Driven by the devotion and passion for the development of the Africa continent, members of the Pan-Africa Club, University of Ilorin have successfully held their maiden congress.
The congress, which was held last Friday was a byproduct of the narrative-changing agenda of the group and its resolve towards the renaissance of the concept of Africanism as an age-long propeller of leadership dispensation on the continent.
At the well-attended congress, issues bordering on laying a strong foundation for the club, placing it strategically in the scheme of things, and mobilization of prospective members had topped the deliberation circuit.
The Acting President of the Club, Yemi Sodeeq charged members to brace up for the cause which he described as a rebirth and revival of the eroding African value system.
“No effort is too small at bringing the lost glory of this continent back, and I believe this initiative will prepare us for the pressing task of mitigating all the negative circumstances holding us down.”
He expressed the imperatives of restoring the idea of continental pride and glorification, adding that the youth must take responsibility for the development of the land.
The Pan-Africa Club is an organization that, among many other things, seeks to promote African ideals, mobilize towards leadership while also reasserting the African Spirit as the cradle of modern civilization.
