Ameer of the zone, Malam Adamu Tsoho Jos was the speaker at the occasion, where he made inspiring speech meant to encourage members to re-double their effort in doing what is expected of them within the cardinal objective of the Movement.
He called on them to exhibit high level sacrifice, total submission and demonstrate exemplary conduct while dealing with people.
He lamented lack of pro-activeness and lack of concern on issues relating to the Movement, while calling for collective effort for collective success.
Malam Adamu Tsoho urged Brothers and Sisters to be among the few who can stand the test of time in the discharge of their responsibilities.
“The first step is to look at oneself, assess yourself to ascertain whether you meet up with the expectations on you. Are you as the Leader wants you to be? Are you in tune with his teachings? You also assess the level of your contribution to the progress of the Movement”, he added.
He reminded people on their responsibilities of regular payment of dues, as part of the contribution to the progress of the Movement.
Ameer of Bauchi, Malam Ahmad Yashi who spoke earlier answered questions and noted contributions offered by participants.
Responding to the demand for the establishment of a secondary school, Malam Ahmad Yashi explained that plan to that was in the pipeline as an expanse plot of land has been acquired.
As part of the needed pro-activeness, he formed a committee on the spot to oversee the possibility of establishing the school, headed by Dauda Yashi and Yusuf Tigrimas.
Some of the suggestions and contributions made by the participants at the occasion were collated for further deliberation and consideration.
