Women, Reject Public Money Stolen By Your Husbands -Sultan
"Women must discuss corruption and ask questions from their husbands about their ill-gotten wealth especially from those who are public office holders.
“If you notice that your husbands, few months after becoming public officers, started buying exotic cars, building houses all over the place, ask questions on the source of that sudden wealth. As women, you must add your voice to issues affecting our country, formulate policies where anyone seeking public office must listen to you even if they don’t like it."
Sultan of Sokoto and President Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Alhaji Muhammad Saad Abubakar, advised Muslim women to key into the fight against corruption by rejecting stolen public money from their husbands who are public office holders.
He also challenged wives of state governors and emirs to lead the campaign for girl-child education. Abubakar disclosed this in Ilorin, Kwara state capital yesterday during the formal opening of the 30th annual national conference of Federation of Muslim Women’s Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN).
The Sultan who spoke on ‘Motherhood and Leadership’ at the event explained that, “the myriad of problems confronting the country starts from our homes.”
