Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar Sa’ad has urged Nigerian Muslim women to support the current fight against corruption by discouraging their husbands from engaging in corruption.
The Sultan said this on Friday while speaking at the 30th Anniversary of the Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN) in Ilorin.
The anniversary was celebrated at the Banquet Hall of the University of Ilorin where various Muslim organisations from Ghana, Ivory Coast and the United Kingdom came to felicitate with the Nigerian branch of FOMWAN.
The monarch pointed out that the change needed in Nigeria should start from home for it to succeed.
He, therefore, advised the women to always abide by the dictates of Islam, and discourage their husbands from corrupt practices.
Also speaking at the ceremony, Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed told the gathering that ethnic disunity and religious imbalance in the nation could be traced to lack of good leaders.
He, however, urged the women to hand down good morals to their children, for them to be good and responsible leaders of tomorrow.
