A 13-MEMBER Board of Patrons has been inaugurated to guide the activities of the Ghana Muslim Students Association (GMSA).

The Board members include Alhaji Baba Jamal, Hon Alhassan Azona, Mr Umar Saeed, Sheikh Salman Mohammed, Sheikh Abdul Nasirudeen, Mr Mustapha Hamid and Sheik Dr Amin Bonu.

The rest include Sheikh Amin Bamba, Hajia Samia, Hajia Habiba Tanko, Dr Mohammes Kamil Mohammed and Mr Adam Baba Musah.

Addressing the board members, the Chief Patron, Shiehk Ishaaq Ibrahim Nuamah, urged the new board members to put in their best and carry out their responsibilities to help the association attain its objectives.

He added that as members who have experience and knowledge about society, they should do well to impact the knowledge they have on the youth so that they would emulate their footsteps in future.

The National President of GMSA, Mr Rabiu Mohammed, pleaded that the patrons in their own way help to support and raise funds to move and upgrade the image and reputation of the association.

A Deputy Minister of Women and Children Affairs, Hajia Hawawu Boya Gariba, urged Muslims to do well in addressing the high levels of poverty, unemployment, crime, indiscipline, violence against women and children and moral corruption among others that affect them as Muslims.

“The net effect of all these phenomena on the Muslim Ummah is an increase in human suffering and a relegation of Islam to the background. We have lost our place of pride amongst the community of Nations because of this backwardness,” she explained.

She also urged the newly inaugurated patrons to help re-engineer the vision, mission, and values of GMSA and also give guidance on policy direction which would help project the image of the association.
