Gubernatorial aspirant in the 2019 general election in Kaduna state and former Group Head Human Resources of Dangote Group, Shuaibu Idris Miqati, has offered to broker peace in the Labour and Kaduna State government faceoff.
In a statement he personally signed, Miqati said his decision is out of concern on the suffering of the people.
“My little understanding of the issues, my knowledge and experience of Human Resources management having served as Group Head Human Resources of Dangote Group and a member of Chartered Institute of Personel Management of Nigeria. Indeed, having being a labourer for years my self, I can feel the pains and concerns of Labour. Also having managed businesses, and as finance expert, a chartered Accountant, I can also feel and see the views of the State Government in this saga.
“During the period of my career as Human Resources practitioner I had cause to relate with Labour leaders and we had excellent relationship to the extent that contentious issues were resolved amicably to the satisfaction of parties involved then.
“It is these experiences I offered to bring to bare and share with the parties in our dear state as a patriotic citizen,” Miqati said adding that he has reached out already to few like minds who can be part of the team to broker peace amongst parties to the disagreement.
“Once again I request the understanding of all parties so that lasting peace and harmony can be entrenched and sustained in our State. Let us not exacerbate the situation in our dear state since it is either peace to all or peace to none! A stitch in time saves nine, ” Miqati added.
