Islamic cleric, less privileged commend NTIC for distributing meat
An Islamic cleric, Abdusemiu Alkilany and some less privileged persons in Isheri-Olofin Community, Ogun State have commended the Nigeria Tulip International College (NTIC) for distributing meat to different persons for the Sallah celebration.
Alkilany, who is Chief Imam and Chaplain, Islamic Education and Faith Initiative, Magodo, appreciated the college for being worthy and committed to their way of preaching peace and harmony.
He also applauded other Islamic or local education institutions that extended the same gestures and gave back to society, especially the needy.
Besides, an educationist with Chrisland Schools, Gabriel Ohore, commended NTIC for the gift, noting that it assisted the less privileged to have a memorable Sallah.
A resident of Isheri-Olofin, Mrs. Toma Adamu, expressed joy for being a beneficiary of the gesture and wished the school well in all its endeavours.
“This is my second year of benefiting from the meat distribution and it has been helping me to enjoy Sallah with my husband and children. I wish the school well and pray that God continues to assist them too,” she said.
Principal of the College, Ercan Yilmaz, said NTIC slaughtered 90 cows for the charity programme at the Ogun State branch, while similar number were also slaughtered in other zones across the country.
Yilmaz said beneficiaries of the gesture, which cut across all faiths, comprised orphanages, prisons, staff of government establishments, mosques, churches and disabled people’s homes.
