The College of Management Sciences of the University, in conjunction with the Management Sciences Students’ Association, is organising a one-day Symposium titled: Islamic Financing and Economic Development, slated for January 30, 2014 at the University auditorium, by 9AM. Given the orientation of this institution, there could not have been a more apt theme than this one for the Symposium.

Two banks with Islamic banking window have been invited to make presentations at the Symposium where the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Sulyman Age Abdulkareem, will be the Chief Host and the Registrar, Alhaja (Chief)  Rashidat Oladimeji, a Guest Participant, along with all the Professors, Deans of Colleges and Heads of Departments.

The renowned Ilorin-based lawyer, Mallam Yusuf Olaolu Ali (SAN), will be the Chairman of the event, while Engineer Lanre Shagaya is Special Guest-of-Honour. The Moderator of the event is the versatile Dr L.F. Oladimeji of Islamic Studies Department of the University.

This is an event of both historic and developmental relevance from which both town and gown and, in particular, the students of Al-Hikmah University stand to reap a bounteous harvest.

    This is an intellectual symposium because the two invited speakers from Jaiz Bank and Stanbic IBTC Bank – Dr. Mizanur Rahman and Mr. Kazeem Ige respectively did justice to the topic “Islamic Financing and Economic Development”. The symposium is an eyes opener to the public that Islamic bank is for the Nigerians and not for muslim alone. It is meant to alleviate the suffering of Nigerians both muslims and non muslims by enable them have access to interest free fund to enhance their businesses. Islamic Bank packages need to be read by people in order to appreciate it usefulness. It is type of bank that Nigerian need where majority are still living far below poverty line. College of Management Sciences, Al – Hikmah University has actually done well by educating the public on this discourse.
