Islamic group commends FG on fight against corruption
In a bid to lend its voice towards national development, the Dar-Us-Su’Ada Islamic Academy recently organised a one-day symposium under the theme, Governance and Sustainable Development: Islamic Perspective.
Held in Lagos, chief host of the symposium, Dr. Saheed Olurotimi Timehin, a senior lecturer at Lagos State University (LASU), in his welcome address, reiterated the old saying about corruption being the bane of Nigeria. Saheed commended the current administration for their dogged struggle for the emancipation of the country and charged Nigerians to support their efforts and to be patient with them.
In his remarks, Director Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Professor Ishaq Lakin Akintola, who was the chief speaker at the symposium, encouraged Muslims to join active politics and maintain the teachings of Allah, as that’s the only way to achieve sustainable development in the country.
Alhaji Tajudeen Olusi, an APC chieftain who chaired the symposium, urged Muslims to balance the time they devote to religious activities with governance, saying governance is the avenue to attain a sustainable development.
Sheik Sa’eed Abdul, who was the second speaker, spoke extensively on the need for Muslims to be active in governance and shouldn’t forget to maintain the Quranic teachings in discharging their leadership functions.
