The National Council of Muslim Youth Organizations (NACOMYO), Osun State Chapter has stressed the need to assist young entrepreneurs with interest free loans to be able to start business.

This was contained in a communiqué issued and signed by Alhaji Babalola Abdul-Azeez after a 3-day state delegates conference held at NACOMYO Group of Schools, Igbona, Osogbo, Osun State, with the theme “Muslim Ummah and National Economy”.

At the end of the conference, Alhaji Jamiu Alani Adeyemi emerged as the new Coordinator of NACOMYO in Osun State.

While urging youths to shun illegal businesses, the organisation tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the loots recovered from corrupt public office holders and politicians are judiciously used to justify his anti-corruption efforts.

The group said the citizens are groaning over the current economic hardship and urged the federal government to ensure a quick turnaround in the nation’s economy so as to alleviate the suffering of the masses.

NACOMYO said it would be a double tragedy if the money recovered from the looters is not judiciously used, Daily Trust reports.

The group also emphasised the need to empower the youths, especially the graduates to enable them venture into profitable businesses and guide against youths restiveness.

“All recovered loots should be judiciously spent on projects that would alleviate the suffering of the downtrodden masses. That’s the only way the anti-corruption war of the federal government can be justified”.

“We also commend the federal government and the Nigeria Army and other security agencies on the success achieved so far in the war against the insurgents in the North East and we charged them not to relent until the terrorists are wiped out completely”.

NACOMYO also expressed delight over the judgements of the Osun State High Court and the Court of Appeal in Lagos which affirmed the right of Muslim Female students to use hijab on their school uniform and urged Muslim and Christians in the country to continue to live in peace.

Speaking at the event, Adeyemi stressed the need for every member to be actively involved in the activities of the Council so as to achieve its aims and objectives.
