Ansar-ud-Deen seeks regular exercise to keep fit
Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADSN), Akoka Branch has embarked on a fitness exercise to raise the health consciousness of people and also ensure their members keep fit.
The annual Health Walk featured members walking from Akoka through Bariga back to Akoka.
It was also used to sensitise the people on the activities of the association.
In a chat with reporters, the branch’s Vice-Chairman, Alhaji Moshood Adewale Mustapha said the health walk is a yearly event, to facilitate the health and fitness of members and the general public.
“The health serves a lot of purposes, apart from facilitating the walk and welfare of our members; we also use it to showcase ourselves to the general public and also showcase our project as part of our community social responsibility
For instance, we are planning to build an ultra-modern hospital and a secondary school that will cater for our members and the general public,” he said.
According to him, “If you want to be wealthy, then you have to tread the part of being healthy. You need to know your physical status and your health status and this is one of the things that the group has been doing over the years to ensure that Nigerians keep fit in order to be wealthy.”
ADSN Akoka Branch’s Financial Secretary Alhaja Ganiyat Toluwaloju said a healthy lifestyle is an antidote to healthy living.
“We encourage our members to keep fit and maintain spiritually and other ways,” she said.
She advised people to keep engaging in an exercise in order to be fit
“Most people don’t engage in exercises. Most people prefer to go on the bike. They hardly walk and it is not good for their health.”
“We have realised that if people don’t exercise, they will have a big problem in life, hence the reason we decided to make sure our members engage in a walk to keep fit. The gym is quite expensive for a layman; we have decided that our members must shed fat annually. By engaging in this walk, they will shed fat, sweat out and borne fat and at the end of the day, they will regain their health,” she said.
Alhaja Toluwaloju said the proposed hospital will benefit the public.
“We realise that good health facilities are not within reach and quite expensive, so we prefer to have a hospital, not just a clinic where members will be able to benefit more,” she said.
