Ogun Hausa community warns members to steer clear of violence

Following agitations by various ethnic groups, the Arewa (Hausa) community in Ogun State has warned its members in the state to steer clear of violence against other tribes.

 The Interim Chairman of the community in the  state, Alhaji Shehu Usman Sampam, stated this on Sunday in Sagamu during an interactive meeting with  the Arewa leaders from all the local governments in the state.

 Sampam said the meeting with leaders of the community in all the local governments became imperative following the current state of the nation, saying the Hausa community in the state has been enjoying peaceful co-existence with their hosts.
 He said, “We are gathered here to let our people know the importance of living in peace. We should live in peace with the people we live together with and in where we do our businesses.”
 He commended the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, who he said gave them the opportunities to enjoy peace in the state.
 He said, “The Arewa community in the state has been living in harmony and peacefully and the governor has given us free opportunities to do our businesses without any hindrance. We thank him and urge him to keep up what he is doing in Ogun State.”
 On the 2019 election in the state, the Arewa urged the people to obtain their permanent voter cards. He appealed to the state government to include the Hausa community members in the state in the scheme of things, especially at the local government level.
