A Muslim student based group, the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit has urged the President-elect , Gen  Muhammad Buhari (rtd)and other elected politicians to fulfill their promises to Nigerians especially in the drive to make learning better.

This message was contained in a congratulatory message by the MSSN President, Kaamil Kalejaiye to the President elect and a newly elected House of Representatives member, Alhaji Jide Jimoh.

Emphasising the need for massive investment in the education sector, the MSSN President reminded Buhari of his promise to provide education for all Nigerian children and improve on the welfare of graduates on the National Youths Service corps (NYSC) scheme.

He said, “The election is also a clear manifestation of the power of the voices of people. However, we wish to remind the President Elect of the herculean task Nigerians have placed on his shoulders with its demanding responsibilities.

“Prior to this time, Nigerians have lost their voices in their demand for standard educational system and adequate provisions of social amenities which include stable power supply, provision of basic infrastructure?.

Quoting copiously from the Holy Qur’an he said, “Allah says, ‘…and fulfill the promise; surely (every) promise shall be questioned about.’ (Qur’an 17 Verse 34) and urged him to address the challenge of joblessness amidst the growing population in the country.

?”We also humbly remind the president elect to ameliorate the dangerous dimension youth unemployment has assumed in order to ameliorate societal violence by young people in our community,” he added.

Commending President Goodluck Jonathan’s statesmanship on the election outcome, leader of the Muslim students’ based group charged Buhari to maintain justice regardless of his religion, tribe and his undefined social and private distinctiveness.
