â€œGovernments at all levels of the Nigeria political structure should, as a way of diversifying the nationâ€™s economy, veer significantly and committedly into Agriculture as a primal instrument and potent tool for job creation, especially for our vibrant but helpless youths, sustainable economic growth and more importantly food securityâ€.
The Majlis enjoined governments in all states to ensure that there is provision of uninterrupted power supply in the country, which will ultimately engineer a high level of employment when local production of goods and services are sustainably improved.
Also discussed during its 41st Annual National Ijtema (Convention), with theme topic: Real Global Reformation and Revolution: The Islamic Prescription in Ekiti State, South-west, Nigeria, is security of live and prosperity.
â€œBeing seriously concerned and worried about the spate of improvement of the masses, as well as insecurity of live and property, the Ahmadi-Muslim Elders therefore resolved and recommended the followingâ€.
â€œMost Nigerians now live in fear day and night due to the activities of different ravaging reactionary forces in different parts of the countryâ€.
They pleaded with FG, especially State Governors, should do everything to ensure that workersâ€™ wage are paid to them as at when due, to enable them feed their families; at least, minimally so that they do not consequently become a threat to the peace of the entire society.
The Elders stressed further that most Nigerians are now seriously impoverished as a result of the economy that continues to nose-dive into depression by the day.
