Yoruba Indigenes Foundation urges wealthy Yoruba Muslims to give to less privileged 

CITIZENS COMPASS– As Muslims all over are in the mood of Eid-el-Fitr, Dr Olumide Aderibole, the President of Yoruba Indigenes Foundation, has called on all wealthy Yoruba Muslims, to sustain the momentum of giving charitable goods and services, to their less privileged Muslim brothers and sisters.

In a statement signed by Mr Sanjo Olawuyi, the Director of Communications and Strategies of Yoruba Indigenes Foundation. Aderibole said that God almighty will reward them adequately if they can sustain the charitable gesture.

He said the charity could be in the form of soft loans, grants, and distribution of palliatives to mention but a few.

He said, “The charitable scheme could be in the form of noninterest soft loans, little grants, distribution of food items and provisions, skills acquisition, settlement of little debts, internship, coaching, mentorship, sponsorship, scholarship, free consultancy services, networking, connecting, training, seminars, etc.

“Obviously, the government alone cannot alleviate the current economic challenges facing the country.

“If these public-spirited Muslims can work together, and constitute a movement, which will arrest, attest, address and redress the prevailing narrative of hardship facing the nation.

“These suggested individual initiatives, will cumulatively go a long way, in not only enhancing the living standard of their fellow brothers and sisters, it will likewise reduce crime rate in the society, it will curtail illegal migration from Nigeria, it will check brain drains and reduce health challenges in the land.”
