"We Don't Have Emir in C'River Hold Amina Mohammed Responsible for Apology," Alhaji Ado Bayero Replies State Govt

Sariki Garuba Lawan, the leader of the Hausa/Fulani Moslem community in C'River State



Fubara Morris | 27th July 2022



Leaders of the Hausa/ Fulani Moslem Community in Cross River State has dissociated themselves from a viral Facebook post made by one Amina Mohammed during the just concluded Id el Kabir celebration, which addressed Sariki Garuba Lawan, the leader of the Hausa/Fulani Moslem community in C'River State as the Emir of Calabar.


In an exclusive interview with TDN, Alhaji Ado Bayero,  senior special adviser to the governor of Cross River State on trade and industries said the post making the rounds is quite laughable as Amina Mohammed didn't know what she wrote on her Facebook page and called on the government of Cross River State to hold her responsible for her statement as both the Hausa/ Fulani Moslem Community and the Sariki have no relationship with her and her post in whatsoever way.


He further explained, that the lineage of the Sariki dates far back to the last Sariki Bogobiri (Sariki Garba grandfather) down to Sariki 
Lawan, the Sariki's late father, then the Sariki's late brother before Sariki Garba Lawan, the present Sariki and never has there been an Emir of Calabar in the history of Nigeria. The Sariki is only the leader of all the Sariki's across the eighteen local government area in the state, Alhaji Ado Bayero further stated that the Sariki is both recognised by the State government and the Emir of Kano.


Therefore, the Hausa/ Fulani Muslim Community denounce Amina Mohammed's post in its entirety, as they are faithful to their landlords and want the peaceful coexistence between them and the good people of Cross River State to continue and grow stronger than ever.

In his speech, Alhaji Ado Bayero said the Hausa/ Fulani Moslem Community are loyal to the state governor, Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade and the Obong of Calabar, as the governor is the first governor in the history of the state to have more than twenty Moslems as his aides and three Special advisers. Consequently, the government of Cross River State should be demanding a formal apology from Amina Mohammed for her unguarded statements/actions as both the Sariki and Hausa/ Fulani community have no relationship with her.

Recall that the, during the Id el Kabir celebration the Sariki visited the Obong of Calabar at his palace to pay respect to the Obong, as the father of all Calabar and not the Sariki. 
 

TDN had reported how the government of Cross River State reprimanded the Hausa/Fulani Community and demanded a public apology from them.
