Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih has commissioned an ultra-modern health centre in Ikorodu to ensure that people in the community have access to quality health facilities.

Speaking during the commissioning of the centre, the Chief Missioner of Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih Society, Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike, said that the society would continue to promote members and non-members’ well-being, by vigorously pursuing the health agenda of it’s HELD policy (Health, Education, Livelihood and Da’wah).

He said that the commissioning of an ultra-modern health centre built by NASFAT Ikorodu branch, held on July 24, 2022.

According to Onike, NASFAT, having realised that the government alone cannot provide all the social amenities for the citizenry, will continue to be a partner in progress with the government in ensuring that there is improvement in the wellbeing of the community.

He added that our Noble Prophet (PBUH) underscored the importance of health in our lives when he said: “There are two blessings which many people do not appreciate: health and leisure.” He (PBUH) also said: “No blessing other than faith is better than well-being.”

While commending the initiators of the laudable project, Onike prayed for all those who contributed to the building of the health centre, saying Allah will consider it as a recurring charity for them, going by the Hadith.

He further commended members of Ikorodu branch of the society for being among the branches that have established health centers, following the footsteps of Abidjan branch in Cote di voire, Osogbo branch and others.

The President of NASFAT, Mr Niyi Yusuf, said the society’s commitment is always, as a matter of necessity, to impact on the lives of Nigerians irrespective of their faith, tribe, colour, gender or creed, as demonstrated in the HELD agenda of the society.

He said that, though NASFAT is a faith-based society, the mission/vision is not focusing on religious matters alone, rather all areas that concern the growth, welfare and development of humanity.

The health centre was commissioned by the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Olushola Sanwo-olu, who was represented by Alhaji Mutahir Adams from the state’s Ministry of Home Affairs.

The Governor commended NASFAT in its efforts at improving people’s welfare.

Other dignitaries at the occasion include, the Chief Imam of Ikorodu Land, Sheikh Olowooribi, the Publisher of Oriwu Sun Newspaper, who also donated a mosque that was commissioned at the event, Alhaji Mansoor Olowosaago; the Oba of Igbogbo land, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Primary Health Board, Dr Mustapha, National Health Secretary of NASFAT, Dr Bakare and others.
