AHIC 2006- Amir calls for politicians' responsibility

The Annual Higher Institution Convention organised by the male wing of the Ahmadi Muslim Students' Association, Nigeria for the year 2006 held between Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November, 2006 at the campus of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, with theme "Politics and National Security: The Role of Religion". The programme which was well attended by both male and female members of the Association was chaired by the Amir (National President) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Nigeria, Alhaji Dr. Moshud Adenrele Fashola.

In his address, Dr. Fashola noted that the problem with Nigeria is that the leaders take the people for a ride and that they lie with impunity. He said that most of them are yet to realise how important it is to be true to the vows they make to the people and stand by the oath of office to which they swear.

He further noted that religious leaders have a duty in speaking against perceived wrongdoing by the politicians as he called on the politicians not to see clinching political positions as a do-or-die affair.

High points of the programme include moving speeches by Barrister AbdulLateef Owoade, Professor Erhamen, and Professor Olorode. Participants also discussed issues that involve them.
