Speaking at the event, Executive Secretary Muslim Ummar of South-West Nigeria, Professor Dawud Noibi explained that at death one is bound to regret either for deed one has done or what one ought not to have done adding that Abibatu Mogaji devoted the whole of her life to the service of mankind and Almighty Allah.

He called on Nigerians to always think about the hereafter in their actions adding that it is only those who devote their lives to the service of mankind and Allah that will be rewarded in the hereafter. The cleric was sad that Nigerians often devote themselves to the treasures of lives whereas the treasures of the hereafter are better and called on leaders to make the fear of God the basis of education bequeathed to the young ones to prevent them from growing up to become  cleaver Devils adding that the fear of Allah is the beginning of wisdom.

The Muslim Ummar said that education based on accountability to Allah should be the core of education in Nigeria and prayed for Allah to guide those leading the nation to God’s conscience adding that it is only God’s conscience that will lead Nigeria to moral rectitude. He added that only when leaders lead with God’s conscience that they will be able to secure followership and be rewarded.
