Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has won the ‘Global Muslim Personality Award’ again. He was elected the world’s top Muslim figure for the third time in a row.
The award is given annually by Muslim News Nigeria, a Nigerian newspaper on Islam.
The newspaper’s publisher, Rashid Abu Bakr, announced Erdogan’s award in a statement, according to the Turkish news Anadolu Agency.
In a statement, Abu Bakr said the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020 had put the world in a difficult position, affecting human progress. Erdogan was determined in his goals and his achievement surpassed the previous year.
By caring for and developing the national potential of the Turkish state and its local economy, President Erdogan has set an example to the world, which is lacking due to the absence of Islamic ideals in human rights, politics, justice and economic equality.
This award has been given since 2018. The award was introduced in recognition of the various achievements of Muslims around the world.
It is to be mentioned that there is a kind of discussion in the Muslim world about Erdogan. Some say that the leadership of Muslim Ummah is now in his hands. In this case, Saudi Arabia is lagging behind day by day. Erdogan is coming forward to fill that void.
