Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Sa'ad Abubakar and Osun State governor Rauf Aregbesola have charged Nigerian Muslims to be united and be at peace with other citizens.
They made the admonition yesterday in Osogbo at the opening of the National Conference and Merit Award of the Da'awah Coordination Council of Nigeria. The two leaders further advised Muslims to obey the injunctions in the Holy Quran and to also fight poverty in the country.
Alhaji Abubakar specifically called on Muslims to embrace peaceful coexistence, adding that Muslims and non-Muslims must know what Islam represents.
At the event, wife of the vice president Mrs Aminat Sambo, who was represented by Hajiya Sofia Sani, said the federal government was working hard to ensure security in the country.
She charged the Da'awah Council to engage youths in productive ventures.
