The fundraising, slated for MUSCOYS’s permanent site at the Aerodrome GRA, Samonda, Ibadan, will start from 10.00 a.m.

Other dignitaries expected at the event include the Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland, Alhaji Dawud Akinola, other Islamic title holders as well as members of the League of Imams and Alfas in Yorubaland.

Sanni said the multipurpose centre would be the first of its kind in Nigeria and West Africa as it contains all facilities for the use of the Muslim Ummah.

According to the Muslim leader, although located in Ibadan, the centre belongs to all Muslims and all Muslim groups have been invited to be part of the “history-making occasion.”
