Kaduna State Council of Imams and Ulama has asked Governor Nasir El-Rufai not to assent to the Burial Bill passed by the State House of Assembly.

The council, in a communiqué issued after its general meeting in Kaduna yesterday, stated signed by its secretary, Yusuf Yakubu Arrigasiyyu and chairman, Shaykh Ibrahim Nakaka, said the bill was not in conformity with the teachings of the Holy Prophet.

The bill provides, among other things, that “the birth of a child and person shall be registered by the registrar of births and deaths of the local government area and that immediately upon registering any death or receiving information of birth of any still born child, the registrar shall issue a certificate in form A of schedule to the law for the burial of the body.”

The council also urged an end to the crises in Kajuru and other parts of Kaduna State.
