Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, has urged Muslims to embrace the policies of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs(NSCIA).
She spoke at a three-day General Assembly/National Executive Meeting (NEC) meeting of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) at the Central Mosque, Abuja.
She said that the meeting was critical and compelling as topical issues would be addressed.
“The NSCIA in accordance with its mandate has over the years contributed significantly to peace, security, peace and socioeconomic and political development of this great country, Nigeria.
“Indeed, there is no other time than now when we need the decisions, policies and programmes of the council to be translated in practice by all Muslims in the country.
“The council NEC meeting therefore, captures the essence of peace in the attainment of national development and underscores its commitment to the promotion of peace, security and development which justifies the existence of the every community.
“I, therefore, respectfully call on Muslims all over the country to embrace the communique that will emerge in form of advice and decisions by the council especially those related to our personal affairs as Muslim Ummah in the country and those that concern our relationship with other faiths we promote peaceful existence in this country,’’ she said.
