A panel set-up by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar and Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria (MUSWEN) may give verdict on leadership crisis rocking the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, Obafemi Awolowo University branch.

This is as  the panel reportedly called on all the affected stakeholders to come together and be one indivisible body.

This was one of the resolutions reached at the end of the seven-hour mediation meeting held with all the stakeholders at the MUSWEN Secretariat in Ibadan on Monday, a press statement made available to iWitness NG stated.

The meeting, which was presided over by the Executive Secretary of MUSWEN Prof. Daud Noibi, was sequel to series of petitions and counter petitions received by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar and MUSWEN on the same matter.

The Sultan, who doubles as the President- General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), had directed MUSWEN under the leadership of its Executive Secretary, Prof . Daud Noibi to find a lasting solution to the lingering crisis.

Having listened to all the invited stakeholders in the matter, Prof. Noibi said the inaugural meeting could not conclude on Monday but will give its ruling on Sunday April 23.

He, however, extracted the commitment of all the stakeholders to the three resolutions pending the final pronouncement of the panel on Sunday.

It read in part, “That there shall be only one MSSN in OAU, which shall belong to the hierarchical group of MSSN from branch level to National.”

“That all Muslims on campus must accept and recognise Prof. Abubakr Sanusi as the Chief Imam and Spiritual Head of Muslims on campus. Insulting and disparaging the person and office of the Imam is un-Islamic.’’

“That OAU Muslim Community shall be a united entity and all encompassing with the inclusion of all the Muslim Students on campus.’’

Stakeholders at the meeting were the OAU Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA) led by its National President, Engr. Waheed Odeyimka, OAU Muslim Community led by the Chief Imam, Prof. Abubakr Sanusi and Prof. Isiaka Aransi as well as the Akeem Idowu-led MSSN OAU branch and Rasheed Bakare group.

Others were the Osun State Muslim Community, MSSN B –Zone Amir led by Mushafau Alaran, MSSN Osun State Area Unit and Ife Muslim Community.

MUSWEN panelist was led by Prof. Noibi while Profs Muib Opeloye, AbdulAfees Oladosu, Ganiyu Raji, Drs Wole Abbas, Abideen Olaiya, Brothers Kamar Dairo, Lawal Uzamot and Kamaldeen Akintunde were members.
