STOP ARMY RECRUITMENT AND NYSC CAMP IN RAMADAN!!!

Assalamu Alaikum.

The Da’awa Coordination Council of Nigeria (DCCN), an umbrella body in Nigeria for Da’awah Organizations/Institutions that include, National Council of Muslims Youth Organizations, Muslims Students Society, Islamic Education Trust, National Education Trust, Council of Ulam’a; Council of Da’awah and Welfare of Coverts, Jama’atu Nasril Islam, Women in Da’awah, Muslims Sister’s Organization, Islamic Medical Association, World Muslims Assembly, Adabiyyah Kamaliya among others.

Wishes to remind Nigeria Government and its Parastatals such as the Nigeria Army and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) that Muslims are part of Nigeria and indeed constitute majority of its population.

The Council finds it imperative to issue this statement due to insensitivity of the Government and its Agencies on National Programmes and activities that concern all Nigerians; a typical example is the 76th Nigeria Army Regular Recruits Intake, Zonal Screening Exercise from 27th May-9th June 2017 in Ramadan 1438. Similarly, the NYSC is holding another Orientation Camp from 27th May – 17th June, 2017. This action will subject the Muslim Candidates and Corps members to unnecessary hardship and divert their attention from the required attention of every Muslim in Ramadan of spiritual attention/dedication. Participants may have to stop fasting or break it or fail to qualify in the Camp activities. This kind of Camp has never and will never be fixed in Easter or Christmas festivals. We cannot understand why only Muslim sensitivities will be treated with lack of consideration.

Therefore, we call on the Acting President His Excellency Professor Yemi Osinbajo to immediately prevail on the Nigerian Army and the NYSC to stop the Camps and shift the dates till after Ramadan. Failure to do so, may lead to our advising Muslim leadership in Nigeria to call on Muslims to boycott the Camps and any other National activities of this nature that involve Muslims in Nigeria in Ramadan.

We equally call on the leadership of the National Assembly to halt the Camp and call to order the leadership of the Nigeria Army and the NYSC.

Ramadan: Muslim groups want army recruitment, NYSC camp shifted

Ramadan: Muslim groups want army recruitment, NYSC camp shifted

The Da’awah Coordination Council of Nigeria (DCCN), an umbrella body in Nigeria for Da’awah Organizations and Institutions, has called for the shifting of army recruitment and NYSC orientation exercises because of the Ramadan fasting.

The position of the Islamic organisations was contained in the text of the press conference jointly signed by the National President and National Secretary-General Muhammad Lawal Maidoki and Engr. Ahmad M.Y. Jumba respectively in Kaduna, yesterday.

The groups said the 76th Nigeria Army Regular Recruits Intake, Zonal Screening Exercise from 27th May-9th June 2017, from which successful candidates would be shortlisted and the NYSC Orientation Camp starting from 27th May – 17th June, 2017 fall within Ramadan.

“This action will subject the Muslim candidates and corps members to unnecessary hardship and divert their attention from the required attention of every Muslim in the Holy month. Participants may have to stop fasting or break it or fail to qualify in the camp activities. We cannot understand why only Muslim sensitivities will be treated with lack of consideration.”

The groups urged Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to intervene for the exercises to shifted.
