The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) was founded in 1954 in response to the yearnings of Muslim Students for a platform to discuss and find solutions to their common problems and challenges especially in the face of hostile colonial and evangelical environment then prevalent in the country, particularly in then publicly-funded Educational Institutions which a group had used the instrumentality of Government to appropriate.
