Shortly after his presentation at the conference by the National Association of Nigerian Students Joint Campus Committee in Kaduna tagged, "Ensuring Peace and Security, Generating News Ideas for Jobs Creation and Sustainable Development", Dr. Abdullahi Danladi was swarmed by contingent of pressmen, full of questions which he answered.
Responding to the conflict situation in the country, Dr. Danladi explained that, Nigeria has alot of lessons to learn from the Rwandan genocide of 1994. He was making reference to a speaker at the occasion who oulined characteristics of the conflict situation in Rwanda before the genocide, evident now in Nigeria.
He pointed out that, the division along ethnic and religious lines of Nigerians would not augur well for the country, adding that Nigerians should learn from their differences rather than distance themselves from each other.
According to him, Nigerians should know that they are all subserviant to their Creator and should therefore be their brothers keepers for good and for bad. He said, the pointers that characterized the Rwandan crisis are on ground in Nigeria, addig that Nigerians should not be deluded into plunging the country into anarchy.
Asked on the abduction of school girls in Chibok, Dr. Danladi said Nigerian government is acting a ready-made script by their masters, adding that, "It has now become glaringly obvious that those fighting terrorism masterminded the September 11 attack, so as to give Islam and Muslims a bad name. Thesame people are dictating the tune in Nigeria, associating Islam and Muslims with terrorism", he said.
He further said, history has proved that Islam is a peaceful religion, and therefore no acts of violence can be asociated with it or its adherents.
