The Nigeria Association of Teachers of Arabic and Islamic Studies (NATAIS) has advised politicians to play politics with decorum to ensure sustenance of democracy and safety of lives and property of Nigerians.

The National President of the association, Prof. Sani Musa and the Secretary, Dr Abubakar Hassan gave the advice in a communiqué they signed in Abuja on Wednesday.

The communiqué came at the end of the association National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.

The association said that tensions and challenges caused by politicians were threatening the corporate existence of Nigeria as a nation.

According to the group, politicians must ensure that the unity among different ethnic tribes and faiths in the country are sustained before, during and after election.

The association also enjoined government at all levels to make the welfare of Nigerians a priority in order to ameliorate the hardship experienced by the citizens.

“State Governments that are not paying salaries should as a matter of urgency, pay all the entitlements of workers in order to address the challenges of poverty.

“Also, efforts of the Federal Government in fighting corruption should be intensified to cut across all sectors.” (NAN)
