Kano State Governor, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, has appealed to religious leaders in the country to continue to enlighten citizens on more positive ways of life.
Kwankwaso said the call became necessary in view of the challenges facing the country, adding that all Nigerians, irrespective of religious inclination, must work for the benefit of the nation.
The governor said: “Nigerians must work together to make the country a better place for all. I also appeal to the people to always preach peace and unity.”
He made the statement last Sunday during a special prayer session organised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwankwasiyya Emancipation Forum in conjunction with Kwankwasiyya Media Forum at the Government House in Kano.
Kwankwaso thanked the organisers of the prayers session and religious leaders in the state for their sense of patriotism and determination to ensure peace and stability in the state.
In his remarks, the Chairman of APC Kwankwasiyya Emancipation Forum, Alhaji Hamza Usman Darma, said the session was organised for peace and prosperity to reign in Nigeria.
Also speaking, the chairman of Kwankwasiyya Media Forum, Alhaji Hamisu Sa’ad Dogon Nama, expressed appreciation to the religious scholars and Imams who attended the special prayers for their devotion to peace and unity.
