Summary: ‘The bravest among men is he who embraces his fate and accepts his destiny without grudges even if it is an Infamous Act’. (Muhammad Sule) The philosophy of the above quoted wordings of Muhammad Sule is digested in a short story of a boy who early in the morning rode his bicycle to school, to his surprise, as he approached the gate of the collage he saw his new principal standing. He parked his bicycle, carried his bag and put his small cap on his head. The principal called the boy who came and knelt down before him. Why your cap is too small? The principal asked. The boy kept silent to admit the assertion, as he could not explain the reason why, coupled with the fact that, that man is a new principal. Would he accept excuses? Would he agree to listen to his students honorably without abusing or shouting at them unlike many principals? The boy contemplated. What is your name? Which class are you? The principal asked. The boy said his name and the class. And the principal used his pen to jot it down. You must change this cap and come to my office tomorrow to confirm me that you get new one. The principal ordered. Ok sir. the boy answered.

‘The bravest among men is he who embraces his fate and accepts his destiny without grudges even if it is an Infamous Act’. (Muhammad Sule)
The philosophy of the above quoted wordings of Muhammad Sule is digested in a short story of a boy who early in the morning rode his bicycle to school, to his surprise, as he approached the gate of the collage he saw his new principal standing. He parked his bicycle, carried his bag and put his small cap on his head. The principal called the boy who came and knelt down before him. Why your cap is too small? The principal asked. The boy kept silent to admit the assertion, as he could not explain the reason why, coupled with the fact that, that man is a new principal. Would he accept excuses? Would he agree to listen to his students honorably without abusing or shouting at them unlike many principals? The boy contemplated.  What is your name? Which class are you? The principal asked.  The boy said his name and the class. And the principal used his pen to jot it down. You must change this cap and come to my office tomorrow to confirm me that you get new one. The principal ordered. Ok sir. the boy answered.
For two to three days the boy went to the principal office but he could not have access to him. This left a scar in his mind that, the principal was either pretending to jot down his name or not taking some issue of students discipline serious.
Not so long when rumor was spread in the collage, that one non Muslim teacher allergy threw Qur’an away in an indifferent manner. This led the senior students to mobilize other students to protest within the school which almost to cause a violent riot.  The boy was overwhelmed with surprise when he saw the principal calling the students and within no time all the students gathered at Assembly Ground and calmed down. There was absolute silent and the principal started addressing the students and he was able to convince them with very good command of language where he exhibited his charisma of convincing people mind,  that is how the intended violent riot in Rumfa collage ended without bloodshed,
That was Malam shekarau before whom I knelt down not knowing he will one time become my governor and he too did not know that he was asking a barrister and solicitor of the supreme court of Nigeria, why is your cap too small?
Would the governor of Kano state embrace the fate of his government and accepts its destiny without grudges, for lack of follow up and non penalization that it originated from the above historical back ground of the principal’s attitude where he reluctantly failed follow up to see whether the boy abided by his instruction or not, neither did he find out the master minded of the riot, nor did the offence was investigated talkless of any penalty inflicted on the offenders.
Would government of Kano state embrace its fate and accept its destiny for lack of follow up when huge amount of our money was spent in water project and  candidly told us that mun yiwa ruwa dibar karan mahaukaciya (i.e we overcome shortage of  water in totality)  while  contrarily, at the so called conclusion of the project the  government eventually found  out the statement was wrong as a result of lack of follow up and rejected same, by saying the project is not sufficient to tackle the shortage of water considering the population of Kano. Going by this would it be said that ruwa ya yi muku diban karan mahauk ciya  
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny for non inflicting penalties on culprits, when The Kano state House of Assembly in their effort to observe rule of law found one of the commissioner guilty for mismanagement as such not fit to continue occupying such sit, after too much pressure the governor removed him but reappoint him for another position, as a reward for mismanagement.

Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny for setting bad example when Kano state House of Assembly found most of local government mismanaged “the people’s money” and the house in their effort to emulate the governor, could only west the people’s  money in  printing the report leaving the chairmen go court free with pride.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by becoming negligent when many serious things happened in the absence of the so called  knowledge of government  and the governor could only heard about it,  when it  almost ended or not even aware of it at all. For example the issue of one hundred million naira in which one of the stakeholders in Kano state government allegedly implicated an innocent director of Freedom Radio Kano and his excellence was only aware when the issue turned to a media war.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by becoming grudger when one of the senior staff of one of the Kano state media house was transferred to another place only for the simple reason of coordinating political program of the then Dr, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso government.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by becoming blind on how one of the chairmen of a board allegedly spends money anyhow, given lavish gifts to politicians and giving tickets to hajj, which his allowance can’t justify.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by making new political appointments without complying with at least 30% of sharia requirements which the government claimed to implement.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by listening to the voice of Abraham Lincoln from the heaven saying Kun ci amanar dumukradiyya. I believe, were Malam Aminu Kano alive would not have forgiven who use his title i.e. Malam but acted contrary to his ideology.
Would the Kano state governor embrace his fate and accept his destiny by out-rightly using his good command of language to apologize the people of Kano state for the alleged mismanagement of the people money and failure to implement the five objectives of sharia which he promised.
Would the Kano state government embrace its fate and accept its destiny by  reading my next article titled sharia and the Kano state government: sham and implosion, in which I will show how the Kano state failed woefully  in term of sharia implementation and economically.
For me hereby embracing my fate and accepting my destiny without grudges and concurred with Dr, Aliyu Tilde that “Writing your mind weekly on the pages of newspapers could be very risky even with the most sincere of purposes. On the one hand, by being critical of society, you are certain to be in the bad books of government, if you do not become a victim of its injustice “

Ibrahim writes from Dala Local Govt Area, Kano
