Insecurity will end when government pay religious leaders – Islamic Cleric
The committee of FCT imams initiative (CFII) has said religious leaders can help fight insecurity in the country.
Tajudeen Adigun, chairman of CFII said Imams and other religious leaders should be included in the fight against insecurity in Nigeria. He spoke at a recent event on Saturday in Abuja. According to him, people have belief and listen to their imams much more than the politicians.
“This is not to underrate the position of politicians, because Allah has handed over power to them. However, politicians should not underrate the influence of imams. If government decides to pay salaries to religious leaders so as to maintain peace, it is not too much.
“When I say religious leaders, I mean generally including the non-Muslim religious leaders, because all religions have influence over their followers. In FCT, I can tell you we have so many examples of calamities that when 75 percent of the imams deliver uniform Friday sermons, it will calm the situation,” he said.
