    “The programme has to do with the unity of Muslim Ummah in the forthcoming 2023 general elections. As organizers of this program, Al-amaanah Global Islamic Foundation which I am the chairman standing before you, we organized this program for the entire Muslim Ummah in the country to get ourselves united to confirm and endorse our representatives who declared to the nation that they are going to present to the entire country muslim-muslim ticket.

    “They are challenging we Muslim scholars and the entire Imams of Nigeria for the endorsement and their support which we now come out en masse from the 19 Northern states of the country for the endorsement of Muslim-Muslim ticket that they are our representatives and we are supporting them towards the development of our country for the prosperity of our nation.” He said.

    Also speaking with journalists shortly after the event, the Imam of Al-amaanah Kaduna, Imam Tukur Adam said, “I am among the speakers and participants in this programme and we are here to discuss way forward on how to choose the right candidate for Nigeria in the forthcoming election.

    “We are concerned about what is happening in Nigeria ranging from insecurity and the economy of Nigeria that has decayed. Tribalism, sectionalism and all these things are a concern to us as Imam.

    “That is why we are gathered here with all Imams and Islamic Scholars to discuss what is the future of Nigeria and how we can face the forthcoming elections. We are here to choose for Nigeria because everybody is suffering. There is no any section in Nigeria that is not suffering insecurity either directly or indirectly. Also the economic situation that is hard on Nigerians especially the poor masses.

    “Every Nigerian has the right to cast their vote for whoever they like. But we here we are under the umbrella of muslim-muslim ticket because we are created for this religion, we are here on Earth to worship Allah.” He added.
