Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Ondo District has organised a youth peace symposium and award presentation at Adegbemile Cultural Centre, Akure on 7th January, 2019.
The theme of the symposium “Peaceful Co-existence: A Veritable Tool for Economic and Social Cultural Development” was delivered by Muallim Muhammad Waiz Apooyin.
In his lecture, Muallim Apooyin condemned the pitiable condition in the society in relation to the disunity and nepotistic rivalry, socio-cultural enmity and lack of peaceful coexistence among culturally diverse and multi-ethnic Nigerian society.
He however urged policy makers and most importantly all Nigerians at large to foster the much-craved national cohesion which will usher in peaceful co-existence and ultimately culminate into a glorious economic and socio-cultural development.
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Infrastructure, Engr Aminu AbdulRahman, thanked the Majlis members for the award and stressed his administration’s commitment to the welfare of the Muslim communities in the state.
He noted that a large number of people in the state are Muslims and therefore enjoined their continuous support for the administration.
At the end of the event, awards were presented to the Sadr, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Nigeria, Engr. Saheed Aina; the Executive Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu; former Qaideen in the state; Bro Uthman Malik and Bro Mushood Jimoh, who have contributed immensely to the development of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya activities in the State.
Dignitaries who were present at the event were: Muavin Sadr, Alh. Isiaq Popoola; Muhtamin Tarbiyya, Bro. Taofeek Ajibade and Muhtamin Ishaat, bro. Mujeeb Oniyide.
