Muslim group urges Tinubu to fulfil campaign promises to youths
The youth wing of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Nigeria, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to fulfil all the campaign promises he made, noting it was because of the promises Nigerians voted for him.
According to The PUNCH, the National President of the association, Mr Roqib Akintunde, made this urge in Akure, the Ondo state capital during a chat with newsmen at the starting of the 49th annual National Ijtema Convention, with the themed, ‘Upholding the institution of Khilafah through activities of Nizam-e-jama’at’.
While lamenting the situation of the country, the group claimed there was a lack of fulfilling promises by leaders who had governed the country in the past.
He said, “Tinubu should leave by the promises he has made to Nigerians and by show doing Nigeria will move forward. There must be justice at this point in time, and when there is justice there will be peace. If we want peace to reign in our society, there must be justice.
“Every stakeholder must be given what is due to them. So we as citizens of Nigeria are going to obey the authority while the president of the nation must fulfil his promises because it is because of the promises we voted for you.
“Tinubu must be committed to the development of this nation, he should engage youths of nowadays to move the country forward through their wisdom and knowledge. The simple way for the developing nation to get there is for the leaders who have been voted for to leave by their promises and they should ensure that all that they are doing are done with the sincerity of purpose.”
On the convention held in Owo, Akintunde disclosed that over 2000 youths will be participating at the 49th annual convention, comprises of 16 states of the country.
“The convention aims at deepening the participants’ understanding of these principles and inspire them to play an active role in their implementation within the Muslim community.”A good understanding of this theme is critical to peace and harmony in our community and to our individual moral and spiritual success. The primary purpose of creation is to serve our Creator as the Holy Qur’an 51 vs 57 states; “And I have not created the Jinn and the men, but they may worship Me”. It is also our responsibility to serve humanity and give back to our community.”
