Mr. Secka thanked both camps on behalf of the Imam Ratib of Banjul for what he called “exercise of maturity” to end their differences without any conflict, which he said, is very good in the name of Islam.
He also advised preachers in the country to preach in a peaceful manner that will not bring any differences to the Islamic religion and in the country.
Secka reminded that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance and called on all to promote peace and stability among Muslims in the country.
He equally called on the religious leaders in the country to unite and work towards the propagation of Islamic teachings and values in the country and the world at large.
