With less than 24hours to the inauguration of a new government, a Borno state pastor, has urged the president-elect, to try and compensate northern Christians with the position of speaker of the House of Representatives in the 8th National Assembly.
Pastor Kallamu Musa-Dikwa, in a three-page letter dated May 27, Friday, called on Muhammadu Buhari, telling him of the need to have somebody from the north-east to head the House of Representatives.
Dikwa delivered a blow that some members of the All Progressives Congress were plotting against the Christian representatives in the sharing of positions in the National Assembly.
He noted that the Christian community in the north-east were watching the plots of the APC leadership with keen interest.
The letter read: “We have trust and confidence that with you as the President, Northern Christians will be adequately compensated with at least the position of the Speaker.
“We know you to be honest and a just leader and we all look up to you to intervene and save Nigeria from the imminent danger that lies ahead if the APC leaders continue on this path of perdition by ensuring that the South-West does not snatch the speakership from us.”
