Governor Bello Mohammed has advocated for unity among Nigerian Muslims as he hosts this year’s Maulud marking the birthday of Sheikh Ibrahim Nyass.
Governor Matawalle said the ceremony, which holds on annual basis, is another avenue where Muslins across the world gather to praise Allah and his messenger, Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
According to the Governor, this year’s Maulud, which attracted hundreds of thousands of people into Zamfara state where everyone was engaged in prayer and praises to Allah (SWT), is what the state needs at this moment of its trials.
“I will not hesitate to grant the hosting of next year’s Maulud if requested by the organising committee”, Governor Matawalle enthused. He called on all participants at the Maulud ground to dedicate their energy in fervent prayer for peace and unity of our country.
The occasion witnessed the turbaning of the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi 11 as the Grand Patron and leader of the Tijjaniyya sect in Nigeria, a position his grand father, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi 1 held until his demise in the early 1980s.
In his acceptance speech, Muhammadu Sanusi 11 assured the sect in Nigeria that he will exert all that it takes from him to move his followers to progress.
The occasion was attended by hundreds of thousands of Tijjaniyya sect followers from across the World under the chairmanship of the World Tijjaniyya sect leader, Sheikh Muhammad Mahi Nyass.
