A pioneer Muslim group, Fityanul Islam of Nigeria, FIN, will on Thursday launch a fund that would cater for thousands of orphans who lost their parents in the various terrorist attacks across the country.

The Deputy Secretary-General of the association, Dr Musa Muhammad Imam, who is also the Chairman of the National Organising Committee, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

According to him, the association will also launch a special fund whose proceeds would go into building an orphanage and a skills acquisition centre in Zaria, Kaduna State, to be named after the venerable Islamic leader, the late Sheikh Ibrahim Inyass.

Mr Imam said the launch, which was part of the association’s annual general meeting, would take place at the conference hall of the National Universities Commission, NUC, in Abuja.

He said elections into the national executive council of the association would also hold the next day.

Mr Imam noted that President Muhammadu Buhari would grace the event as the special guest of honour, while the vice-presidential candidate of the APC in the 2023 elections, Kashim Shettima, would serve as chairman of the occasion.

The deputy secretary general said the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, has been scheduled as the chief launcher while the Chief Imam of the National Mosque, Abuja, Prof. Ibrahim Maqari, would be the guest speaker.

He added that the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, would serve as the royal father of the day, while the spiritual fathers of the day are Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi and Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh.

The statement also said the chief host is the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammad Musa-Bello, who would be deputised by Senator Abu Ibrahim and the APC gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna State, Senator Uba Sani.

Mr Imam said he hoped the Muslim ummah would grace the occasion en masse for its immense benefits.
