Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), University of Lagos branch, has set agenda for the newly elected leaders at all levels placing education and power on top.
The Muslim body believes that if education is well funded by government, it would allow the country achieve its quest to meet up with the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of Education For All (EFA).
President of the society, Is-haq Abdul Azeez, in a chat with Campus Square, stated further that power generation through the various alternative sources would aid sustainable growth, adding, “it would provide jobs for the masses and resuscitate the dead or dying sectors of the economy.”
The society also condemned the recent bombing of Nigerian Police Force Headquarters in Abuja, calling on security agencies to investigate this and other security threats to avoid future occurrence.
Meanwhile, the society began its propagation week tagged Daw’ah Week on Friday, 24 June, 2011 with the theme, The Straight Path.
