NACOMYO is putting this year’s lecture together for the dual purpose of reminding the Ekiti Muslim community of their essence of living as well as honoring one of our best posthumously.
“To those of us who encountered Alhaji Sanni during his short sojourn in life, we can agree unanimously that he spent his life to propagate Islam and touch lives. A principled and incorruptible public servant, the late Muslim leader lived a life worthy of emulation and tried in his own little way to contribute his quota to the development of Islam.
Within and outside the Muslim community, the former Permanent Secretary proved that he was exceptional in promoting justice and fairness in society, an attribute that endeared him to millions of Ekiti people. As the symbol of this year’s event, we want our brothers and sisters in Ekiti and beyond to emulate him, promote Islam and impact lives.
“We brought nothing to this world and we will all leave at our appointed time with nothing, but our good deeds and service in the course of Islam will remain our touch bearers,” he said.
