Nigeria: Offa Monarch Urges Nasfat to Complete Aseese Islamic Centre

The leadership of Nasrul Lahi l Fatih Society of Nigeria (NASFAT) has been urged to urgently develop its landed property at Aseese along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Olofa of Offa, Oba Miftaudeen Gbadamosi (Esuwoye II) made this appeal during a courtesy visit by the President of NASFAT, Kamil Bolarinwa to his palace in Kwara State.

The monarch observed a weak presence of Islamic organisations along that axis, hence he charged NASFAT to live up to its vision as a pace setting Muslim society.

Bolarinwa paid the courtesy visit as part of his itinerary of a four-day working visit to the Kwara zone of the society.

The NASFAT president had earlier paid similar courtesy visits to Elerin of Erin Ile, Oba Abdulganiyu Ajibola (Olusokun II); Onijagbo, Oba Salaudeen Fagbemi; Oba of Ajase Ipo; and Olomupo all in the same axis.

The NASFAT President's tour of Kwara Zone commenced in Ilorin with an interactive session with the stakeholders of the society. The meeting afforded Bolarinwa a first hand information about the issues of development and management in the Kwara zone.

In his keynote address during the interactive session, which took place at the Ilorin main branch of NASFAT, Bolarinwa expressed his gratitude to the leadership of the zone for the various impactful projects accomplished by the zone.

He also promised to address all the issues raised at the forum with dispatch.

The President seized the opportunity of the tour to visit other branches including Tanke branch.

The inauguration of the new branch of the society in Ijagbo as well as swearing in ceremony of officials that will pilot the affairs of the Ijagbo branch drew curtains on the four-day visit. The new officials were charged to fear Allah in the discharge of their duties.

The chairman of the event, Abdullateef Fagbemi advised the new executive to strive to further promote Islam through their activities in NASFAT.

The guest lecturer at the event, the Chief Imam of Offa, Sheikh Muideen Salman Hussein gave a thought provoking lecture on the essence of spending in the course of Allah.
