The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Nigeria will tomorrow confer International Peace Award on the Arch Bishop of Abuja, John Onaiyekan during the group’s Jalsa Tarbiyya Islamic Training Conference for Northern Nigeria.
The award which will hold at the International Conference Center, Abuja was meant to reward the meritorious service of the Bishop Onaiyekan on inter religious harmony in Nigeria. In 2016, the Peace Award was given to General Abdul Salami Abubakar at the same venue.
The Ahmadiyya Islamic Conference for the Northern Region will feature lectures on inter religious issues and global peace from eminent Islamic scholars and leaders for different religious groups. Delegates from all parts of Nigeria are already in Abuja for the three day event.
