MSSN targets 5000 delegates at 100th IVC in Epe
This year’s IVC, which marked the 100th edition, is slated to hold between December 21st 2015 and January 1st 2016, at the Human Capital Development Centre (HCDC), Epe, Lagos.
The President (Amir) of the MSSN Lagos, Mallam Saheed Ashafa, said the camp is expected to have no fewer than 5,000 delegates that are expected to be empowered spiritually and academically through soul inspiring lectures, motivational discussion on character building and memorisation of Quran among others.
He explained that the theme of the 100th IVC, ‘The Basis’, was selected because of the utmost need for Muslims and Nigerians to re-asses their actions for desired growth.
He said, “Our plan for this year is to have nothing less than 5000 delegates that will be impacted with Islamic teachings, which should aid the development of the nation at large. The camping programme is billed to convey Muslim youths and impart in them moral, spiritual and academic knowledge.
“This edition of the camp marks the 100th IVC of society and we are making a historical progress by holding it on our HCDC Epe, Lagos State. Apart from that, we will be streaming activities on the camp site live through our Youtube Channel. To register, delegates are expected to purchase pin and then log on to camp.mssnlagos.net to complete their registration form.”
Ashafa, however, recommended that there was the need for Nigeria to return to the basis if the country must experience growth that would benefit the citizenry.
Adding that, the contribution of MSSN to the national development are enormous and these include serving as a potent tool of national unity and cohesion. While the society has remained a pressure group working for the advancement of the interests of Muslims and Islam.
Ashafa noted, the mandate of the society in Lagos is to inculcate leadership skills and management training in our youth in accordance with divine injunctions.
