Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The chair­man of Abaji Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Ab­dul­rah­man Ajiya, has called on par­ents to en­sure that their chil­dren ac­quire both west­ern and Is­lamic ed­u­ca­tion in the area.

He stated this dur­ing the grad­u­a­tion and cel­e­bra­tion of the 5th year an­niver­sary of the Cen­tre for Is­lamic Ex­cel­lence, Nurs­ery/ Pri­mary and Sec­ondary School in the area on Satur­day.

He said the only legacy par­ents would give to a child was ed­u­ca­tion, adding that the coun­cil was ready to sup­port any par­ent whose child was ready to ac­quire both west­ern and Is­lamic ed­u­ca­tion.

“I be­lieve what this gen­tle­man has es­tab­lished here in Abaji, is very ben­e­fi­cial and we need to come to­gether to also con­trib­ute to­wards the prop­a­ga­tion of Is­lam,” he said.

Ear­lier, the di­rec­tor of the school, Malam Ab­dul­salam Imam, said he es­tab­lished it to en­cour­age chil­dren to ac­quire both west­ern and Is­lamic knowl­edge.

High­lights of the event were the recita­tion of the Qur’an, de­bate and pre­sen­ta­tion of cer­tifi­cates of merit to stu­dents.
