The Muslim Student Society, (MSS), of the American University of Nigeria, (AUN), Yola, Adamawa State, on Saturday held a send-forth ceremony for its graduating seniors.
The graduating students were recognized and appreciated for their contributions to the MSS.
The society also prayed for the members as they embark on the journey to the real world where they would face the challenges of survival.
The event took place at the Robert Pastor Library auditorium and was attended by a cross-section of students, faculty and staff of the university.
The MSS Faculty Advisors, Abba Tahir and Hayatu Raji, were also present at the ceremony.
In his farewell speech, Mr. Raji advised the graduating students to use what they have learnt in the society to explore more opportunities in the real world.
He said, “You are all leaders, do not go out there and forget what you have learnt here. Make good use of it. Make a change somewhere.
“Inspire others to make change and create new ideas and explore new opportunities.”
Former President of the MSS, Ibrahim Abubakar, advised the seniors to follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad and his companions and apply them wherever they go.
“As you embark on this journey, I advise you all to follow the teachings of the Prophet and that would help you. Be fair to everyone you meet outside this school. You all would surely be missed,” Mr. Abubakar said.
Newly elected MSS executive were also recognised and graduating seniors were presented with membership certificates.
