BoT, stakeholders affirm Oloyede as YOUMBAS president

THE Young Muslim Brothers and Sisters of Nigeria (YOUMBAS) has declared that it has no intention of introducing the post of the national chairman, noting that its constitution only recognises the president as the national leader of the organisation.

YOUMBAS, which is an affiliate of the World Assembly of Muslim Youths, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, also affirmed that Alhaji Abdul-Fatah Oloyede remains its national president and that its permanent national headquarters is Ibadan, Oyo State.

The resolutions were contained in a communique after a Board of Trustees (BoT)/stakeholders meeting of the organisation which was held at its national headquarters, Oja’ba, Ibadan, on 30 April, 2019, a copy of which was made available to the Nigerian Tribune.

In the communique, signed by the national president, Alhaji Abdul-Fatah Oloyede, YOUMBAS implored Muslims to use the opportunity of the ongoing Ramadan fast to pray for the peace and development of the country.

The organisation congratulated those who were victorious in the last general election and advised those who lost out in the contests not to see the situation as the end of their political careers.

It, again, felicitated with President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on their re-election and commended the president for approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage for workers.

According to YOUMBAS, the development will not only alleviate the sufferings of the workers; it will also enhance their productivity.

Present at the meeting included Alhaji Abdul-Fatah Oloyede, Alhaji Abdul-Fatah Abdul-Azeez (Lagos State, General Secretary), Alhaji Musa Tlorunju (Ondo State), Chief Agboola Abdul-Rasheed (Osun State), Alhaji Mumakal Unagha (Delta State), Alhaji Musa Dambaba (Sokoto State), Alhaji Abubakar Ajibade (Ekiti State), Alhaji Ismail Balogun (Ogun State), Brother Tajudeen Adesina (Osun State) and Alhaji Tajudeen Layonu (Oyo State).
