SAFAR 25 1431 A.H., TUESDAY FEBRUARY 9, 2010 published in the Daily Triumph (Kano, Nigeria)
ISLAMIC scholars in Kano state have advised government to map out strategies aimed at ensuring the success of school examinations among students, most of whom fail at the O level stage. This observation was made by Sheikh Isma’ila Khalipha during the celebration of the 52nd anniversary of the birthday of Sheikh Ahmad Tijjani, held at Jakara quarters in Dala local government area.
According to Sheikh Khalipha, students are always committed to their studies but at the end, they end up failing the final exams. He added that, “this retards them to further their education as well as hinders them from getting an employment.” He, therefore, urged government and authorities concerned to look into the matter seriously to enhance the educational development in the state.
Similarly, Sheikh Farouk Hassan Sani Kafinga has enjoined Kano state government to promote the wellbeing of its citizens especially in the provision of adequate drinking water, electricity and employment oppor-tunities. Sheikh Kafinga made this call in his lecture, where he also highlighted the significance of Sufism as fear of God.
In his speech, Sheikh Sani Muhammad Katagum, Dan Madamin Katagum, urged Muslim Ummah to sympathize with the victims of Jos crisis by supporting them with necessary assistance and prayed for unity among Muslims.
Among the participants were Sheikh Yusuf Gabari, Sheikh Sani Shehu Mai Hula, former Speaker House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’abba, and former Kano governor, Dr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.
