In a fashion that many have described as not too surprising, Kano State Gas Pipeline Project Delivery and Gas Industrialisation Committee, Chairman, Muaz Magaji, has celebrated the victory of the Taliban terrorist group in Afghanistan; a group that was equally prayed for by Nigeria’s current Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.
Magaji, who was first sacked for celebrating the death of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, and later reappointed to his current position, described unfolding developments in Afghanistan as a win-win.
In a manner not dissimilar from minister of communications and digital economy, Isa Pantami, who openly declared support for the terrorist group, Mr Magaji said the Taliban taking over power in Afghanistan is a “win.”
In one of his vicious sermons in the 2000s, Mr Pantami had prayed, saying:
This jihad is an obligation for every single believer, especially in Nigeria… Oh God, give victory to the Taliban and to al-Qaeda (Allahumma’ nṣur Ṭālibān wa-tanẓīm al Qā‘ida).
Reacting to a story in the Daily New Hausa, announcing the Taliban government in Afghanistan, Mr Magaji said “It’s a WIN- WIN in Afghanistan today!”
Mr Magaji becomes the second government official among members of the ruling All Progressive Congress party who will openly declare support and endorse a terrorist group.
Taliban fighters entered the city of Kabul on Sunday, hijacked power, forcing President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani to flee the country.
In the meantime, Nigerians who are closely following the developments in Afghanistan have stated the what is going on in the Middle-East country is an example of what is about to happen in Nigeria, following the onslaught of the Boko Haram terrorist group and the support it has enjoyed from the elites in northern Nigeria.
They, therefore, called for the dissolution of the south from the north in order no to be part of the blood shed when that time arrives.
