The Hausa Chief of Ablekuma and Agape Gonse, Sarki Sheriff Adam also known as Sarki Gadafi has called on all religious organisations to embrace religious tolerance to enhance national development. The Sarki of Ablekuma Agape Gonse who doubles as the representative of Chiefs at the United Nations Youth Association said this prior to the upcoming Maulid (celebration of the Birth of the Holy Prophet Mohammed) to be held on November 5, 2022 at Ablekuma Agape Gonse. He urged the Muslim youth to tolerate other people’s religious beliefs; especially, various Muslim sects to help promote peace, unity and development of the Muslim ummah.
Touching on the theme of the Maulid celebration “Religious Tolerance and National Development: the Role of the Muslim Youth” he said it will help bring Muslims, Christians and other religious bodies together and strengthen religious tolerance in Ablekuma Agape Gonse in particular and the country at large. He called on parents to place emphasis on their Children’s education which will help them to be useful to society. Skills training is also a key to national development and called on the youth to as well focus on acquiring such knowledge.
He urged the Zongo youth to involve themselves in national development adding that the United Nations has put up a 17 agenda dubbed sustainable development goals with a focus on poverty eradication, zero hunger, good health and well-being, and quality education among others that will be discussed at the first-ever Maulid celebration. The goals will be communicated to various chiefs, imams and opinion leaders to convey the message to their subjects and serve as a source of encouragement for the Zongo youth to take advantage of any opportunity that comes their way.
Sarki Gaddafi finally called on parents to train their children on the right path and not to look down on other people’s religions but rather coexist in peace and harmony.
