The Mwari Youth forum in Bogoro Local Government of Bauchi State has refuted a complaint on the alleged security threat On the upcoming 21st anniversary of the death of the late Sayawa nation crusader, Baba Peter Gonto file by the member representing Dass, Tafawa Balewa and Bogoro Federal constituency Hon Yakubu Dogara to the inspector general of Police.
This was stated in a press briefing at the NUJ Secretariat by Pastor Isuwa Sama’ila on behalf of Mwari Youth, which according to them the complaint by the former Speaker is not true.
Isuwa Sama’ila said the complaint was said to be “alleged That unless planned reception in honour of the Zaar sage, Baba Peter Gonto is put on hold, there may be a very serious breach of the peace. The author further argued that he has worked hard to restore peace to the area, that he is so concerned about any activity that is to reverse the peace enjoyed in the area.
According to Isuwa the people of Mwari completely supports the reception in honour of their grandfather, Late Baba Peter Gonto and interact closely with youths within our neighbourhood, there is no unanimity that the reception should go on.
He added that Late Sage, Baba Peter Gonto was a political leader, a devoted religious leader, a pacesetter in Sayawa land, whose ideals were to propagate the message of peace and unity amongst his people, so no amount of honour that would be given to him will be too much. Moreover, the Late Baba Gonto was a father to every Zaar man who was an architect of unity among the Zaar people and our neighbours, he was further the beacon of hope and light.
He expressed surprise at the development saying that any Zaar man would have the courage and audacity to oppose a reception in honour of this legend; we are much more surprised that Rt. Hon. Dogara Yakubu who is an In-law to Mwari would want to oppose a reception in honour of this great man.
Isuwa Samaila stated that in a clear and loud voice the youths in Mwari are in support of the event, and actively involved in all the events, no one should deceive the world that we are not in support of the event.
