The Women in Da’awah Organisation (WDO), a coalition of Muslim women groups, have urged the Federal Government to seek better and more effective strategies to deal with banditry and terrorism.

The organisation made call in the communique issued after its 15th annual conference held in Yola, Adamawa State.

The theme of the conference was derived from Qur’an 4:79 ‘Whatever of good reaches you is from Allah, but whatever of evil befalls you is from yourself’. 

The communique, signed by Zainab Umar, National Secretary, Drafting Committee, urged Nigerians to sincerely repent to Allah and pray for his intervention in the affairs of the nation.

“A reorientation project should be embarked upon by government and other organizations to encourage the populace to take responsibility for some of the problems being experienced and proffer solutions,” the communique read in part.

The organisation also called for strengthening of the educational system at all levels to produce well-informed and productive individuals “through redirecting the educational system to focus on application of knowledge rather than its acquisition.

“The Muslim Ummah should embrace and prioritise wealth creating initiatives such as agriculture, entrepreneurship and skills transfer instead of reliance on government jobs.

“All stakeholders including parents, scholars, organisations and authorities at all levels must deal with drug abuse within the society through seeking the sources of drugs for the different categories of users (women, youths and children) and applying strategies to block these sources, while rehabilitating addicts and sensitizing non users.”
