Al Habibiyyah Islamic Society a non-governmental organisation has held a two-day capacity and empowerment programme for Imams in Lokoja Kogi state.The programme is part of the efforts of the organization to ensure that Muslim clerics are self-reliant, capable of creating wealth independently, avoid corrupt practices and other inhumane vices. The National Chief Imam of the society, Imam Fuad Adeyemi, pointed out that the workshop became imperative to train Imams for wealth creation, stressing that it exposed them to the importance of having a viable source of income. He explained that as clerics, it is important to have something to do to generate daily income rather than waiting for peanuts from anyone. He also noted that when the Islamic clerics are self-reliant, they will always have the gut, to tell the truth without fear or favour.He urged them to always unite the people in the way of Allah, noting that if the clerics had told those causing crises in the country the consequences of their activities, they would probably not go into evil acts.He added that as part of efforts to change the narratives, the Al Habibiyyah Islamic Society has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Directorate of Employment and All Famers Association of Nigeria. Also it has already been offered no fewer than 70 slots for training for Imams, while efforts are being made to partner SMEDAN with the possibility of sourcing for funds to commence small-scale enterprises on their own.
