Tajudeen Adigun said this at the 19th conference of FCT Imam that was held at Abuja. Adigun said people listen to their religious leaders more than politicians.
Tajudeen said that the influence of religious leaders on their followers should not be belittled. Furthermore, he said it’s not too much if the government decides to pay salaries to religious leaders to tackle insecurity. He went on to stress that non-Muslim leaders are also included.
Tajudeen said, “However, politicians should not underrate the influence of imams. If the government decides to pay salaries to religious leaders to maintain peace, it is not too much”.
He concluded by saying that Imam lectures can help in calming the increasing rate of calamity.
