2019: Sul­tan urges Mus­lims to get vot­ers card

Sunday Trust - - NEWS - From Habibu Umar Aminu, Katsina

The Sul­tan of Sokoto and Pres­i­dent Gen­eral of the Supreme Coun­cil for Is­lamic Af­fairs in Nigeria, Al­haji Abubakar Saad 111, has stressed the need for all Mus­lims to take ad­van­tage of the on-go­ing vot­ers reg­is­tra­tion to ob­tain the card ahead of the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions.

Speak­ing at the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the 32nd edi­tion of the na­tional Qu­ranic recita­tion com­pe­ti­tion in Katsina, the Sul­tan said it is only through the card that the peo­ple can have lead­ers of their choice.

“Let’s get our vot­ers card be­cause it is with it that we can get what we de­sire. Peo­ple will come to seek for votes and we shall then tell what we re­quire of them”, he said.

He en­joined lead­ers to fear God and the fol­low­ers as well. In his re­marks, the state gov­er­nor, Aminu Masari, said the is­sue of Al­ma­jiri ed­u­ca­tion must be holis­ti­cally looked at by all stake­hold­ers.

About 360 par­tic­i­pants took part in the com­pe­ti­tion from 32 states and the FCT.

Gombe State will host the 33rd edi­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion.
