The President shares in this moment of joy and thanksgiving with the leader of the Qadiriyya Sufi Order, who also serves as Head of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (Society for the Support of Islam) and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs.

The congratulatory message from the foremost Islamic organization headed by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, was conveyed in a letter signed by the Deputy Secretary-General of the council, Prof. Salisu Shehu on Tuesday.

Though not very much known to the public, Sultan of Sokoto and Primate Elijah Ayodele have a robust relationship that started long time ago. It would be recalled that in 2017, Sultan described Primate Ayodele as his brother while recognizing the many philanthropic activities he has done for the Muslim community.
