The Head of Department of Educational Technology at the University of Ilorin, Prof. Mudasiru Yusuf, has urged Nigerians to re-evaluate themselves to be more honourable.

In a lecture organised by the Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA), Yusuf said that 62 per cent of Nigerian women were unfaithful.

In the lecture entitled "Honour in a Nation, Where Honour is a Luxury," Yusuf said that almost all aspects of the nation was unfortunate to be characterised with dishonest individuals.

"The issue of honesty has to do with ethos and integrity; even Allah had honoured man, it is man who therefore has degraded himself and brought himself low," he said.

According to him, God is divine and clean and does not accept any act except clean and honourable actions from his creations.

Yusuf, who criticised people using their position to tarnish the image of the country, however, commended the few who remained resolute in performing the best actions and remained honourable.

Earlier, the President of UNIFEMGA, Prof. Abdulwahab Egbewole, said the policy trust of the programme was to identify with members in realising a family centred mantra as a core value.

He pointed out that honour was a scarce commodity in the country where those perceived as honourable were indeed dishonest.

"As a policy, we do not honour members with political appointment and we only celebrate our members who are appointed to political office after their tenure," he said.

Speaking in the same vein, Malam Yusuf Ali (SAN) said that the programme was about honouring Muslims who had achieved distinction, while recognising excellence and challenging others to offer their best to the society.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the programme was chaired by the Chief Judge of Kwara, Justice Suleiman Kawu.

A total of 13 members were honoured, included Justice Munta Abimbola, Chief Judge of Oyo State, Alhaji Taofik Oladipupo, Permanent Secretary in Oyo State Ministry of Lands and Housing, the Director of Administration at INEC, Dr Muslim Omoleke, and others.
