National Convention conveyed by the Majlisu Tajdidi Tadamunil Muslimeen Association (MTTM), an amalgamated body of four like-minded Dawah organisations in Nigeria has called on all Islamic organisations to come and join the struggle for the unification of Ummah.
This move, the convention of organisations, which include The Muslim Congress (TMC), Jama’atut Tajdidil Islamy (JTI), Organisation of Tadamunil Muslimun (OTM) and Jama’atul Muslimeen Foundation (JMF) said, was the only way to bring back the lost glory of the Muslim community.
The communiqué signed by the Deputy National Chairman, MTTM, Malam Abubakar Mujahid, said the convention had in attendance delegates from 27 states of the federation and the FCT with the theme: “Unification of Thought”.
The communiqué reads: “The convention called on all Islamic organisations to come and join the struggle for the unification of Ummah, which is the only way to bring back the lost glory of the Muslim community.
“Participants noted that the unification of thoughts among Muslims in Nigeria is the best way to make the country a better society for all. This is because the true teaching of Islam centres on humanity, justice and fairness to all manner of people.
“The convention called on politicians to be a vanguard for promoting peace, unity and coexistence among Nigerians, instead of creating disharmony and animosity among the citizen in attempt to achieve parochial interest at the detriment of the corporate existence of the nation.
“Participants reminded political leaders that they do not have any country other than Nigeria and should therefore work towards making it great, prosperous, social and economically viable.”
While condemning the abduction of 110 students of Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi, Yobe State by suspected Boko Haram, the communiqué called for collaborative efforts among government, security agencies and civil society organisations towards ensuring safe rescue of the Dapchi schoolgirls and the remnants Chibok schoolgirls abducted since April, 2014.
He said the convention registered its condolence to all members, family, friends and Nigerian Muslim community over the death of one of the country’s renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Turaita, who was an active member of this Da’awah till his death in February 2018.
The convention had in attendance the Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Ibrahim Wakkala Muhammad, Sarkin Malaman Gusau and a number of leaders of prominent/leading Islamic organisations including Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria, Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria, National Islamic Centre, Community Youth and Development among others.
