Cherif Shaikh Mohamed Elhavedh Ennahoui, president of the Islamic Cultural Group in Mauritania and West Africa who is also a former minister in the Mauritanian government, visited The Gambia on Friday 12 March 2021 as part of his role and interest in the development of inter-African relations particularly within the West African region.

His visit was also meant to carry the mission and message of consolidation of the fraternity between The Gambia and Mauritania, represented in his Excellency Mr. Adama Barrow and his Excellency Mr. Mohamed Cheikh El Ghazouani.

The Shaikh’s strong relationship with The Gambia started in the days of his father, the revered Cherif Shaikh Mohammedou Ennahoui, who was a very known figure in The Gambia as he delivered big efforts and devoted his time to The Gambia even before its independence and way long after its independence.

The Gambian people have always known his values, the amplitude of his work and actions. Cherif Shaikh Mohamed El Havedh has been playing that role for years as he supervised the organisation of the two conferences of Ulemas in 2010 and 2011 in Senegal as counselor to then president of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, (the conference of Ulema of Africa in 2010 and the conference of Ulema of the world in 2011.)

He was also the vice president of the Mauritanian National Assembly and has met many great world leaders over the years who welcomed him and celebrated him for the big role he has been playing for the people of the region and to the service of Islam.

During his visit, Shaikh would be giving two lectures about ‘Love and Peace in Islam’.
