Sultan of Sokoto slams NYSC for resuming orientation camp during Ramadan

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Abubakar Sa’ad, has condemned the decision of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, to continue with its orientation camps for youth corp members during the Ramadan fast.

The organization also called on the Nigerian Army to postpone its planned recruitment exercise until Muslims have concluded their fasting period. JNI said that NYSC continuing the orientation program and the Nigerian Army conducting recruitment exercise during Ramadan would put Muslim faithful who are fasting at a disadvantage.
“This is because the prospective corps members would be at disadvantage to their faith and other camp activities. The council also calls on the authority of the Nigerian Army to postpone the intended recruitment exercise until after Ramadan to avoid putting prospective candidates at a disadvantage," JNI said.
The decision was arrived at by JNI at its recently-concluded annual central council meeting in Kaduna, which held on May 21 and 22. Vanguard reports that the JNI also called on the NYSC to honour a previous agreement entered by the two parties for camp activities to be placed on hold during Ramadan.

Xerxes said...

nysc has a schedule to follow that is not affected by any religious activity whatsoever. if the muslims are in a holy month, then let them postpone their nysc till next year.

This guys should be told that Nigeria is not a Muslim Country. They have the option to choose between religious activities and government functions and activities.

Contrary to what you believe, Islam is infact part of the Nigerian Constitution. Section 6 subsection 5. Consideration needs to given. In such case where it is deemed inconvenient, it should be announced.

Foolish sultan and dats why Sanusi has sense more than all of u northerners put together. When u are fasting u close from work early, u refuse to go to work, u become so lazy meanwhile u wake up by 4 to eat. Nonsense!!! Churches like mfm fast for 70days without bothering d country, same with RCCG(40days) and we go about our normal activities. Hypocritical people

GALORE said...

The sultan is uninformed. The kitchen in camp prepares meals for the muslims during the fast. That is the 6am and the meal after the sun goes down.
NySc camp batch B had always fallem into the ramadam period so why the noise now. As a corper in 2009, during camp ramadam was ongoing. E wo in wahala. Hisssssss

i think we should all learn to respect each others faith that will help in preventing religious crises

we seriously need to watch our way of life in this country because one idiot that can even understand what the Bible of Quran says will just open mouth and talk rubbish in the name of religion supremacy

Go and form your Islamic republic then. If it is a religion of peace, then it should not make other religions uncomfortable

Thank you as I suppose you mean that Muslims must learn to abide by what operates now and stop pushing islamisation on us all. When I was in secondary school in the 90s, girls covered their heads with berets but now Muslim head covering is allowed in schools. Can they not do this outside secondary school? Muslims need to be more tolerant.

If muslem are fasting, u will not hear word again o especially pple from d north. Abeg their fasting should be btw them and their God not to pass the pain to others

nunulicious said...

Nigeria is NOT a muslim country. Our constitution and our activities superceed any religious activity. simple.

FRANCIS NDUDI said...

This is absolutely not the best thought for the sultan. Measures are always adjusted like preparing before 6pm. This is a callous statement
