Parents tasked on quality Western, Islamic education for their wards
The Commander General, Kano State Hisbah Board, Sheikh Harun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina has called on parents and guardians to work hard in ensuring that their wards receive western and Islamic education as well as good morals to protect them against drug abuse and all forms of vices.
This was just as he said that drug abuse and other societal vices had been on the rise among youths in the state, hence the urgent need for parents, guardians and relevant stakeholders to work together in ending the menace.
He made the assertion at a qur’anic graduation in Kumbotso Local Government of Kano State.
According to him, speaking as an agency saddled with the responsibility of a mediator, ‘the high number of cases involving minors and teenagers is alarming.’
He reaffirmed the state government’s commitment toward uplifting the standard of education in state for students to compete with others globally.
Earlier, a renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abdallah Gadon Kaya had called on philanthropists and wealthy individuals in the state to come to the aid of Islamiyya schools.
He noted that most Islamiyya schools lack the necessary funds to pay staff salaries and other logistics due to the inability of most parents to pay school fees.
Sheikh Abdallah Gadon Kaya said most parents spent large amounts of money for school fees without due consideration for Islamiyya schools.
Speaking at the occasion, the headmaster of the Islamiyya schools, Malam Nura Abdullahi Abubakar reiterated the school’s commitment to providing quality education for the students.
Abubakar lamented about lack of adequate space to accommodate the large number of students in the school.
He then appealed to government, philanthropists and relevant stakeholders in the state to come to their aid.
He maintained that the school was founded 18 years ago after the donation of land by one of the residents.
The occasion attracted Islamic scholars, traditional leaders, government officials, students and the general public.
