For her philanthropic gestures toward the uplift of Islam and the society in general, the Chief Executive Officer, Kayrom Lee Gym and Fitness Center, Ambassador Rahmat Romoke Ayinde was on Sunday decorated as one of the matrons of Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, MSSN, Oyo State Area Unit.

Amb. Ayinde, who is also the Iyalaje Adini of Oyo State, was decorated alongside a foremost Professor, Abdulrasheed Aderinoye, Professor Abudganny Raji, Professor Hamdalat Olaniya and Engineer Idris Adeoye for their immense contributions to Islam and humanity in general to further strengthen the activities of the society at the unveiling of the One Billion Naira Islamic Centre and the investiture held at the Islamic Centre, University of Ibadan.

Speaking at the program, the guest lecture at the event, AbdulAfiz Oladosu, a Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies Department, University of Ilorin, said the MSSN, which was established 70 years ago to foster unity among Muslim students and empower them spiritually to make them more steadfast on the righteous path while stating that the association has not measured up in terms of development.

“It is our collective effort as Muslims to help develop the society to reach their desired goal. Since inception, MSSN has no place to call its own and now that we are ready to do such, we must all encourage them by donating generously to make their dreams became reality,” the erudite Professor said.

Chairman on the occasion, the Senator representing Oyo Central, Yunus Akintunde, who was represented by a Professor of Agriculture, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Abideen Olaniyan noted that the society had contributed in no small measure to the propagation of Islam, adding that, there is still room for improvement particularly, when the proposed Islamic Center is completed.

Speaking after the investiture, elated Amb. Ayinde said the gesture of MSSN to honor her will prompt her to do more because she did not know that some people are noticing what she was doing and she, however, advised all well-meaning Nigerians especially Muslims to always help youths’ societies like this so that their future will be bright.

“I’m happy about this honour because it will act as a spring board for me to do more. I commend the leadership of MSSN for their doggedness towards propagating of Islam and I will advise them to take the society to all schools in the state. I promise to continue to support the Society with all that Allah has given me,” she said.

Highpoint of the event was the cutting of the 70th Anniversary Cake of MSSN which was donated by Ambassador Romoke Ayinde.
