Speaking at the event, Mallam Yusuf Ali(SAN) berated government at all levels and religious bodies in the country for not showing enough commitment to execution of projects that could benefit humanity.

The legal giant who emphasised the essence of places of worship said ,"we must not be tired of assisting humanity".

He praised the leadership of the Kwara Council of NUJ under the leadership of comrade Abiodun Abdulkareem for execution of the two projects which he said would have direct and positive impacts on humanity.

Ali also announced that he would provide praying mats to the mosque as part of his contribution to the project.

In his lecture, the coordinator, Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria,Alhji Abdullahi Ibrahim who spoke on the importance of the two projects said congregational worship would attract greater reward from God.

Adedeji also emphasised the benefits of congregational worship, noting that great rewards await those who promote peaceful coexistence amongst mankind.

Chairman of NUJ, Abiodun AbdulKareem in his remarks, said the council had conceived the idea of the projects for three years before the outgoing executives under his leadership succeeded eventually.
