Excitement is perhaps the word that best qualifies the mood of the graduating Muslim Students of the University of Lagos who arrived the aesthetically decorated Islamic Centre Hall (ICH), venue of the memorable dinner and awards night in celebration mood.
The dress sense of the celebrants, both males and females, at the UGMS’19, an acronym for UNILAG Graduating Muslim Students dinner and awards night when went down on Friday, 8th November 2019, further gave out the glitz and glamour that has come to define the event.
While the handsome male finalists were on native clothing such as agbada, danshiki, lace or the conventional suit and shirt and trouser, the beautiful female finalists donned their usual Jilbaab, Muslim women attires, on different shades of heels.
Food wasn’t a problem at the colourful event organised by the MSSN Unilag chapter. The whole hall was littered with variant of delicious and nutritious meals served after the welcome ice-cream and cake, alongside the mouthwatering pepper soup. The aroma filled the air as the eyes and nose couldn’t deny the sumptuousness of what the tongues tasted.
Ranging from the traditional Amala garnished with gbegiri and chicken, Poundo yam, to the conventional Jollof and Fried rice decorated with creamy salad and chicken; the event was one that you would not pray your enemy misses.
Apart from the menu and other frenzies, one other major thing that added beauty to the event was the distribution of awards to deserving individuals.
A prominent personality who graced the event was the former Commissioner for Home Affairs, Lagos State, Hon. AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef (popularly known as Hon. Iyepe). He advised the finalists on the need to further their education and prayed for a successful life for all the prospective graduands.
