Ahmed noted that there is an urgent need for religion groups in the country to devise an acceptable and workable means of curtailing indoctrination of youths by religious extremists. He advised JIBWIS to partner with similar religious bodies in ensuring that correct information and teachings that would show the beauty and sweetness of Islam is disseminated in Nigeria.

The governor said there are misrepresentations and misconceptions on various teachings of Islam which must be addressed by relevant Islamic bodies to ensure that the right information is disseminated to the public about Islam.

“As leaders of religious organisations, you have critical roles to play in redirecting the society to live a better God guided direction,” the governor said.

He commended the organisation for its efforts in propagating Islam and for preaching peaceful coexistence in the country.

He also advocated acquisition of both western and Islamic education by muslim youths in order to maximise opportunities and properly understand dynamics of the modern world.
