The Da’awa Coordination Council of Nigeria, said on Sunday in Sokoto that it would organise a seminar to appraise the performance of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III.
He said after a meeting with various Islamic organizations in Sokoto State, that the focus would be on the journey so far and challenges ahead.
“We all believe that, the basis on which the entire Sultanate was built upon was based on knowledge and Da’awa.
“So, we as representatives of Da’awa, therefore, felt that we are the most appropriate group to look into what the Sultan has done over the last 10 years.
“We will look at the challenges encountered, proper solutions and advises on areas that needed improvement.
“Basically, we will make suggestions on how to move the Ummah and the country forward,” the president said.
Malam Lawal Maidoki, National President of the group said that the event was to mark Abubakar’s 10th anniversary as Sultan.
Maidoki noted that the Sultan had taken solid steps so far in all areas of development, including “the unity of Muslim Ummah, education and openness, as well as respect for other members of the society.”
The News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] reports that the Sultan was installed on November 2, 2006 as the 20th Sultan of Sokoto Caliphate.
