Sharia law not for non-Muslims, Sultan assures Sokoto corps members
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar, has assured the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream 11 corps members in Sokoto State that the Shari’a Law is not binding on non-Muslims in the state.
The Sultan gave the assurance on Thursday in his palace when the NYSC management team in the state led by the state coordinator and some selected corps members paid him a courtesy visit.
During the courtesy visit led by Muhammad Nakamba, state coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the Sultan assured the corps members of their safety.
He noted that Sharia law is not binding on non-Muslims, stressing that nobody would be coerced to join Muslim against his or her wish.
“In Sokoto, Sharia law is only binding on Muslims, nobody will force you to wear Hijab or force you to obey Islamic laws if you are not a Muslim,” he stated.
“If you are posted to schools, impact the lives of the students, make them better than you met them.”
