Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger is, by the grace of Allah the Almighty and with prayers of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa, leaping forward with each passing day, and consequently, needs are increasing along with the Jamaat’s progress. This situation prompted the Jamaat to seek new land for the headquarters of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger in Niamey, the capital of the country. It is worth noting that land in Niamey is very expensive.
Exactly one year ago, efforts commenced for acquiring the land. On 7 July 2021, Asad Majeeb Sahib, Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Niger had a meeting with the Minister of Urban Development, Mr Maizoumbou Laoual Amadou. A detailed report of this meeting had been published in Al Hakam on 30 July 2021, titled “Amir Jamaat Niger’s meeting with minister of urban development in Niamey, Niger”.
The minister had assured every possible cooperation and promised to find suitable land for the Jamaat.
The process continued and after a year of relentless struggle, Jamaat Niger has now managed to acquire the land from the government.
The land area is 9500 square meters and 3 km away from Diori Hamani International Airport of Niamey. This neighbourhood is one of the best residential areas in Niamey city. The former president, Tandja Mamadou’s Palace is just 100 meters from the piece of land.
Niger Jamaat’s national amila also visited the land and a collective prayer was offered there.
May Allah the Almighty in his infinite goodness make this land a blessing for Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya and reward those who assisted in this project. Amin.
