COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AT THE END OF THE 31ST ANNUAL NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE FEDERATION OF MUSLIM WOMEN’S ASSOCIATIONS IN NIGERIA (FOMWAN) HELD IN LAGOS FROM 3RD - 6TH SAFAR, 1438 AH (3RD – 6TH NOVEMBER, 2016)

 

 

Preamble

 

A three-day National Conference of the Federation of Muslim Women’s Associations in Nigeria (FOMWAN) took place at the University of Lagos, Akoka from Thursday, November 3rd to Sunday, November 6th, 2016. The theme of the Conference was: “Development for Peace and Security.” The sub themes were:

 

  • Corruption: Implication for National Security

  • Impact of Religion on Peaceful Coexistence

  • Peaceful Building and Post Conflict Recovery

  • Women and Youths as Agents for Peace and Security

 

Over 2000 participants drawn from the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja were in attendance.

 

The Conference was attended by dignitaries from all over the country including the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR who was represented by the Executive Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

 

Other eminent personalities were Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule, Lagos State Deputy Governor, who also represented the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, Alhaji Lateef Okunnu SAN, CON, Former Federal Commissioner for Works and Housing, Prof. Tajudeen Gbadamosi, Chairman, Lagos State Muslim Community, Provost, Ansar-ud-deen College of Education, Isolo, Lagos and Retired Hon. Justice Abubakar Olorunnibe. Oba Rilwan Aremu Akinolu was also represented at the ceremony.

 


 

Resolutions reached at the end of the Conference:

 

Corruption and National Development: The Conference notes that the present state of the country is as a result of the corruptive tendencies in the Nigerian society. It is believed that the real solutions to addressing these problems lie in the laws of Allah which forbids criminal activities including economic crimes and Illegal acquisition of wealth.

 

FOMWAN commends the efforts of the Federal Government in the fight against corruption and therefore, calls on the government at all levels to diligently prosecute all criminal cases to a logical conclusion.

 

 

Unity, Peace and Security: The Conference notes that the disunity in the country is brought about by too much allegiance to ethnic and religious issues. This is not acceptable in Islam as all human beings are regarded as creatures of God and should be treated with equity, fairness and justice.

 

The Conference also notes that poverty, injustice and selfishness of people in positions of authority are responsible for the insecurity we face in the country.

 

The Conference therefore implores all Nigerians to stop discrimination on the basis of ethnicity and religion.

 

Government is required to mainstream peace education at all levels.

 

 

Religion and Peaceful Co-existence: The conference notes that the family unit remains the bedrock of proper child upbringing; and as such urges parents and guardians to ensure that proper Islamic upbringing is given to their children and wards.

 

The Conference identifies cultism as one of the evils of the society and calls on parents and teachers to monitor their children/wards and ensure that they steer clear of the menace of cultism.

 

FOMWAN also calls for strong collaboration between parents and all stakeholders in shaping the moral disposition of youths.

 

FOMWAN believes that Islamic way of life is the antidote to all evil activities and so enjoins citizens of the country to use the teaching of Islam to promote peaceful co-existence.

 

FOMWAN observes with concern, the escalating rate of poverty among Nigerians as a result of the global recession but also acknowledges the effort of the Federal government’s intervention to reduce poverty through micro-credit scheme. The association however appeals to the Federal government to make the intervention accessible to all by relieving prospective beneficiaries of the burden of paying interest.

 

 

Mode of Dressing

 

The Conference notes with serious concerns discriminatory attitude against the use of Hijab by school girls and some Muslim professionals.

 

FOMWAN affirms the need to allow young girls/female professionals to dress in accordance with the tenets of Islam. It enjoins parents/guardians and teachers to serve as role models in proper dressing to conform with our cultural and religious dictates.

 

 

Appreciation

 

FOMWAN appreciates the contribution of His Excellency Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the Governor of Lagos State, Prof. Rahamon Bello, Vice-Chancellor University of Lagos for their support in making the Conference a success.

 

 

Hajia Amina Omoti

 

National Amirah

 

Dr. (Mrs.) Umaimah Momoh

National Secretary
