FRIDAY 24th MAY 2019. 21:00hrs
Sunday 19th May, 2019 marked the occasion when the Foundation of Islamic Information (SL) Limited (FOISIL) held its Sixth edition of its annual National Quranic Memorization Competition at Fourah Bay college. The occasion was a well attended one with people from various parts of the country representing their regions. The occasion also attracted high profile dignitaries including the First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Her Excellency Mrs. Fatima Bio.
In her statement, the first lady encouraged all to continue to support and attend programmes of this kind and emphatically urged all to have the seventh edition of the competition staged at the National Stadium.
The National Quranic Memorization Competition is always set to select the best memorizers of the Qur’an across the country. Before the final Competition is held, the grand final is preceded by series of preliminary Competitions
conducted at regional levels to select the most efficient reciters. Proficient reciters are qualified to represent their various regions at the national level.
For this year’s Competition, Chernor A. O. Jalloh of the western region obtained the first position and therefore took home the grand prize of ten million leones
(Le 10,000,000) and a very prestigious FOISIL award. Both the runners up and the third person obtained five million leones (Le5,000,000) and two million leones (Le2,000,000) respectively.
Other competitors were also given various prizes and the other two categories of two-third (2/3) and half (1/2) the Qur’an given FOISIL awards and some amount of leones.
