The Guest Speaker was Dr. Quick who presented a keynote address titled, “The Living Legacy of Sheikh Usmanu Dan Fodiyo in Americas.”

Professor Rabi’u stated that the Sokoto Caliphate had a significant influence on the propagation of Islam in Yorubaland while delivering a presentation on “The Impact of Jihad of Sheikh Danfodiyo on the Spread and Practice of Islam in South Western Nigeria” on Sunday.

The majority of Yoruba leaders and obas adopted Islam as a result of the Sokoto jihadists’ hard work, he claimed, which eventually drew a large number of their followers.

There isn’t a single Yoruba state that follows Islam without having some connection to the jihadists in Sokoto.

Former National Amir of the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Shehu Abubakar, advised Muslims to be honest and genuine in all of their dealings and activities in his paper presentation titled: “Da’awah to Non-Muslim: the Sokoto Jihad Leaders’ Legacy”.

He also exhorted them to keep showing kindness to non-Muslims.
