The National Council of Muslim Youth Organisations (NACOMYO) and the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) have called on past members to give back to the organisations to improve their service to humanity.
The National President of NACOMYO, Alhaji Kamaldeen Akintunde and National Amir of MSSN, Muhammad Jamil Muhammad, made this call in Gusau while receiving three mini buses donated by the Walin Shinkafi of Zamfara State, Prof. Abdullahi Muhammad Shinkafi, at his official resident.
Akintunde who spoke on behalf of the two organisations appreciated the gesture of Shinkafi, adding that the donation should be a challenge to his contemporaries who had benefited from the organisations in the past.
“This donation is a challenge to your contemporaries who have been spooned by MSSN and NACOMYO, it is a charitable, benevolent and at the same time exemplary, and only hope that others will emulate your commitment to the society that build you.”
“This gesture is more or less like a demonstration of your commitment to the cause of Allah and show of dedication to the service of humanity and it is also an appreciation of efforts of MSSN and NACOMYO in your upbringing and who you are today,” Akintunde said.
He promised Prof. Shinkafi that the organisations would ensure judicious utilisation of the vehicles and apply the best management culture to ensure their longevity and in order not to defeated the purpose for which it was donated.
While officially presenting the vehicles to the beneficiaries, Prof. Shinkafi who is also the Zamfara’s Secretary to the State Government, said the donation was an appreciation of the organisations role in his life.
“I can never forget the impact of MSSN and NACOMYO on me. When I was offered admission into the university in 1983, we don’t know where to start and who to follow.”
“If not for the training and life saving intervention we got from these organisations, it would have been a different story today.
Professor Shinkafi said the meeting of the national leaders of MSSN and NACOMYO and donation of vehicles is one of his own ways of strengthening relationship with his beneficiaries and giving back to the society.
The Zamfara SSG later presented the keys and documents of the vehicles to the national leaders of NACOMYO, MSSN and the Sokoto Area Unit of MSSN.
The vehicles include a Ford Galaxy and two Volkswagen Saharan Buses.
