Insurgency: Sultan Seeks Unrestricted Access To Education For Youth



Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saád Abubakar has
advocated for an unrestricted access to
education for youth, to enhance peace, harmony
and progress in Nigeria.
Abubakar gave the advice in a message to the
opening of the 98th Islamic Vacation Course
organised by the Muslim Students’ Society of
Nigeria (MSSN) on Friday in Ibadan.
Represented by Prof. Dawud Noibi, Executive
Secretary, Muslim Ummah of South West
Nigeria, the Sultan said unfettered access to
education must remain the priority of any
government, to ensure a brighter future for
Nigerian youth and the country.
He also advised leaders in the country to always
be guided in their actions by the fear of God.
Abubakar urged Muslims to remain patient in
the face of the challenges facing the nation,
reminding them of Allah’s saying that “every
hardship comes with a relief.”
“I urge you all to stay away from evil company.
Do not allow anyone to lure you into engaging
in any kind of action that could compromise the
security of the nation.
“As you are aware, our religion, Islam, stands
for peace, so lets remain peaceful, so that we
may live a peaceful life here and be
accommodated in the Home of Peace in the life
to come’’, he said.
The Sultan, who is also the President-General,
Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs
(NSCIA), congratulated the MSSN for its
educational programmes for the youth and
prayed for its continued success.
Earlier, the National President of the Society,
Sirajudeen Abdulazeez called on Muslim
students to join in salvaging the country from
total collapse.
“We should stand up courageously and wrestle
power from those ruling us recklessly.
“We should be bold to tell those who are
traumatising and threatening our future that
come 2015 we will vote them out”, he said.
Abdulazeez also urged all Muslims to obtain
their voters card and participate actively in the
forthcoming general election.
In a remark, the MSSN B-Zone Coordinator,
Alhaji Mushafau Alaran called on the past
leaders of the group to contrbute towards the
development of its permanent site.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that
goodwill messages were received from the
represenatatives of the governors of Lagos,
Ogun, Oyo and Osun states.
Over 10,000 students are participating in the 10-
day vacation course which involves leadership
training, lectures and seminar. (NAN)
