Matawalle promises hard time for those desecrating the Qur’an

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has called on the people of the state, especially Muslims, to pray to Allah to bring his wrath on those abusing the Holy Qur’an.

Matawalle made the call on Monday in Gusau at the opening of the state chapter of the 2019 Qur’anic recitation competition, Musabaka.

“This prayer is necessary because the perpetrators are committing a high level of immorality and their provocation and sin can cause a lot of problem to us as citizens; so we should pray so that Allah’s punishment will not affect the innocent.

“At our level as a government, I have set up an investigative committee and anyone found to have had a hand in it — however highly placed in the society — will be punished as prescribed by the Islamic law,” he said.

The governor warned that his administration would not condone any form of unwholesome act in the state and directed security agents to be more vigilant in order to bring people behind such acts to book.

Speaking on the Qur’anic recitation competition, Matawalle said the state government had set up a credible organising committee and had given the members adequate logistics for a smooth and successful outing.

He urged members of the committee to be fair in the discharge of the responsibility.

Earlier in his address, the Chairman of the Organising Committee, Aminu Nahuche, represented by one of the committee members, Alhaji Muhammad Dodo, said the committee would do its best through the panel of judges to see that the best reciters that could also represent the country emerge.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the event which started throughout the 14 local government areas in October, brought out winners who are participating at the state level and who will also represent the state at the national level in the 2020 edition of the competition.
