NSN elects new officers, ends 20-year leadership tussle
THE new chairman of an Islamic organisation, Nurudeen Society of Nigeria (NSN), Kaduna branch, Mohammed Tajudeen Mohammed, has said that the mission of his executive committee is to restore the glory of the organisation.
He said aggressive membership drive and modernisation of the organisation topped the agenda of his leadership.
Mohammed stated this last weekend in Kaduna during an interview with newsmen after he and other newly elected executive members of the organisation were inaugurated.
The association had been embroiled in leadership crisis for the last 20 years, leading to its fractionalisation.
However, the new chairman pledged to reunite all the aggrieved members.
“I can assure you that the crisis is over. What happened today is evidence that nobody is ready for crisis any longer.
“All we had then are gone; the nursery, primary and secondary schools have all gone because of the crisis. We used to be able to boast of over 200 pupils in our Islamic schools but today, we hardly have 40 pupils. So, our priority is to bring back all the activities of Nurudeen that are gone,” Mohammed explained.
The national president of the organisation, Abdur-Rasaq Sodiq, called for unity among members and urged the new officers to see their positions as an opportunity to serve and consolidate on the legacies of past leaders of the organisation.
