Ribadu lauds community-led Islamic Centre project in Yola

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has commended his community, Bako Ward of Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa, for the ongoing construction of an Islamic Centre Complex.

Ribadu gave the commendation in Yola on Wednesday, after inspecting the ongoing project, which consists of a mosque, Islamic learning centre and other facilities.

He commended members of the community and other philanthropists who worked for the realisation of the project.

He called for more efforts and financial support to enable completion of the complex, ‘which is currently at 80 per cent completion.’

The NSA advised members of the community, particularly the youths, to use the complex, when completed, as a rallying point and to advance learning for their educational growth and development.

‘We complain a lot about eroding values. A lot of it is because we have abandoned proper learning and inculcating morals in our young ones.

‘I hope this place will help address that,’ he said.

He pledged to suppor
t the project to meet the aspiration of the community.

Alhaji Ahmadu Baminda, a community leader and member of the Mosque Project Committee, explained that Ribadu was invited to the project site to see the community’s efforts and to seek his support.

The goal, according to him, is to galvanise more support to ensure the completion of the project.

‘We appreciate all you are doing as an illustrious member of this community.

‘We hope that you will help us so that the dream of our community to have a befitting Islamic centre is realised,’ he said.
