The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, will address the Muslim community and the media on the state of the nation and the preparation for the forthcoming Ramadan fast Thursday in Abuja.
A statement in Abuja by AbdulLateef Adegbite, the Secretary- General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), said the Sultan will use the opportunity to announce to the world, certain restructuring and appointments recently made by the council.
He said the joint briefing will hold at the National Mosque conference hall, Abuja from 11 a.m. and will witness the attendance of representatives of Muslim groups and Islamic societies in the country.
Mr. Adegbite said the Council would also use the opportunity to inform the Nigerian muslim community about the likely date of commencement of 2012 Ramadan fast.
He said though the Council had at various fora expressed its concern on the state of the nation, the conference would also address some of the efforts of the Islamic body in confronting various challenges facing the country.
