Murtala Muhammed Foundation Empowers Young Scholars Through Mentorship


The Murtala Muhammed Foundation recently visited Federal Government College Maiduguri to offer support and guidance to the Foundation’s Young Scholars there. The visit aimed to help these young students find their way towards successful careers.

During the visit, the tertiary scholars, who are recipients of the Murtala Muhammed Foundation Scholarship Program, shared their own stories of facing challenges and overcoming them. They also took time to have personal chats with the young scholars, giving them advice on different career options, education paths, and how to develop useful skills.

These conversations weren’t just informative; they also encouraged the students to get involved and ask questions, opening up new ideas about the many career paths available to them.

Overall, the visit was a big success, leaving a lasting impression on everyone involved. It showed how dedicated the Murtala Muhammed Foundation is to helping young people become future leaders by giving them the support and motivation they need to succeed.


The Murtala Muhammed Foundation invites all Nigerians to contribute to our ongoing effort to document the events of the #EndSars protest in 2020. We are seeking your eyewitness accounts and reflections to feature in our upcoming book.

Our goal is to create a comprehensive portrayal of the #EndSARS Movement, capturing its significance from various perspectives. Whether you participated in the protests, witnessed key moments, or have valuable insights to share, we want to hear from you.

Your story is crucial in providing authentic evidence and firsthand experiences. We encourage submissions from across Nigeria, not just Lagos State where the movement began. The impact of #EndSARS reverberated nationwide, and we are committed to representing every viewpoint in our book.

MMF Reaffirms Commitment: 10 Years Since Chibok Girls’ Abduction

In April, the Murtala Muhammed Foundation (MMF) marked a significant milestone in our ongoing dedication to the Bring-Back-Our Girls mission. It has been a decade since the tragic abduction of the Chibok Girls, and MMF stood strong, honouring their memory through a series of impactful events.

Our virtual gathering, a centrepiece of these events, featured a poignant report launch and a thought-provoking panel discussion with eight experts. The report shed light on the heartbreaking realities faced by the Chibok community: out of the 276 abducted girls, only 21 have returned, accompanied by 34 children. This report unveiled the grim truth of the sexual violence and forced marriages endured by these girls during their captivity, with 91 still missing.

The coverage of our report by esteemed outlets like Tribune, PMMews, Independent and more amplified the urgency of our cause, exposing the devastating toll on families. Tragically, 48 parents of victims have passed away since the abduction, while survivors continue to battle profound psychological trauma, impacting their education and employment prospects.

In response to these challenges, MMF’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Aisha Muhammad-Oyebode, presented ten vital recommendations during the report’s unveiling. These proposals implore the Nigerian government and the international community to prioritize the well-being and reintegration of survivors.

In addition to our virtual gathering, MMF organized poignant events around the world to honour the resilience of the Chibok Girls. From “Remembering the Chibok Girls: A Decade of Resilience” at Brooklyn College, New York, in partnership with BBOG, to a Fireside Chat and Photo Exhibition at The Africa Center, MMF ensured that their story resonated globally.

As we reflect on this sombre anniversary, MMF reaffirms our unwavering commitment to securing the release of those still in captivity and supporting their successful reintegration into society. Together, we continue to stand in solidarity with the Chibok community, offering hope and advocacy for a brighter future.

Get ready to journey with us as we uncover the inspiring narratives behind the tangible impact of our programs. Stay tuned for fascinating updates coming your way!
