    Association cautions Muslim faithful against terrorism, unlawful acts

    The Abuja chapter of the Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA) has warned Muslim worshipers in Nigeria not to engage in terrorism and other illegal acts.

    UNIFEMGA National President Alhaji Ismaila Okunlola said this at the association's 15th annual Ramadan breakfast and conference program on Wednesday in Abuja.

    Okunlola said that a Muslim should not be a source of trouble for any other human being, Muslim or non-Muslim, saying that a true Muslim should be at peace with himself in society.

    According to him, a true believer will not engage in indiscriminate killing, kidnapping and terrorism.

    “A Muslim must not directly or indirectly support the perpetration of evils such as murder, kidnapping and violence, among others.

    Allah warns us in the glorious Qur'an that whoever kills a soul unless it is (as legal punishment) for murder or for causing disorder and corruption on earth it will be as if he had killed all mankind.

    "And whoever saves a life will be as if he had saved the life of all mankind," he said.

    The president said that 759 Obafemi Awolowo University students have so far benefited from the association's scholarship since the program's inception in 2008.

    “The support fund for the indigent has amounted to a total of N42 million. Therefore, we call on wealthy Muslims to support the scheme,” he said.

    Guest speaker Imam Shakirullah Badewa, while delivering his lecture "Insecurity and Islam, the Way Forward", called on Muslims to return to Allah and avoid all forms of immorality.

    Badewa said that Islam implies peace and added that insecurity has no place in Islam.

    "If we are Muslims and our Islam is strong enough and effective enough, we are supposed to have peace, not insecurity," he said.

    Dignitaries at the event included Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), represented attendee and former Minister of Communications, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu.

    Senator Abdullahi Adamu and President Muhammadu Buhari

    President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the newly elected chairman of the ruling party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, to be fair and firm in all his dealings.

    Senior Special Assistant to the President for Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu said in a statement that Buhari gave the post when he received Adamu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.

    The president assured the APC leader who led the nation that he will continue the fight to entrench democratic principles in politics and government affairs.

    He said, “Today, we should all be happy that the party has healed its wounds and is healed enough to move forward and meet the challenges of the upcoming state and general elections.

    “When I reflect on the policies of the administration in the economy and specifically in the development of agriculture, infrastructure, ICT and innovation and the welfare measures that we have put in place for women, youth and less privileged members of society, I get renewed confidence that our citizens will continue to support the APC in our electoral battles.

    “Our government is working for the betterment of the country.

    “Our policies and programs aim at nothing more than the betterment of the country and its people. Essentially, the party must bring the government's programs to the people to instill confidence in them."

    The President again commended the Vigilant and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee led by Mai Mala Buni for conducting the congresses and conventions that led to the emergence of the National Executive Committee (NEC) led by Adamu.

    "We can't thank you enough for everything you did," he added.

    Speaking to House correspondents at the end of the meeting, the APC president said he was at the presidential villa to thank the president for his support and contributions to the successful holding of the party's national convention on March 26.

    He said, “Since the end of the convention that took place on March 26, we have not come to meet with him (chairman) to thank him for providing leadership for the party to have a successful convention.

    “The opportunity came today (Thursday), so I am here with the immediate former president of our great party in the person of the governor of Yobe, who headed the special interim committee that organized a very, very historic national convention, since the history of democracy in this country, First Republic, Second Republic, up to where we are today.

    “I don't recall any convention where there was doubt about the possibility of its success than this one.

    “We came out clean and we think that the leadership that Mr. President provided to the party has made all of this possible.

    “So I came with my predecessor to get in touch with the president.

    “I am in charge of this party, and of God, we will be honest, we will take the trust that is entrusted to us with seriousness and every sense of patriotism.”

    Adamu calls for synergy between APC, Diaspora members

    Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for more synergy between the party's National Secretariat and members of the diaspora.

    Adamu said this when he received a delegation from the APC UK chapter led by Mr. Ade Omole on a congratulatory visit to Abuja.

    This is contained in a statement from Ogunseye, the UK APC Advertising Secretary on Tuesday in Abuja.

    Mr. Ade Omole, Leader of APC UK in a pose with Sen Abdullahi Adamu, National President of APC

    Ogunseye quoted the president as saying that synergy between the APC National Secretariat and diaspora members was critical to engendering better relations between members for the common good of the party and the country as a whole.

    He expressed his gratitude to Omole and members of the diaspora for their openness and commitment to the ideals of the party and for projecting the achievements of the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

    He praised the UK chapter for its tireless efforts to shape public perception of the APC-led administration through continued engagement on its various social networks.

    Adamu praised the chapter for publishing a 20-page booklet showcasing their achievements.

    Seeking more support from the diaspora, APC's national chairman encouraged Nigerians in the diaspora to be good ambassadors for the country.

    He promised to be part of the next highly subscribed APC UK virtual conference scheduled for April 10, which they were expected to attend.

    Omole said the UK chapter has created a web portal for the compendium of achievements of the APC-led government to better inform Nigerians at home and abroad about the leaps and bounds of the Buhari administration.

    “As of today, the APC UK Facebook page has more than 10 million daily views worldwide, through that channel, the many activities of the Federal Government of Nigeria are published for public broadcast.

    “The APC UK Twitter handle, which by the way is the only verified handle among all Diaspora handles, has been a veritable platform to checkmate the government fake news of the moment since 2015.

    “Through the handle, we have been promoting the image of the party and putting the leadership in proper perspective in the face of the many baseless narratives that are often published,” Omole said.

    According to him, this has greatly helped the party in shaping public perception of the ruling APC.

    He expressed optimism that, given his position as a senior statesman, former governor and senator, Adamu, as national chairman of the APC, was well equipped to successfully run party affairs.

    The Nigerian News Agency reports that Adamu emerged as APC national chairman at the March 26 National Convention as a consensus candidate after six other challengers resigned for him.

    NYSC inaugurates, bakery, water garment, factories in Keffi

    The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), launched its Bakery, Water and Clothing Factories and Skills Acquisition and Business Development (SAED) for North-Central.

    The Nigerian News Agency reports that the projects were inaugurated on Monday. Abdullahi Sule from Nasarawa State, at Magaji Dan Yamusa NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Keffi, Nasarawa State.

    Sule praised the NYSC for the laudable achievement, adding that the companies underlined the importance of not only acquiring a degree but also a skill.

    “So, I want to thank you for your vision, for redefining and reinvigorating NYSC, and for bringing this vision to life.

    “I want to assure you that by God, we will not only sponsor the products that you have here as a state, but we will find ways to work together as a team because this is coming just in time.

    "I firmly believe that from God Nigeria will win, our leaders will continue to be blessed with the wisdom to overcome all the challenges we face."

    NYSC CEO, Maj.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, at the opening, said that the execution of the projects was to revitalize the NYSC Ventures and SAED program in line with the NYSC Law for greater impact.

    According to him, both ventures are very important in light of the economic realities that prevail today.

    “SAED is geared towards empowering youth corps members for self-employment and wealth creation.

    “NYSC businesses, which include agricultural and other businesses, aim to provide some of our kit items and other essentials for completion of the orientation course.

    “This is in addition to serving as a source of income and training ground for members of the youth corps.

    "Our priority attention to the development of enterprises is particularly in line with the policies of the Federal Government on food security and diversification of the economy through the optimization of the nation's potential in non-oil sectors."

    While highlighting some of the organization's achievements through NYSC companies elsewhere in the country, Ibrahim said that more than N1 billion was generated through these sources and paid into Federal Government coffers between 2020 and 2021. .

    He said that while the new bakery, clothing and water factories were indicative of the organization's commitment to expanding its income-generating platforms, they would also serve as additional training pathways for corps members to enroll in relevant vocational skills under the SAED program.

    He added that the complex was unique in that it had the largest number of NYSC factories located in the same location.

    The NYSC chief said that, like similar ones set up for the Northeast, Northwest and Southwest, it would give youth corps members access to effective post-camp training in different vocational skill areas.

    “We are already in discussions with Nasarawa State University about a proposed partnership where the institution's Unit will use this facility to impart business skills to both corpsmen and interested youth from the Keffi community. ”.

    He urged facility managers to safeguard equipment maintenance standards at all times, adding that NYSC management will provide all necessary support for the effective operation and sustainability of the ventures.

    Senator Abdullahi Adamu, a former governor of the state and president of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said skills acquisition was highly critical.

    This, he said, was because the government was not in a position to employ all members of the corps after graduation.

    “So this type of initiative is very laudable and beyond the training skills that we have to also train these young people in the know-how, the approach of being self-sufficient,” he said.

    NYSC Director of Business Management, Mr. Momoh Mohammed, said that the garment factory was equipped with 100 industrial sewing machines and other machines necessary for the production of high-quality kit items to be supplied to the members.

    He also said that the water factory had three water packaging lines for the production of sachet water, as well as bottled water for pets and dispensers.

    “In the bakery, we have installed a modern oven and other equipment necessary for the production of enriching bread for health.

    “It is instructive to note that products from our bakery and water factory will be supplied to orientation camps in accordance with our mandate and will also be sold to the general public.”

    “This is in addition to serving as a source of income and training ground for members of the youth corps.

    "Our priority attention to the development of enterprises is particularly in line with the policies of the Federal Government on food security and diversification of the economy through the optimization of the nation's potential in non-oil sectors."

    While highlighting some of the organization's achievements through NYSC companies elsewhere in the country, Ibrahim said that more than N1 billion was generated through these sources and paid into Federal Government coffers between 2020 and 2021. .

    He said that while the new bakery, clothing and water factories were indicative of the organization's commitment to expanding its income-generating platforms, they would also serve as additional training pathways for corps members to enroll in relevant vocational skills under the SAED program.

    He added that the complex was unique in that it had the largest number of NYSC factories located in the same location.

    The NYSC chief said that, like similar ones set up for the Northeast, Northwest and Southwest, it would give youth corps members access to effective post-camp training in different vocational skill areas.

    “We are already in discussions with Nasarawa State University about a proposed partnership where the institution's Unit will use this facility to impart business skills to both corpsmen and interested youth from the Keffi community. ”.

    He urged facility managers to safeguard equipment maintenance standards at all times, adding that NYSC management will provide all necessary support for the effective operation and sustainability of the ventures.

    Senator Abdullahi Adamu, a former governor of the state and president of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said skills acquisition was highly critical.

    This, he said, was because the government was not in a position to employ all members of the corps after graduation.

    “So this type of initiative is very laudable and beyond the training skills that we have to also train these young people in the know-how, the approach of being self-sufficient,” he said.

    NYSC Director of Business Management, Mr. Momoh Mohammed, said that the garment factory was equipped with 100 industrial sewing machines and other machines necessary for the production of high-quality kit items to be supplied to the members.

    He also said that the water factory had three water packaging lines for the production of sachet water, as well as bottled water for pets and dispensers.

    “In the bakery, we have installed a modern oven and other equipment necessary for the production of enriching bread for health.

    “It is instructive to note that products from our bakery and water factory will be supplied to orientation camps in accordance with our mandate and will also be sold to the general public.”
