The Standard Bearers Islamic Organisation, Abuja, has finalised arrangements for the grand finale of its 2020 Career Mentorship Programme (CMP) aimed at identifying and rewarding indigent but brilliant Muslim students through scholarships.

A statement by the group signed by its coordinator, Idris Jumah, stated that the CMP was an annual event created to lighten the burden of Muslim students in the final stages of secondary school who might not be able pay for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and other examinations required for admission into tertiary institutions in the country.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)
