Sokoto to establish national qu’ranic centre


 The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, said on Sunday that a National Qu’ranic Centre would be established in the state.

The sultan stated this at the closing of the 27th National Qu’ranic Recitation Competition in Gusau.

He said that the past winners of the competition would be employed to propagate the teachings of the Holy Qu’ran at the centre when constructed.

“If we can follow the teachings of the Holy Qu’ran, people will live in peace and harmony”, he said.

The sultan said in order to have a decent and peaceful society in the country, there must be justice.

“I urge all the people in charge of justice, both the legal practitioners and village heads, to be just.

“We at the top are always ready and will be willing to do anything to solve the problems in this country”.

The sultan also commended the organisers of the competition, Zamfara State government and the Centre for Islamic Studies, Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, for a good job.
