Par­ents urged to guide chil­dren against cultism, drugs

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Ahmed Ab­dul­lahi

Par­ents have been urged to cau­tion their chil­dren against cultism and use of hard drugs.

A direc­tor at the Na­tional Uni­ver­si­ties Com­mis­sion (NUC), Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Hamza, made the plea on Sat­ur­day dur­ing the 15th Speech and Prize Giv­ing day Cer­e­mony of Hay­atul Is­lam In­ter­na­tional School, Karu, Abuja.

He said par­ents should be vig­i­lant and en­sure they gave their chil­dren proper home train­ing.

“Preach to them and en­gage them in Is­lamic ac­tiv­i­ties. Draw their at­ten­tion nearer to God and they should know that the pur­pose of their creation is to serve God and noth­ing more,” he said.

He said par­ents should groom their chil­dren in both Is­lamic and Western ed­u­ca­tion and em­pha­sised that gov­ern­ment’s rel­e­vant reg­u­la­tory body should en­sure strict mon­i­tor­ing and in­spec­tion of pri­vate schools in line with the na­tional cur­ricu­lum.

The school’s prin­ci­pal, Al­haji Ab­dul Az­izah, ap­pealed to teach­ers to re­spect their pro­fes­sion and carry out their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties dili­gently.
