OAU Muslim Graduates Splash N6.99 Million On 113 Students

The Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association, UNIFEMGA, has awarded N6.99 million in scholarships to 113 students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

The association announced this in a communique issued by its President, Abdul-Fattah Olanlege, after its 2021 Annual Reunion Conference held at the University Central Mosque in Ile-Ife on Sunday.

The theme of the conference was: “Nigeria at a Crossroad: The Myths, The Facts, The Realities.”

Mr Olanlege said that the association had disbursed a total of N40 million to over 700 students of the institution since the scholarship was introduced in 2009/2010 session.

He said the association stressed the need to restructure the country in such a way that all sections of the country would have a sense of belonging.

According to him, the current Constitution has vested the total control of minerals, including oil on both land and water, in the Federal Government.

He further noted that in the 21st century, knowledge was the greatest capital which Nigeria must ensure was all encompassing in the choice of leaders at all levels and on all issues.

The association also noted the need for Nigerians to organise themselves and hold the leaders accountable at all levels.

“If the country is able to reach national consensus and communicate effectively with the citizens, the issue of insecurity, stagnating economy and bad governance, especially decay of institutions, endemic corruption and inability to manage diversity will be a thing of the past,” the communique said.

The association maintained that no meaningful change could take place and be sustained in the society if it was not driven by a set of core values.
