The Emir of Kanam, Muhammadu Babangida Muazu, has urged Governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong, to establish more schools in Jos North local government area.
The Emir said, in recent time, schools that were not up to standard around Anguwan Rogo/Anguwan Rimi communities and others were closed down by the state government in areas where Muslims are in dominant, “but the government needs to establish other schools in those areas.”
The Emir stated this in a speech at the 48th annual Eid-el-Maulud with the theme; “Prophet Muhammad (SAW), A symbol of Unity” held at the Jos central mosque.
“We need those schools in our areas, because we are too many. Commissioner, I am therefore passing this message to you, to take it to the government, to build more schools in those Muslim dominated areas,” he stressed.
According to him, Muslims have every reason to celebrate Maulud, “because it is all about the life of Prophet Muhammad SAW, and it is good for every Muslim to rise in praises of Allah, either in the morning, afternoon, evening or night.
“Parents generally, should ensure good moral upbringing of their children and wards,” he said.
The emir admonished all to celebrate in peaceful manner, stressing that they should ensure that they do not trample on any body’s right.
Chairman of Ittihadu Anwaril Hidayat Plateau State, Yusuf Yahaya, called on the state government, to “involve only Muslims in the allocation of hajj sponsored seats to pilgrimage to the holy land of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
“We call government to do what it has been doing to the Christians, whereby only Christians are involved in the allocation of sponsored seats at the Christian pilgrims board,” he said.
