The Algerian national made these observations during a an interactions with a cross section of journalists in Accra as part of his reciprocal visit on the Head of the Ghana Tijaniyya Movement, Sheikh Abul Faila.

He said currently , the Tijanniya movement is flourishing and spreading at a faster rate as it now has more than 300 million membership worldwide and that they have achieved greatly as a movement.
