Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has been awarded an honorary doctorate degree by the University of Tehran, Iran.

According to a statement by Dr. Fatima Ismaeel Hassan, a member of IMN, the event took place at a convocation organised by the university on Saturday.

Hassan quoted the university as saying the award was granted as a result of the approval given by its Senate.

“After thorough study of the life, education, and struggle of the Sheikh, the Senate of the University unanimously approved the award of an honorary doctorate degree (Honoris Causa) to Sheikh Ibraheem Ya’qoub El-Zakzaky (H) on World Studies: Peace and Conflict Resolution.

“The University of Tehran is among the top 500 universities in the world. According to the Centre for World University Rankings, the University of Tehran was ranked 2nd in Iran, 157th in Asia, and 495th in the world.

“While congratulating our leader on this honour, we call on people to struggle for the emancipation of mankind from slavery, tyranny, and injustice,” the statement read in part.
