The Osun State Muslim Community (OSMC) has commenced activities marking the new Hijrah year 1443 celebration in the state.

The President of OSMC, Alhaji Mustapha Olawuyi at a press conference in Osogbo on Sunday highlighted events line up for the new Hijrah year celebration.

Olawuyi who spoke through OSMC First Vice Chairman, Alhaji Sodiq Bola Bello said the celebration is very significant and worth it but he noted that the new year would not be celebrated with the usual funfare because of COVID-19 pandemic.

He said “This year’s programme like yuletide of the past would not be celebrated with funfare due to COVID’19 pandemic.”

He said a Qur’an competition will hold Monday, August 2 at OSMC Hall followed by a colloquium on Wednesday with the theme: “Curbing Insecurity in Nigeria: The Roles of Religious Bodies.”

He said a Jumu’at Service at the Central Mosque, Oja-Oba, Osogbo will hold on Friday while a Youth Forum will hold on Saturday where young Muslims would learn various vocational skills, including how to produce liquid soap and body cream.

He added that a stakeholders’ meeting will hold on Monday, August 9, 2021 which is Muharam 1, 1443AH and that Hijrah Lecture with the theme: “Insecurity Level in Nigeria; Tilting Towards Anarchy: Islamic Solutions” to be delivered by Professor Hamid Sanni, Vice Chancellor of Fountain University, Osogbo.

Oba Abdul-Rasheed Ayotunde Olabomi, the Aragbiji of Iragbiji will be the royal father of the day while Grand Imam of Osun, Shaykh Musa Animasahun would be the spiritual Father of the Day, he said.

Speaking on the state of the nation, Olawuyi said “we would want to reiterate that the Federal Government should not relent its efforts in fighting terrorism, kidnappings, and fighting bandits.”

“The community commends the effort of the Federal Government’s commitment with the purchase of the state of the art military equipment to prosecute the insurgencies, it is our prayer that Allah grants our soldiers success.”

“The security is every body’s business, Nigerians should be security conscious and assist the government in exposing miscreants and mischievous elements in the society.”

“The agitation to breakup Nigeria is uncalled for. The federating units of the Federal Republic of Nigeria should see strength in unity and consolidation of Nigeria forefathers’ achievements.”

“All the segments of our government are called upon to have roundtable discussion with all the aggrieved units and a way forward towards a formidable and united Nigeria”.

Calls for secession: Lai Mohammed identifies key reasons responsible

Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture has stayed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will loot the country’s treasury dry if they are given another opportunity to be in power.

This was stated by Mohammed while speaking in Tanzania, in reaction to the controversy surrounding the return of N122.4 million by members of the PDP’s national working committee (NWC).

“If a man can steal from himself, he will steal without any restrain from other people. The problem is that PDP will never change and like they say, a leopard will never change its spots. When PDP lost elections in 2015, they admitted that they had learnt their lessons, but obviously, they have learnt nothing.

God forbid, if they ever have access to public purse again, they will leave no kobo there. We know what we met when we assumed office in 2015, we are still wailing from it. We hope Nigerians have now seen from this scandal the intention of PDP if they ever have access to public treasury.”

Mohammed said the party should be questioned on the source of the funds shared, adding that as a member of the NWC of the APC, no money was ever paid into his account.

“Never did I remember that any form of money, call it, accommodation, or whatsoever, was ever paid into the account of any member of the NWC of either ACN or APC” he said.

Mahmood Yakub

INEC chairman Mahmood Yakubu on Thursday reiterated that votes cast by the electorate would determine the outcome of the 2023 general elections.

Mr Yakubu, who spoke at the sixth annual conference of the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP), also called for the fight against fake news while speaking on ‘2023 Elections: Managing the Process for Credible Outcome’ in Lagos.

The INEC chief, who commended the leadership and membership of GOCOP for extending an invitation to him, said, “As the commission is doing its best to ensure a credible process, we also appeal to the media for continuous partnership. Managing the electoral process for credible outcome is the responsibility of all of us.”

He added, “As campaign activities get underway, the media will continue to play an important role. A lot of the activities will take place in the media, of which the new media is a critical player. We must continue to work together against the spread of fake news, misinformation and disinformation that seek to create or exacerbate tension or de-legitimise processes and outcomes.”

According to him, GOCOP must lead a network or alliance of stakeholders to curb fake news engineered by unpatriotic individuals.

“Fake news is a threat to national security, and all hands must be on deck to check it. Managing this process requires, in part, concerted efforts. We have noticed that your members have so far steered clear of fake news. We urge you to do more,” the INEC chairman stressed. “GOCOP should come out strongly in the battle against fake news, which is clearly a challenge to the electoral process going forward.”
