President and Founder of the Governors Assembly in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, Northwest of the country, Pastor Gideon Mutum has stressed the need for an urgent National Confab that would help address the problems of the region, especially, the incessant killings in Southern Kaduna and other states.
The Cleric made the suggestion in an interview with newsmen in Kafanchan on the reoccurring incident of killings in Southern Kaduna .
Mutum was of the opinion that if there was anything Southern Kaduna need to address the lingering issues that has bedevilled the region is to organise a National Confab that would help expose some certain issues and to proffer a lasting solution
According to him, a delegation of all the tribes in Southern Kaduna need to be part of the National confab, adding that the Hausa Fulani delegation need to be involved.
He explained that having the delegation of the Hausa Fulani in the National confab would help address some certain narratives that are peddling within their quarters.
” Let us not fold our alms and pretend as if there are no problems, looking at the recent revelations of some issues that are arising from different quarters, to the best of my knowledge the national conference would cushion the lingering issues”‘ he observed.
While commenting on the existence of Hausa Fulani in the Southern Kaduna, Mutum said the Fulani settlements in the region are still standing untouchable.
” For someone to say that the Southern Kaduna People don’t want anybody to stay within our boundaries, it’s a blatant lies,” the Cleric said.
Mutum disclosed that there is no Chiefdom in Southern Kaduna that does not have a Hausa Fulani person that is ruling only but a few.
