The 22nd pre-Ramadan lecture of the University of Lagos Muslim Alumni (UMA) will hold on Sunday at the main auditorium of the university.
According to the chairman of the organising committee, Dr Saheed Ahmad Rufai, the lecture with the topic “The Muslim: Between the idea and the Contemporary Perception” will have Professor Yusef Waghid of the Department of Education Policy Studies, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, as the English speaker, while Sheikh Muhammad Rabiu Adebayo Abdul-Malik, founder and director of Darul-Ifta’wan-Najaat Arabic School, Oworonshoki, Lagos State, will address the audience in Yoruba language.
