The Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA) Ibadan Chapter and Bodija Muslim Youth Forum (BOMYOF) will on Sunday hold the annual picnic to herald the new Islamic year Hijrah 1439 A.H.

In a statement by the UNIFEMGA Public Relations Officer, Abdulfattah Alade stated that the occasion will hold at Trans Amusement Park, Agbowo, Ibadan.
