Important info muslim prospective corps member for Batch A stream 2

As controversy trail the new date for the NYSC orientation course for
batch a stream 2, here is an important information muslims as they
proceed to their various camps.

MCAN National executives had a meeting which was favourable to a
significant extent with the NYSC DG; Brig. General Suleiman Zakariya
Kazaure. The DG immediately acknowledged the presence of MCAN after he
finished a meeting with all state coordinators and camp Commandants
across the country. As soon as delegates were settled for meeting, the
DG rushed into informing MCAN about the Packages already made by the
scheme to ensure there is flexibility for Muslims who are fasting in
the camp.
After his submissions, MCAN National Amir; Br Abdullahi Imam Ishaq
informed the DG about how worried a lot of Muslims and Muslim
organisations are, due to the camping period which was fixed during
Ramadan. In response to this, the DG reemphasised that it was a very
difficult decision to fix the date during Ramadan, he further stated
that so many parents and PCMs claimed they were already too tired of
sitting at home, a case of Muslim and non-Muslim PCMs who came to
protest at the NYSC secretariat was also sighted, therefore the
management of the scheme decided to fix the camp date as soon as money
was released. The DG equally made his effort of how much he tried to
communicate with some Islamic figures within the country before the
date was fixed known to MCAN. After receiving some recommendations
from MCAN, The following are the packages prepared for Muslim PCMs;
Identification of all Muslim Corps member: MCAN representatives across
Nigeria shall be supportive during the NYSC registration process in
camp to gather the list of all Muslim corps members who are fasting
and design a suitable meal time table in collaboration with state
coordinators for the convenience of those fasting.
Flexibility and selection of MEAL: Muslim corps members in camp shall
have the opportunity to select how they want their meal to be, in
terms of Solid or light meal and which kind of available meal on NYSC
list they will like. This will be organised through MCAN
representatives and selected Muslim corps members in camp.
Exhaustive camping activities is very much optional, any Muslim who
cannot bear the camp Training should sit and watch those involved in
it, however, on no account should any Muslim abuse this privilege by
sleeping in the Hostel when they are not expected to.
Sisters can use their Long Hijab as they like in as much as it is
white but Long Hijab should not be used on Parade ground and drill
ground. The DG promised no official will disturb any sister on Hijab,
However, they should be as abiding and complying as much as possible.
The NYSC PRO; Mrs Aderibigbe also added to this point by advising that
sister can also stay in the masjid instead of going to parade ground
with long hijab.
MCAN members can volunteer to be part of cooking committee to assist
in cooking food that will be suitable for fasting corps members. In
respect of this point, MCAN encourages PCM who will be in camp to make
themselves available to prepare sahur and iftar for their colleagues.
Muslims can spend more time in the mosque to carry out some of their
religious rite which requires such, In fact , any muslim corps members
who feels his fate cannot bear the camping environment as they are
fasting should use the Masjid after, after they must have informed the
MCAN Amir of their respective state. However, this has to be under a
serious control system in order to prevent abuse of such opportunity.
MCAN representatives who must have meet with state coordinators will
help in coming to a consensus with the state coordinator and camp
commandant in regards to this.
With a mutual understanding between MCAN executives, Members and NYSC
state Management, In Shaa Allah we believe the Camping shall be
successful. In respect of this, we advise all Muslim Corps members to
register with MCAN on the first day of getting to camp so as to know
the Total number of Corps member fasting and proper arrangement will
be made for them.
Aside this, the DG assured MCAN of ensuring Hijab Is not an issue
within the scheme, He also bought the idea of a proposed Unity
conference to be organised by MCAN in collaboration with NCCF and
NCCA. In addition, MCAN recommended to the DG that there should be
provision of more NYSC lodges to accommodate both Muslims and
Christian corps members, as there is record that some corps members
were stranded or had nowhere to stay in states where they know no one
and there are shortage of MCAN, NCCF or NCCA lodges during PPA
registration process. Also, majority of the Corpers' lodges are rented
by these bodies at outrageous cost. The DG gave the assurance that the
issue will be looked into and ideas on way forward are welcomed. At
the end, MCAN presentend some gift items to the DG.
Finally, In as much as the camping will be less demanding for those
fasting and measures has been put in place to Protect the spirituality
of Muslims during this camp, WE PLEADE TO ALL MUSLIM CORPS MEMBERS NOT
TO ABUSE THE PRIVILEDGE and report anyone who might take advantage of
such privilege to the right authorities. Additionally, the second
Phase of MCAN registration shall be done in the camp Mosque.
NOTE:
ON THE FIRST DAY IN CAMP, MUSLIM PCMS SHOULD SUBMIT AN A4 SHEET, WITH
THEIR NAMES, PHONE NUMBERS , STATE CODE AND WHATSAPP NUMBER TO MCAN
OFFICIALS IN CAMP. THIS CAN BE HANDED OVER TO MCAN OFFICIALS WHILE PCM
QUEUE ON THE LINE FOR NYSC REGISTRATION.
On this note, everyone cannot be satisfied but this is how far Allah
has brought MCAN in regards to the issue at hand. We therefore seek
the forgiveness of Allah wherever we went wrong.
PLEASE, KINDLY ENSURE TO SHARE TO 2016 stream, ii PCMs BECAUSE IT IS
USEFUL TO THEM. JazakAllahu khaira (May Allah "God" reward you with
goodness)
