The Aliko Dangote Foundation has completed a mosque valued at over N100 million and handed it over to the Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN).

Aliko Dangote Foundation had taken over the building of the mosque in Utako District of Abuja following an appeal made by FOMWAN to the President of the Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote.

Speaking at the handover ceremony in Abuja on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, the National Ameera of FOMWAN, Hajiya Amina B. Omoti, said now that the mosque has been officially handed over to FOMWAN, it will be commissioned and opened for Jumaat prayers in January next year.

She said the group had started the building when it appealed to the Dangote Foundation for assistance. While commending and praying for the Dangote Foundation, she also expressed gratitude to the Sultan of Sokoto Saad Abubakar for his numerous supports towards the realization of the mosque.

“Words are not enough to express how we feel but suffice it to note that over 80,000 registered members of FOMWAN and Muslim Ummah are in awe over this beautiful house of worship,” she said. She said the Board of Trustees will soon meet to constitute a management committee for the mosque.

Representative of the Dangote Foundation, Musa Bala said the mosque was part of the philanthropic spirit of the Foundation. He said the President of the Group is passionate about the place of women in the society, and that was why the Foundation implemented a N10bn micro grant scheme to empower women in Nigeria. He said the Dangote Foundation is not resting on its oars in supporting the less privilege and women in particular.

Speaking at the event, the National Deputy Ameera, Hajiya Sada Yusuf, prayed that Allah bless Alhaji Aliko Dangote, even as she requested that the Foundation continue to support FOMWAN activities in Nigeria.

“We are like Oliver Twist. We are asking for more, especially in the area of landscaping of the mosque environment,” she said.

Former National Deputy Ameera, Maryam Uthman, thanked all those who contributed to the making the mosque a success story, adding that Alhaji Aliko Dangote now occupies a special place among Nigerian women.

Speaking also the National Secretary General Dr Mrs Ummaimah Momoh described the President of the Dangote Group as “philanthropy per excellence”.

    1. 100 Million what??? Give me a break Dangote!! He can do better than giving a 100 Million mosque to women. What is the use when women cannot be alone or lead prayers in the mosque by themselves? Stand to be corrected about that statement though.
      What about empowering those women with a start up money for business to put food on their tables?

  2. So where is the "100M naira mosque?"
    Not even a picture?

    1. Anon 13.00 I'm very tired of this loud lying people. Is all to get more richer lying at the expense of poor people.

    2. They are lucky if they get the mosque in 10 years and if they do, it might cost about 10Million or so. BTW, the land is going to be given free by the govt for that purpose.

  3. Dangote is such a nice and generous man... Allah keep blessing him more and more

    1. At Isaac Tell me how he has helped you or the community? Do you know how many people that has lost their lives with his truck and wasn't compensated? God knows I have no personal hatred for him but have issues with his mode of doing business in the country. He is a very ruthless businessman that monopolies commodity business in Nigeria. With how he has monopolies the industry, he should do better than giving a mosque. TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN MUCH IS EXPECTED
