The President-General of the Nigerian National Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, gave the assurance during a courtesy visit to the palace by the pastor-in-charge of Region 18 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG comprising of Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi states, Pastor Ola Adejubee.

Adejubee was recently appointed to be in charge of the region thus necessitating a courtesy visit to the Sultan; alongside some provincial pastors of the church.

The main purpose of the visit was to fashion out ways of consolidating the existing cordial relationship between RCCG in the Region and the Sultanate.

Muslims and Christians have been co-habiting in the North West peacefully. It is believed that the maturity of the Sultanate and the tolerance of Muslims may be responsible for the relative peace being enjoyed in the region.

The visit turned out to be a success as the RCCG delegation led by the pastor-in-charge of region and his wife including the pastors in charge of the provinces of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara had a great time interacting with the Sultan and his people.

The highlights of the visit included exchange of gifts comprising a big Bible and a book: 21 Leadership Secrets of Pastor E A Adeboye.

The Sultan gave the RCCG delegation copies of his past speeches and re-iterated his commitment to host Pastor Adeboye in Sokoto for a prayer programme.

The visit, according to observers, is a step in the right direction and would further strengthen the harmonious relationship between Muslims and Christians in the states.
