President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo instructed his minister and related stakeholders to collaborate in the construction of a new building of the Muhammadiyah Mu’allimin Islamic School, Yogyakarta, which will begin next week.

“I have ordered Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) to immediately begin the construction,” said President Jokowi while attending the commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Mu’allimin-Mu’allimaat Muhammadiyah Islamic School, Yogyakarta, Thursday (6/12).

The President explained that he takes an interest in educational facilities owned by the Islamic organization Muhammadiyah because it has produced many prominent figures in the country.

“I saw in this book that in 1929, the building here was already built with a magnificent design. Later in 1951 and 2008, it was repaired with an even better design. I believe the new building will be more impressive,” the President said.

On the occasion, the President also requested Muhammadiyah members to continue to maintain Indonesia’s unity and harmony because it is our nation’s greatest asset.

“I invite everyone to continue to maintain the Islamic solidarity and national solidarity for the sake of the unity of Indonesia,” the President concluded.
