51 years after the passing away of the Premier, Northern Region and Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, a Kaduna-based clergy, Pastor Yohanna Buru, has bemoaned the death of the late legend’s legacies and implored his beneficiaries to rise up to the challenge of resuscitating them.
The clergy expressed the sorrow with a call on the disciples of Sardauna and federal government to inject lives into those establishments when he visited the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Kaduna State secretariat to fraternise with members.
He sorrowfully identified the legacies of Sardauna to include the defunct media out fits like New Nigerian Newspapers, Gaskiya Tafikwobo, the limping Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Kaduna and of course the ‘stage managed’ peace and unity in the state.
Pastor Buru, who is the Overseer of Christ Evangelical and Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, lamented that if Sardauna was alive, he would not have allowed the situation to go the way it is with these establishments.
While calling on his disciples and beneficiaries to ensure that the legacies, particularly, the New Nigerian Newspapers and FRCN are reactivated, he warned that if the late premier should come back to life he will weep and canes many northerners out of anger for betraying him.
Though he noted that both the New Nigerian and Radio Kaduna have since taken over by the federal government, he opined that it is imperative for the political class, the wealthy individuals in the north to contribute to their survival and efficiency in order to upholding the foresight of the late Sardauna.
