The Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has advocated proper regulatory system for religious preachings to avoid extremism, intolerance and misguidance of youths in Nigeria.

The Governor made this call over the weekend while receiving the National Executives of Jama’atul Izalatul Bidiah Wal Iqamatil Sunnah (JIBWIS) led by its National Chairman, Shaikh Abdullahi Bala-Lau at the Government House, Ilorin.

According to the governor, there is an urgent need for religious groups in the country to devise an acceptable and workable means of curtailing indoctrination of youths by religious extremists. He advised JIBWIS to partner with similar religious bodies in ensuring that correct information and teachings that would show the beauty and sweetness of Islam is disseminated in Nigeria.

The governor said there are misrepresentations and misconceptions on various teachings of Islam which must be addressed by relevant Islamic bodies to ensure that the right information is disseminated to the public about Islam.

“As leaders of religious organisations, you have critical roles to play in redirecting the society to live a better God guided direction,” the governor admonished.

He commended the organisation for its efforts in propagating Islam and for preaching peaceful coexistence in the country.

Governor Ahmed also advocated acquisition of both western and Islamic education by Muslim youths in order to maximise opportunities and properly understand dynamics of the modern world.

Speaking earlier, the National Chairman, Jama’atul Izalatul Bidiah Wal Iqamatul Sunnah (JIBWIS), Shaikh Abdullahi Bala-Lau, had called on Nigerian leaders to always give sense of direction to the teeming youths particularly through skill acquisition programmes.

He advised Muslims to follow the real teachings of Islam and laws of the land in order to ensure peace and harmony in the country.

According to Shaikh Bala-Lau, the organisation, with over 40 years of propagating Islam, had rendered humanitarian services to a lot of Nigerians across religious divide.
