The president also emphasised the need to promote updated knowledge through existing islamic learning institutions for youths in Northern Nigeria to speed up development in the region, Nigeria, and Africa.

“Please embark on special prayers. Embark on proper education for our youths. Kidnapping and banditry are not the way of God. Shedding each other’s blood is bad. And there can be no development without peace.

“It is only in the area of peace that we can eliminate poverty. We must work for peace in order for our economy to grow better,” the president said.

In his remarks, the Jam’iyyatu Ansaridden leader, Sheikh Muhammad Niass, encouraged the president to continue implementing his reform initiatives.

Niass said that his movement, which is reputed for its promotion of peace and tolerance, would continue to pray for Nigeria’s peaceful development.
