According to the statement, there is no single Muslim beneficiary in the list.
“To many Muslims and Fulani leaders dismay, when the list of beneficiaries was unveiled by the Plateau state government, there is no single Muslim beneficiary in the list.
The Plateau State chapter of Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, has alleged exclusion in the selection of beneficiaries of the N500 million palliative donation by the First Lady, Remi Tinubu.
While raising questions on the sincerity of the Plateau State government towards providing a lasting solution to the crisis in the state, the JNI alleged partiality in compiling the list of the beneficiaries.
“Many Islamic leaders as well as Fulani herdsmen express displeasures and disappointment over an outright exclusion of Muslims, and lopsided nature of the list of 500 families that were victims of the recent round of crisis in five local government areas of Plateau state.
