SATURDAY 11TH MARCH, 2017
Mr. Chairman………. Members Of The High Table, Sister Schools Present, The Out Gone Executives, Invited Guest, Friends from the Media, Ladies And Gentlemen, All Protocols Duly Observed.
With the best salutation of peace, of mercy, and the greeting of people of Jannah, I greet you all…Assalaamu……….
I am very grateful for the great opportunity given me, on this great day, to serve the great ummah that is the ummah of the great prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
I would like to first of all express my profound gratitude and appreciation to the
‘decision making body’, that is the Electoral Commission (EC) for their trust and confidence in us to lead Ghana Muslim Students Association. There is the saying that “to whom much is given, much is expected”. I therefore assured you that, we shall never let you down.
Mr. Chairman, let me also thank the out gone executives for their wonderful work done. Haven worked under the just ended administration, I know how tedious and laborious it is to serve such a noble association. But they persevered and ran their term of office successful. I therefore thank them for their tenacious behavior.
Even though you have handed over, we still extend our hand to you for guidance and ideas. Despite the fact that we are coming with new ideas, we still believe that, even though the new broom sweeps well but the old one knows the corners. Once again I say thank you and may your effort be weightier in the scale.
Mr. Chairman, GMSA is embarking on a project. This has been one of the challenges of Muslims on campus. That is our mosques project. In our quest to continue and carry the project faster, this administration intends to create a committee known as the Mosque Planning Committee. The committee shall be responsible for carrying the activities of the mosque project.
To the general Ummah Mr. Chairman, I want to inform you that, this administrationjust as previous ones-is all inclusive administration. GMSA is not for the executives, it is for you the members. We shall constantly count on you for support and ideas. We therefore appeal that you always give us the necessary support when the need arises. Let us not sit back and watch, let us be part of every single activity that is running in the association. Our doors are always open for constructive criticisms and suggestions.
I thank everyone present here and all those who contributed to the success of today’s memorable transitional process of our beloved association. May Allah bless GMSA, may Allah bless UDS, and may Allah bless Ghana.
