    The Deputy Governor, who was represented by the Director, Civil Service, office of the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, AbdurRazak Ekemode, urged religious leaders to use their positions in promoting peace in the state.
    She said, “IVC which serves as an avenue to orientate Muslim students towards the right mindset of the nation building, entrench moral brightness, entrepreneurship, brotherhood and to revive spirituality of students.
    “Islam is a religion of peace and we must continue to tell ourselves the basic truths that will help us to do things that are right before God and man. Our state has the enviable record of being a place where adherent of all faiths coexist peacefully without any rancor.”

    “This nation is being run in a way that cannot guarantee success, a shade that makes it vulnerable to attack. We cannot sustain this nation with the excessive insincerity, gross deceit, inestimable greed and lack of transparency and accountability among the ruling class.
    “Our problems will not leave us without a concerted effort guided by the Book of Allah, where all humans are treated equally. No hijab victimisation, no religious sentiment, no gender bias and no tribal discrimination,” Ashafa said.
