Parents urged to guide children against cultism, drugs
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.
