shall be placed on your right hand in the hereafter as stated in the Quran 17:17 “One day We shall call together all human beings with their respective Imams (leaders): Those who are given their record intheir right hand will read it (with pleasure), and they will not be dealt with unjustly in the least.” We should avoid at all cost for a situation where our records in the hereafter would be placed on our left hand"


History of Anguwan Liman in Kaduna, Kaduna State of Nigeria (Or called Unguwan Liman or Anguwan Liman Ward)

Anguwan Liman is one of the wards in the city of Zaria, Kaduna state, Nigeria. The ward is located northwards of the Emir of Zazzau's Zaria palace and the ancient central mosque in Zaria, built during the reign of Muhammad Kwasau by the famous Hausa builder Muhammad Gwani. The ward is said to get its name because the famous late Imam (Liman) Adamu Jibrin, the religious scholar and Imam of the central mosque located in Kano Road. Late Liman Adamu Jibrin presided as the chief Imam of Kaduna State for 43 years and lived in Yoruba Road, along Lagos Street. As a result, the wqard got its name "Anguwan Liman".
 
The inhabitants of Auguwan liman like other wards in Zaria city are Hausa speakers who trace their origin to the Barebari (Kanuri) ruling class of Zazzau. Traditional title holders like the late Fagacin Zazzau Adamu, late Sa'in Zazzau and late Chiroman Zazzau are said to come from babban gida (gidan pampo) in Anguwan liman which still serves as the main house where all traditional ceremonies like weddings and naming ceremonies take place.

PEOPLE & POLITICS BY  MOHAMMED HARUNA

A (Brief) History of Kaduna: the City of Crocodiles

Until the late eighties when Kaduna State seemed to have slid into intermittent sectarian and ethnic violence, its capital city, Kaduna, was one of the most peaceful, cosmopolitan and politically important cities in Nigeria. These crises have, however, merely diminished rather than eliminated the city’s virtues, thanks largely to the effective measures the authorities in the state adopted from 2000, the year of the worst crisis, to curb the hostilities in the state.

Established in 1912 by Lord Frederick Lugard, first as a garrison town and then as the regional capital of the then Northern Protectorate, Kaduna soon attracted people of all races, religions and cultures. Within two decades of its establishment, it grew from an almost virgin territory of small scattered settlements of the indigenous population, mostly the Gbagyi, to a town of over 30,000 people. This population comprised the British colonizers, artisans from other West African British colonies, artisans and clerks from the Southern Protectorate as well as labourers and traders from the Hausa, Nupe, Kanuri, Fulani and other tribes in the Northern Protectorate.

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

 

FUTURE OF ICT IN NIGERIA
"Today, Nigerian ICT sector is at the cross roads. The direction we choose will determine not just our future but also the legacy we leave behind for future generations of knowledge workers in this country, who have the creativity to dream impossible dreams and the determination to translate those dreams into reality"...
- Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
