MUSWEN says the move will provide sound teaching and prevent youths from being involved in terrorism

The Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria (MUSWEN) has called on the Federal Government to make religious education compulsory, to end Boko Haram attacks in the country. 

The association made the call on Sunday in Ibadan at its Fourth Annual Lecture and Presentation of awards to winners of its 2012 Annual Essay Competition. 

MUSWEN called for religious harmony and strengthening of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) at the states and Local Government Councils.

Prof. Daud Noibi, MUSWEN?s Executive Secretary, in his lecture entitled “Preventing Religious Disputes and Violence in South West Nigeria,” stressed the need for peace by preventing religious distrust, disharmony and violence, not only in the South West but also in the entire country.

Also speaking, Abdulganiyu Owolabi, the Secretary to the Ekiti State Government, stressed the need for education and creation of employment opportunities for youths to keep them occupied.

Owolabi, who is also the Vice President of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, said that Boko Haram was politically motivated. He added that with sound education and employment opportunities, youths would 

resist temptations to be  involved in criminalities for monetary reward.

Prof. Sabitu Adegoke, the Founder and Spiritual Head, Shafaudeen in Islam Worldwide, called on Nigerians to continue to live in peace and unity by disallowing religious differences in the country.
