The Muslim Community of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta has organised a Send-Forth in honour of its retirees.
Delivering his Address at the occasion, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kolawole Salako, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Bolanle Akeredolu-Ale stated that a lot of good things can be said about the Muslim retirees that served the University.

Admonishing the retirees, Amir, FUNAAB Muslim Community, Prof. Lateef Sanni appreciated the retired staff for honouring the invitation, stressing that the Muslim body in FUNAAB is indivisible. He sued for unity among Muslims and charged Muslims not to fight for position because all that Allah planned to do for everyone shall manifest.
