Kano State Govt sends 50 Imams and Islamic scholars to Saudi Arabia for training, to get N20,000 monthly stipend

50 Imams and Islamic scholars have been sponsored by Kano state government for training on guidance and preaching techniques in Saudi Arabia, Governor Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has disclosed.
According to a statement issued yesterday May 27, by Ameen K. Yassar, Press Secretary to the Governor:

He made the disclosure when members of the state Izalatul Bid Wa Ikamatus Sunnah, an Islamic non-governmental organization paid him a courtesy call on Tuesday, adding that the sponsorship would continue gradually as the economy of the state improves.

The training, according to the governor, would expose them to preaching techniques and update their knowledge of religious and secular issues in the light of rapid globalization.

Stressing that the importance of the training to the propagation of Islam cannot be over emphasized, he lamented that some religious scholars, instead of guiding their followers to do right, they distance them from the right path because of lack of preaching techniques.

Governor Ganduje said his administration recently introduced monthly allowances for Imams and their supporting personnel, explaining that each Imam would get a monthly stipend of N20, 000, their deputies, N15, 000 each while every Mu’azzin will take home N10, 000.

The governor appealed to members of the Izala group to educate Muslims on right of passage during Friday Congregational Prayer, noting that unnecessary blocking of roads during the prayers is against Islamic precepts.

He urged the religious leaders to continue supporting and praying for President Muhammad Buhari to succeed, adding that the state government is ready to partner with any organization for the progress of the state and Nigeria at large.

Earlier, the state chairman of the group, Sheik Sani Sharif Umar said they were at Government House to introduce newly elected members of the state branch, assuring that they would support the government to achieve its goals.

SO LIE MUHAMED NO TOK LIE.

this is the worst regime in the history of nigeria,obviously he didnt have a plan on how to rule this country before his election victory. under Goodluck ebeles regime nigeria was ranked as THE LARGEST ECONOMY IN AFRICA and 25 in the world, now we arent in the list at all.buhari is totally clueless. under goodlucks leadership oil had a world wide recession but he and ngozi okonjo iweala still figured ways to grow our economy. buhari should not sit like a child apportioning blames to pdp,as a president all conditions musnt be perfect before u can rule well. try and manage our economy like goodluck did. d largest economy in africa has just crumpled under buharis one year rule in office.buhari claims goodluck left nothing when he was going yet it was goodlucks 2015 budget that he has been using since he entered office,buhari just signed his this month. that means all his expenditures so far has been with goodlucks revenue from d budget.who is fooling who? buhari claims the past politicians are the curse of the bad economy hence he cant rule well yet goodluck entered office and still drove our economy to the biggest in africa although the previous presidents before him stole money.buhari is probing just pdp officials yet apc amechi used river state money to sponsor apc yet he hasnt been probed intead his now minister of transport.all the pdp that moved to apc hasnt been probed.obasanjo hasnt been probbed. buhari is the most corrupt president in the history of nigeria
Dis man should resign to save dis nation from doom! Buhari couldn't even solve a single problem,he's there ranting and fighting pdp and bokoharam which he sponsored to destroy Gej's administration. If u were there when Ebola struck, d whole country would hv wiped away. Clueless president!
Even the global recession then did not touch Naija cos GEJ & his team have brains....not like u deceitful liars.

And this is where our scarce resources go !!! How can we ever grow as a nation? So sad!!! People are losing their jobs daily now and this is how a government chooses to spend its monthly allocation, the bulk of which is not even generated by that state. I weep for this country !!!

Keep training them for terrorism. God is watching. Before you people islamize Nigeria, we would have divided. Then you can keep your sharia law to your detriment. Deranged animals

What's the business of the government with religious bodies that neither pay tax nor have significant value to the economy. In my opinion, they are simply recruiting more extremists to the ideology of isis which Saudi Arabia is a passive supporter.

Why should a state government use its resources to promote one religion in their state. This nonsense has to stop.

This is a clear proof to all those Buhari/Apc lovers that Buahri's agenda right now is in creating strong footing for Islam in Nigeria and nothing else that's why he can't focus to make economy/Nigeria work. He's distracted due to his original agenda as president of Nigeria, Islamization. Nigerians wake up and stop him before we regret and pray to our Almighty God in the name of Jesus to forgive us and intervene and disappoint the evil devices of the craft Muslims against His people in Nigeria for us to have peace. Oh God fight for us to hold our peace in Jesus' name, amen, amen and Amen...
