THE UNILAG Muslim Alumni (UMA) has expressed optimism that Nigeria would soon come out from the current economic recession with the sincerity of current Federal Government.
In a release signed by the National President, Alhaji Akeeb S. Oladokun, the Alumni said: “It’s the promise of Almighty Allah that ‘after adversity comes ease’.
While congratulating Muslims worldwide and Nigeria in particular on the occasion of the new Hijrah year 1438, Alhaji Oladokun urged Nigerians to be patient and hopeful and allow the government of the day implement the Change Agenda, aimed at turning the country around.
He said that human nature is usually initially averse to change, but the outcome of it is always more beneficial to all and sundry. Annually, the Celebration of the New Islamic Year reminds us of the landmark achievement of Islam when the prophet overcame all hindrances, hatred and acrimonies and Islam eventually ruled the Arabian Peninsula. Thus, to all Muslims, whatever the current situation, it is always a passing moment.
The UNILAG Muslim Alumni is the umbrella body of all Muslim graduates form the University of Lagos, and is involved in several social responsibility activities including award of scholarships, entrepreneurial trainings, organization of socio-political programmes and spiritual activities.
Meanwhile, the Annual General Congress of the Alumni comes up on Sunday, October 9 2016 at the Central Mosque, College of Medicine, University of Lagos.
The Congress is the summit where the out-going national executive members give account of their stewardship and new officers are elected for the next two years.
